Mercedes 190SL tops the board at Barons


A 1962 Mercedes-Benz 190SL made £29,000 on the hammer at Barons’ Sandown sale last Sunday, making it the auction’s highest-priced lot.

Imported from the USA in 1965 and owned by the same family since ’67, the convertible was dry-stored from 1984-2009 and was said to have had an extremely solid body and chassis.

Second-place went to a 2000 Ferrari 456M GTA. The three-owner car had covered 47,000 miles, came with a full service history and was treated to a service 1500 miles ago to sale. It scooped £25k.

A 1956 Ford Zephyr Convertible with an indicated 67,000 miles was next in line (selling for £20,000), followed by a 1972 Jaguar E-type Series 3 (£16,600) that came with receipts for £20k’s worth of work in the past 12 months.

Other cars that caught our eye included a 1965 Fiat 500D (£7200), a 58,000-mile Porsche 968 (£5350) and an Opel Manta (£2700).




All these cars speaks off their ability and design. So good to know that Mercedes Benz raised such amount of money. But I liked the Fiat. It is pretty good.
