Marc Shiliro's Classic Cars
You're looking at another beautiful classic car listed by MS CLASSIC CARS!
1962 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL - One of the best.
Hello, I’m Marc Schiliro the owner of MS CLASSIC CARS.  You might recognize my name or my business name from beautiful classic cars, trucks and motorcycles I’ve collected and sold nationally.  I’ve got over 20 years of classic vehicle experience.  I’d like to put that experience to work for you.  I’ve learned a lot and I’m educated in many different makes and models ranging from the early 1900’s to current.  Over the years I’ve collected and sold over 400 classic vehicles which I’m very proud of.  I sell a large percentage of my inventory from networking and from the various websites I advertise on.  I sell a small percentage of my inventory at various auctions such as Barrett Jackson.  I’ve set over 15 world record prices on various makes and models.  I’ve also featured many classic vehicles at different auctions across the United States. I’ve had many vehicles that have been featured in multiple magazines and multiple websites.  I specialize in beautiful classic vehicles that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I collect classic vehicles that are already completed and slightly redesign them, service them and detail them. I have also coordinated restorations from start to finish.
 
The MS CLASSIC CARS showroom is located in Seekonk, Massachusetts and was established in 2012.  The MS CLASSIC CARS service department and multiple storage facilities are also located in Seekonk, Massachusetts.  The MS CLASSIC CARS operations are closed to the public.  A private viewing of a vehicle can be made scheduled by appointment Monday through Friday.  The MS CLASSIC CARS inventory consists of roughly 40 classic cars and trucks that we own, service and detail.  We’re one of the only dealerships who document the service work we do to every vehicle with an invoice.  Each vehicle is presented with detailed descriptions and multiple photos.  We offer no consignment inventory.  When you call you deal directly with me. I know each vehicle well and will go over the vehicle of your interest in full detail.  I’ll also assist you with any other needs such as trades, financing, insurance or shipping.  I promise to make the process from start to finish easy and enjoyable.  I take a lot of pride in my business and my reputation reflects that.  I appreciate the opportunity to earn your business.  “MS CLASSIC CARS isn’t just another dealer.  MS CLASSIC CARS is a brand.”

I've been collecting classic cars and trucks for over 15 years now and have seen a lot happen. I've seen the hobby continue to grow not only on the internet and auctions but also with the amount of television shows, magazines and websites that are related to classic cars in some form or another. I strongly believe the classic car market is a great place to invest in. When the economy is strong, the classic car market is extremely strong. When the economy isn't so strong the classic car market holds its own. I've sold classic cars and trucks in both economic conditions. The reason classic cars make such a great investment is because people are crazy about cars, especially classic cars.  These people aren’t just one age group but all different ages ranging from very young to very old.  It’s a much diversified market.  I've learned it's not just people in the United States but its people all over the world.  Roughly 20% of my sales are from people who live outside of the United States.  Some examples would be Canada, Australia, Mexico and Europe.  Also from what I’ve learned roughly 20% of bidders at auctions are also  people who live outside the United States. 

  Over the years I've noticed that the higher quality classic cars have always commanded a higher price. Even people who don't have any classic car experience can recognize and appreciate attention to detail. Over the last 10 years the overall market has been very strong and I believe it will continue to grow.  Certain classic cars prices are on the rise and others are on the decline.  It’s all about supply and demand not about a good or bad economy.  The classic cars that are on the rise are the cars that a lot of people want but there aren’t many on the market for sale.  The classic cars that are on the decline are the cars that a lot of people don’t want anymore and there’s many on the market for sale. Of course, if the car is a rare model and spectacular it will command a higher price as I mentioned. Desirable factory correct classic cars that are documented with matching numbers always make solid investments.  Custom cars have remained strong because each car is different from the next one. They each have their own character and there worth what people are willing to pay.

  Prior to this business I was just a blue collar guy who was working full time selling new and used Mercedes Benz.  I was very passionate about classic cars and trucks so I decided to sell them part time.  Although I had my used car dealer’s license I didn’t have my own dealership.  Overall things were going just fine but my dream was to open my own classic car and truck dealership.  I decided to give up my full time job with health insurance and a 401K to open a new classic and truck dealership.  I had to invest a ton of money to make that happen which required using my family’s savings and acquiring loans such as a home equity line of credit.  I also now would have a lot of overhead that I didn’t have before.  The bottom line is I went all in.  Do you think I would’ve done all that if I didn’t think the classic car and truck market wasn’t going to remain strong?  “I’m putting my money where my mouth is”.

DARE TO COMPARE!


This fabulous 1962 Mercedes Benz 190 SL is a true European classic with amazing character. This car has been professionally restored to show quality standards throughout. The Mercedes Benz 190 SL is a two-door luxury roadster produced by Mercedes Benz between May 1955 and February 1963. A total of only 25,881 were built during the entire production run. It was first shown in a prototype at the 1954 New York Auto Show where it stole the hearts of many.

 This car was purchased in 2014 from a well-known Mercedes Benz enthusiast by Tom Gibson of Cross Roads Restorations. Tom would manage a meticulous nut and bolt concourse restoration performed by well-known Performance and Vintage Classicos. This company has restored multiple vehicles that have achieved prestigious Concours and AACA awards. This car was the perfect candidate for a restoration as it retained a ton of originality. A copy of its original build sheet verifies its original specifications and major components including that it was supplied as a U.S version in Red with a Black cloth top and Black leather upholstery. The build sheet also verifies it retains its original chassis, body and engine. As the restoration photos document this car was stripped to a bare shell and placed on a rotisserie. Countless hours were invested in the attention of detail for this labor of love. The restoration was done in accordance with original factory specifications and very effort was made to make sure it was done as correctly as possible. As a further testament mostly NOS and Mercedes Benz OEM parts were used throughout the restoration. The restoration was completed in 2016 and it has been driven 800 miles since completion.
 
The car retains all the original sheet metal. Only minor sheet metal work was required during the restoration. The body is very straight and it has great gap lines throughout. During the restoration it only made sense to paint the car the Mercedes Blue Code #DB335 which is simply gorgeous. This is a correct color for the year and suits this car perfectly. The paint is high quality throughout and has been detailed to a brilliant shine. The car sports a new Dark Blue convertible top which looks amazing in combination with the Mercedes Blue paint. Everything on the exterior has been restored or replaced such as the glass, trim, wipers, mirrors, door handles, bumpers, moldings, emblems and lights. The outside of the wheels are painted Blue to match the exterior and inside are painted Green which is correct. Mercedes Benz used paints left from WWII as demonstrated on the back of wheels and underside of body. The wheels are wrapped with new Vredestein Sprint Classic Whitewall radial tires which provide a comfortable ride. A set of B.F. Goodrich Silverstone Special 82S 6.40-13 Bias Ply Whitewall tires are included for judging purposes.

 During the restoration the decision was made to add a Parchment leather interior in the original pattern. This exterior color and interior color is a stunning seldom-seen color combination. The interior of this car is very luxurious and surprisingly spacious. Everything in the interior was restored or replaced such as the sun visors, dash, gauges, dash hardware, steering wheel, door panels, seats, shifter and carpeting. The sun visors were upgraded to smoked glass with chrome trim rather than leather. It has an eight day wind up clock and the gauges were rebuilt by well-known Palo Alto. Everything is in working order with exception of the radio which does light up. The trunk compartment has been nicely finished with a trunk mat, spare tire and tools.
 
The engine compartment is highly detailed with many correct parts throughout. The car is powered by the original matching numbers 1.9L Inline SOHC 4-cylinder engine that was rated with 105 HP from the factory. During the restoration the engine was completely rebuilt and runs excellent. The twin Solex carburetors were also rebuilt by specialist Will Samples of S&S Imports. A new wiring harness was supplied by Rhode Island Wiring. The car currently has a new black NAPA battery with no stickers. A factory correct battery that doesn’t work properly is included for judging purposes. The engine is coupled to a 4-speed manual transmission that’s believed to be original to the car. The transmission and rear end were both gone through during the restoration.

The undercarriage is also highly detailed throughout with many correct parts throughout. The underside of the body was finished in tan which is correct. This again was the paint Mercedes Benz had left over from WWII. Everything was restored or replaced such as the exhaust system, steering components, braking components, suspension components and fuel tank. An extra wheel trim ring, hub cap and car cover is included. This car is one of best and truly a masterpiece.

**PLEASE CALL MS CLASSIC CARS OWNER MARC SCHILIRO FOR A VERY ACCURATE VERBAL DESCRIPTION OF THIS VEHICLE**




Unfortunately most classic vehicles that are being advertised for sale by dealers, private parties and auctions aren't exactly what are being advertised for sale.  This is an industry with no real guidelines and everyone's opinion is completely different.  The average consumer doesn’t realize classic vehicles weren’t restored at the factory and are being restored by people in their garages.  Everyone’s level of restoration experience is different and it shows in the restoration.  An example would be a classic vehicle that's  being advertised as an original model with matching numbers could be a phony with a reproduction trim tag and re stamped numbers on the engine block, etc.  Another example would be a classic vehicle is being advertised as a full restoration when indeed only a few things have been restored.  There are many classic vehicles listed for sale that have cosmetic and mechanical issues with such items as the body, paint, glass, lights, body hinges, gauges, window components, steering components, upholstery, engine leaks and tuning, radiators, transmission, rear end, brake components and suspension components.  The consumers are spending thousands of dollars repairing the classic vehicles they've purchased after the sale.  A bad purchase could turn into the buyer’s worst nightmare and be extremely costly!

MS CLASSIC CARS specializes in beautiful classic cars and trucks that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I personally have selected these vehicles and take pride in what I represent.  I'm not a classic car dealer who is only looking to make a quick buck.  I’ve seen dealers and private parties purchase classic vehicles at auctions and online and immediately list them for sale.  Most of these vehicles aren’t being advertised correctly and haven’t been serviced or detailed.  This business is my career and reputation which means everything to me.  I do the best of my ability to represent quality classic cars and advertise them honestly.  To be clear I’m not in the restoration business.  I represent classic vehicles that have already been restored.

  This vehicle is owned by MS CLASSIC CARS and is located in Seekonk, MA.  I personally have seen, touched and driven this vehicle.  This vehicle has been through a service and detail process which is documented with an MS CLASSIC CARS invoice.  I write the descriptions, take the photos, advertise them for sale and answer all the calls and emails.  I'll personally go over the entire vehicle and tell you everything I know about it.  I'll also give you my opinion if it’s truly the right vehicle for you. I’ll consider all trades and also offer financing if necessary.   Once you've committed to purchase a classic vehicle from MS CLASSIC CARS, I’ll make it a very easy process from start to finish.  Once the funds have cleared I'll immediately mail the paperwork USPS 2-day air.  A CD with the description and photos of the vehicle you purchased will be included in the package.  I’ll also assist in shipping your vehicle to its new home.

         If you've read the introduction tab or visited my website you’ll probably agree I'm a bit of a perfectionist and represent very detailed classic vehicles. MS CLASSIC CARS has a great reputation and we continue to raise the bar in the classic car and truck world.  I sell our classic cars and trucks very quickly because consumers see the value.  I look forward to working with you.  Please read my website testimonials and eBay positive feedback.  Thank you for the opportunity!
