Description for Mercedes-Benz 190-Series 1961

1961 Mercedes Benz type W121 190B for sale. Hard to believe this car is 56 years old. The little 4 cylinder overhead engine is still very strong and the car runs very smooth. The car has column shift with 4 forward gears and 1 reverse gear, and has no issues changing gears. The underneath of the car is very solid with very little surface rust. The most recent work done on the car was new brake shoes and wheel cylinder fixes. I have owned the car for over 14 years. At the time of the purchase I had most of the chrome re-done, the interior re-done, new door seals, new steering wheel, carburetor rebuilt, fuel pump replaced and the car was painted. The odometer on the car shows 79166, I believe it could be the genuine mileage but it can’t be verified. The car comes with the original set of tools and manual. Since I love driving this car, I wanted to make sure that I had some key parts in stock should something fail. Hence, several years ago I purchased a complete engine with starter, generator and radiator from a salvage yard. Had the spare engine completely rebuilt by a machine shop and wasbench tested. I also purchased a whole bunch of other parts from ebay and from other places, such as door handle, lenses, clock and chrome trims. So not only are you buying a beautiful car you also getting a bunch of parts to maintain and keep it road worthy. Please note the car and the spare engine and all the other parts being sold as without any warranty. Car is located in Pleasanton, CA. Buyer should make all shipping and pickup arrangements.
1) About the Paint
The original color of car was white. When I bought the car it was already painted black. I then repainted the car black about 13 years ago. Paint is in good condition with minor swirl and scratches.
2) Is the engine original
Yes the engine is original. The only modification I did I added a spin oil filter adapter so that I could change the oil filter much more often. You can easily revert back to the original canister paper type filter.
3) Any oil leaks.
The car is 56 years old so it does have some minor oil leaks.
4) Has the car been driven recently.
I recently drove the car on a 40 miles road trip. I normally just drive the car in the neighborhood. The car is registered.
5) Title of the car
The title of the car is clear. The car is currently registered
