No other brand seems to attract so many dedicated fans across so many years of production. It’s for that reason that we work on all types of Mercedes, from 1950s Mercedes 190 SL’s as well as 1990s 190E models and everything in between. In 1953 it was the Mercedes 180 ‘Pontoon’ that began Mercedes reputation of long lasting, solidly made and good performing cars. By 1954 the 300SL Gullwing was launched, the first fuel injected production car in the world. The 190SL Roadster cemented Mercedes reputation as a maker of stylish sports cars which has continued to the present day. The Mercedes Thin Tail 300SE Coupe of 1961 was the start of an almost endless series of brilliant coupes that evolved through the W111, W108, W109 and W114 Models.
Mercedes legendary build quality has meant that you can find many examples of all models to restore today. There is also a good selection of newly made repair panels available and the cars are fairly straightforward to restore. Whilst there are fantastic reproductions of trim and chrome parts available, these are very expensive. Parts for 190 SL particularly so, we are always happy to inspect a potential car for a customer, it really is in the small details where what looks to be a straightforward restoration can prove to be a very expensive one.
