1962 Mercedes 190SL: Parked And Forgotten

Forgotten Sleeping Beauty.

When I first came across the pictures for a 1962 Mercedes-Benz 190SL on eBay, I was mesmerized. There it was, all these years, hiding in the woods. And when the trees and brush were cut away, pulling that old girl out of the shade – well, what an experience that must have been. Heck, just getting the call that there’s an old convertible Mercedes languishing away, ready to be picked and you’re the only one that knows about it, has to be damn near euphoric!

This increasingly valuable convertible is already past $30,000 in bids with the reserve unmet. It is not a project for the faint of heart, but the white over red color combo is one of the best and this example truly does appear all-there despite needing a total restoration. I’d love to know more about the original owner and why his or her heirs felt dumping the car in the woods was the best option, but that’s a story for another time. What do you think the final price will be?

This rust bucket reached a winning bid of $47,100, but either the buyer backed out or the seller decided they wanted more money, as the car has been relisted. Now it is being offered on eBay with a BIN of $47,500.
