Mercedes Benz W121 Workshop Repair Manuals

The roadster variant of the W121 sedan, the R121, better known as the 190SL, was produced from 1955 to 1963. W121 190SL History

The Mercedes-Benz 190 SL (W121) is a two-door luxury roadster produced between May 1955 and February 1963. It was first shown in prototype at the 1954 New York Auto Show, available with optional removable hardtop.

The 190 SL was built on a shortened monocoque R121 platform, modified from the W121 small saloon.

The 190 SL was powered by a 105 PS (77 kW; 104 hp) Type M121 BII 1.9 L straight-four SOHC engine. It was fitted with twin-choke dual Solex carburetors, and produced 120 gross hp. This motor with lower hp was later used in the W120 180 and W121 190 sedans.

The 190SL was available either as a soft-top convertible (initially priced at US$ 3,998) or with removable hardtop ($ 4,295). A small third-passenger transverse seat was optional. In its first years the 190 SL was available as a sports-racing model with small perspex windscreen and spartan one-piece leather covered bucket seats along with aluminum doors. In 1959.
