A visual highlight: front ornamentation for the Mercedes-Benz 190 SL

Mercedes Benz 190 SL grey from the side perspective

Classic car fans know that the Mercedes-Benz 190 SL is based on the 180 model and was once developed as an elegant touring roadster for the top ten thousand. The year was 1954 when the Mercedes-Benz 190 SL with its unmistakable hood was presented to an enthusiastic public. Under this beautiful hood was a completely newly developed 1.9-liter four-cylinder petrol engine with no less than 105 hp, which took the car from 0 to 100 km/h in around 14 seconds and achieved a top speed of up to 170 km/h. The Mercedes-Benz 190 SL was not only a fantastic convertible, but could also be purchased as a coupé with a removable hardtop.

An eye-catcher: the front ornament of the Mercedes 190 SL

For all these reasons, the car is still an absolute specialty today and, above all, a lucrative investment. This makes it all the more important to preserve the value of this classic car. This applies in particular to the perfect outfit, which also includes its front ornamentation.

Stainless steel is more durable

In the past, the front ornamentation for the Mercedes 190 SL was chrome-plated, but today stainless steel is increasingly being used. Visually, the difference is barely noticeable. The reason is obvious, because stainless steel is much more durable and does not rust. This means that scratches on stainless steel can be polished away yourself, and drivers can even remove small dents themselves. Chrome-plated nose decorations, on the other hand, have to be re-chromed again and again at great expense. However, the stainless steel nose trim for the Mercedes 190SL is no longer original.

What you should know

However, the cross struts and star are only available as originals, which is why a set only consists of the lower and upper frame. A very good condition of the bodywork is essential for a perfect fit. The unchromed replica of a front ornament for the Mercedes 190SL consists of four parts: Lower part, upper part and the left and right side parts. Visit our well-stocked online store.

220 S braking device – safely on the road with a classic car

Functioning brakes are the be-all and end-all when it comes to driving safely on the road. A faulty or worn braking device puts yourself and other road users in danger. But even if an accident caused by worn brake discs or a malfunctioning brake unit only results in damage to the bodywork, this can lead to high costs and a great deal of time and effort, especially in a classic car like the 220 S from Mercedes Benz, which is why it is worth carrying out maintenance for the 220 S braking device at regular intervals.

The 220 S braking device in particular, which is one of the most complicated safety components, should be checked regularly. The wear and tear on this braking device is gradual. Many drivers do not immediately notice that their braking system is no longer fully functional. They get used to the ever-increasing pedal pressure and the longer braking distance.

Finding the right spare parts for classic cars is usually relatively difficult. Drivers of vintage Mercedes Benz cars have it very easy by comparison. The niemöller online store offers a large selection of spare parts for Mercedes passenger cars built between 1946 and 1975.

On the overview page for the Mercedes 220S, model 180.010, you can see an exploded view which you can use to find the required spare part for the 220 S braking device, even without the exact part number.

Mercedes 190 SL – a classic that not only makes classic car enthusiasts shine

The Mercedes 190 SL is one of the first series from Mercedes with a self-supporting body. Built from 1955, the 190 SL is a touring sports car that was already very popular at the time. Equipped with a more powerful engine than its predecessor, the 180, and slightly upgraded on the inside, it also stood out on the outside. In addition to the hub caps 190 sl, on which the Mercedes star was significantly larger, the visual changes included front hinged windows, large rear lights, a slightly wider radiator grille and longer trim strips, which were now also to be found on the underside of the windows. The 190 SL was fitted with thirteen-inch wheels with spoke hubcaps, also available as small hubcaps with decorative rings.

Hub caps are generally an issue that should not be underestimated for classic cars. Minor changes to the bodywork are usually only noticed by the TÜV and specialists, just like changes to the interior. However, if the vehicle is on the wrong wheels with hubcaps that do not match the model, even a layman interested in classic cars can see that something is wrong. No matter how well-maintained the vehicle may be, in absolutely perfect condition – if the tires don’t match, the whole good impression is destroyed.

In contrast to many other classic cars from this period, the use of original hubcaps on the 190 SL not only leads to a certain, but even to a noticeable increase in value. They restore the vehicle to the splendor of the past and perfect it.

There are a number of stores on the Internet that specialize in either restoring the hubcaps of classic cars to their original condition or selling restored hubcaps. Original models can also often be found at classic car fairs, at meetings and in fan clubs, some in need of restoration, others in very good condition. Smaller garages also often have treasures for classic cars in the back corners of their warehouses that the owners have long since forgotten – if you have the opportunity to browse here, you can sometimes find parts that were no longer available, from spare parts for the engine, brakes and lights to tires, rims and hubcaps.

The models 250S and 280S were well equipped and performed between 130 and 140 ps. Later on Mercedes improved its cars and released the SE-versions. They were featured with mechanical injection pumps.

Mercedes Braking System

Mercedes Braking Systems – Parts for the Classic Mercedes Benz

Mercedes Benz has been manufacturing cars for over one hundred years. During that time the company has been the innovator in many design changes and upgrades. Automobiles from Mercedes are now known as the best and safest around the world. As models progressed throughout the years Mercedes Benz has continued to be in the forefront of technology.

Of all the automotive systems that have been improved over the years probably none have advanced as much as the braking systems. Earliest cars had mechanical brakes that forced the cars to stop abruptly by causing the wheels to stop turning. While it was very effective in stopping the car, it was also dangerous and provided a rather severe ride. Therefore hydraulic systems were designed and introduced to allow vehicles to slow down while stopping more gradually and in a safer manner.

Mercedes Benz and other manufacturers introduced the first hydraulic braking systems in the early part of the twentieth century. By the mid-twenties cars with four- wheel hydraulic systems were appearing on the market. Mercedes Benz offered these braking systems as a safety feature on its touring cars around this time.

Mercedes Oldtimer braking systemsAs braking systems evolved over time, the number of parts increased greatly. Braking systems are pedal operated; however the pedal in the car really has no direct connection to the apparatus that causes the car to stop. Braking is accomplished when hydraulic fluid is pushed through tubes that connect the fluid reservoir to the shoes or calipers that operate the pads which create friction at each wheel and slow the car down.

Finding parts for old time Mercedes braking systems can be a challenge. The drums, rotors, calipers, drum shoes and hydraulic lines are all vital parts. Many parts are reproduced and others are only available in used or remanufactured parts. Restoration brake parts for Mercedes from the mid-forties through the seventies can be found in the catalogs of Mercedes Benz vintage cars of a German supplier offering new and used parts. A visit to their website; https://www.niemoeller.de/en/mercedes-benz-oldtimer-spare-parts/catalogs , will assist hobbyists and restorers in the search for classic braking parts.
