History:

This 2 owner Mercedes 190SL was delivered new in California and spent there his whole life. The last 50 years it was parked in a dry barn.

We have the history since 1963. Mr. James W. Green bought this vehicle new or as an used car. (we cannot verify anymore) At least he had it since 1963. The title and some photos confirm this.

He used it as a weekend driver and parked with unknown reason in his barn. He never used it since.
