    Manuals

    I was going through my late father's things and found a couple of 190SL manuals that are in very good condition. One is "Catalog A", printed in 1955 (94 pages). The other is "Instruction Manual", printed in 1957 (52 pages). My dad worked at a MB restoration shop in the 1980's and likely acquired these at that time. Are either of these manuals rare or in demand? I looked up similar ones on ebay, but couldn't find these exact books. Prices were all over the map.

    I also found a 300SL "Spare Parts List", edition C, 1956 (336 pages) that is in excellent condition.

    Re: Manuals

    Prices asked on eBay are very high but if you look at sold listings, they are more down to earth. I would not call the 190sl manuals rare but ones in good condition are are not common. I can’t speak to the 300sl literature.
