However, today is a different story and these cars are red hot, following in the footsteps of their 300SL siblings, which have rocketed to the very top of high-end collectors' must-have lists. Is this car a bargain today? Absolutely. No, this isn't a concours specimen, but you already knew that just by the price. Perfect cars are trading hands for close to twice this figure, so you've got some room to work here and still come out ahead; and that's providing that prices stand still, which is quite unlikely according to the current market trend. So you have to look at this light blue roadster as a rare opportunity to get a fun car that will potentially earn its keep in the coming years. In the meantime, however, you get a handsome 2-seater that has all the styling cues of its million-dollar siblings in a much more user-friendly package. Thanks to legendary Mercedes-Benz quality, even the affordable 190 was ridiculously over-built (especially for 1959) and today feels substantial, not fragile. Sheetmetal is in good order and with either top on or off, the doors close firmly without excessive effort. It buffs up nicely and has a period-correct shine and the light blue color is highlighted by nice chrome and stainless trim that offers impeccable good taste without excess. The handsome gray interior was replaced about ten years ago and shows some signs of use, but that's to be expected in a car that's been shown off around town. At the time it was done, these were not investment-grade cars, so it's not quite factory-exact, but it looks right for the period and the basics are quite good. The gray and blue combination is rather attractive and the big white steering wheel is a Mercedes-Benz trademark of the period. There are also big, easy-to-read VDO gauges (even the wind-up clock works!) and the 4-speed manual transmission makes for a rather sporting driving experience. Darker gray carpets are an elegant touch and it has recently been treated to a modern AM/FM/iPod stereo system, making it a fantastic fair-weather cruiser. The blue canvas convertible top folds easily and seals up better than many roadsters of the period (again, thanks to Mercedes-Benz engineering), and the car looks great top up or top down, and the car includes a removable hardtop as well. The trunk isn't huge, but it's well-shaped and offers plenty of room for two people's luggage on a road trip. The 1.9 liter inline-four engine isn't a match for the mighty 300SL, but it's reasonably lively and eager to run. With twin side-draft Mikuni carburetors, it feels gutsy around town and as the intervening years have proven, it is as reliable as the sunrise. The engine bay shows signs of regular and conscientious maintenance, which is especially critical on these cars, and it does run rather well today thanks to a recent tune-up. The undercarriage is original and a bit crusty, with an older single exhaust system that offers a reasonably sporting soundtrack and an all-independent suspension tuned for comfort but still willing to hustle on your favorite country road. Steel wheels with color-matched hubcaps are a favorite look and they carry recent 185/70/13 whitewall radials. With just two owners from new, this is a great-running and very presentable 190SL that can be enjoyed as-is or used as a basis for a top-flight restoration that could top the skyrocketing market. Hard choice, isn't it?
