The Mercedes is undoubtedly the daddy of classic cars and a popular choice among serious collectors. This 190E came to us for several repairs, a good deal of restoration and a big respray. This is the type of work that White’s Bodyworks really does excel at and it’s why classic car enthusiasts seek us out.
There’s something substantial about this car which is probably why it was a popular choice with celebrities over the 70s and 80s. Dealing with a car like this, especially when it requires extensive work, is a pretty big project and requires having all the right equipment on site.
More About the Mercedes 190E
The Mercedes 190E was one of the first ‘executive’ style cars to be produced in the 80s and nearly 2 million of them came off the assembly line. It’s a car you still see on the roads today and the engineering makes it a pleasure to drive.
It was also one of the more economical cars to come out of this era. With the comfortable drive, it was perfect for a busy executive but also substantial enough to make a big statement. For such a big car, you might be surprised to know that it had a top speed of 143 mph. That was in part due to its substantial Cosworth engine.
