Marc Shiliro's Classic Cars
You're looking at another beautiful classic car listed by MS CLASSIC CARS!
1959 Mercedes-Benz 190SL
Hello, I’m Marc Schiliro the owner of MS CLASSIC CARS.  You might recognize my name or my business name from the beautiful classic cars, trucks and motorcycles I’ve collected and sold nationally.  I’ve got over 25 years of classic vehicle experience and continue to learn more every day. I’ve learned a lot and I’m educated in many different makes and models ranging from the early 1900’s to current. I specialize in beautiful classic vehicles that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I only collect number one and number two condition vehicles that are already completed. We slightly redesign them, service them and detail them. I have also coordinated restorations from start to finish but don’t do this anymore. Over the years I’ve collected and sold over 700 classic vehicles which can be seen on the company website sold page. The vehicles are sold to previous customers, referrals and are sold from advertising on various websites, online auctions and live auctions. We’ve featured many classic vehicles at different auctions across the United States. We’ve had many vehicles that have been featured in multiple magazines and multiple websites. I’m proud to say that MS CLASSIC CARS has accomplished some great things with our vehicles over the years. People recognize value in our vehicles and doing business with us. I consider myself to be an expert in the classic car business and would like to put my experience to work for you.

The MS CLASSIC CARS showroom is located in Seekonk, Massachusetts. This location 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 50 classic cars and trucks that we own, service and detail.  We’re the only dealership in the country that services every vehicle we sell and documents it with an invoice. I stand behind every vehicle we sell.  Each vehicle is presented with a detailed description, 150+ high quality photos and a video.  We don’t offer consignments.  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 enclosed shipping.  I promise to make the process from start to finish easy and enjoyable.  I take a lot of pride in this business and our 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.”

Marc Schiliro – The owner

I've been collecting classic cars and trucks for over 25 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 very diverse market.  I've learned it's not just people in the United States but its people all over the world. 

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 20 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 at Viti Mercedes Benz located in Tiverton, RI. They’re recognized for being one of the best Mercedes Benz dealerships in the country for customer service.  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 took on 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”. Thank you.

1959 Mercedes-Benz 190SL


“This 59 Mercedes-Benz 190SL is one of the best examples I’ve ever laid eyes on personally. It clearly was professionally restored with an open checkbook. I absolutely love the body design, color combination and attention to detail throughout. You rarely see these models restored to this level. This is a blue chip investment that would make a great addition to any collection. This is the definition of rolling artwork!” – Marc Schiliro

This phenomenal 1959 Mercedes-Benz 190SL is a wonderful example of a highly collectable European classic sports car. The 190SL is a two-door luxury roadster produced in Stuttgart, Germany between May 1955 and February 1963. A total of 25,881 units were sold over the eight year production run. This example was built in February making it one of only 2,378 early models built through July 1959. Copies of the Mercedes-Benz date card and build sheet on file show it originally left the factory with a Black exterior and red interior. It was equipped with left outside mirror, windshield washer, sealed beam headlights, Dunlop RS whitewall tires, and bumper over riders. An original set of California black plates that are included suggest this car was in the Golden State since the 1960’s. It’s believed to have resided for many years in California where it later formed part of The Blackhawk Collection. In 2009, it underwent a comprehensive and meticulous concours restoration. It was completed in 2013 and has only traveled 598 miles since completion. MS CLASSIC CARS purchased the car in March of 2023 and this is the first time we’ve offered it for sale.

The exterior of this beautifully designed classic automobile is simply stunning. During the refurbishment the body was taken to bare metal. Countless hours were invested in assuring the body was laser straight with precise gap lines throughout. The hood, doors and trunk lid close effortlessly. During the restoration process the decision was made to change the exterior color from black to the desirable color of Fire Engine Red. The paint quality is spectacular and was recently detailed to a high gloss shine. The paint work is comparable to something you’d see on the lawn at a prestigious Concours d’Elegance. The red paint is complemented with a new tan soft top that fits very nicely. When the top is down it’s covered with a tan boot cover that also fits very nicely. The front windshield and door glass was replaced new which makes visibility a breeze. Everything on the exterior was restored or replaced to high quality standards. Some of these trim pieces include the window trim, wipers, grill, headlight bezels, front bumper, parking lights, door handles, lower body molding, rear quarter molding and lower trim, rear tail light bezels and lenses, rear bumper, gas cap and emblems. It was outfitted with modern Wagner headlights for better visibility. It rides on factory-correct 13” red painted steel wheels with red painted star embossed center caps. The wheels are wrapped with properly sized American Classic 6.50-R13 whitewall tires. The interior is inviting with its freshly restored and spacious cabin. During the restoration the decision was made to change the interior color from red to tan especially with the red exterior. The color combination of red and tan is a match made in heaven. With equal attention paid to quality and details it looks like it rolled out of the factory. The striking paint and chrome laden dashboard is finely detailed with a mounted rear view mirror, crisp VDO instruments, a NOS ivory-colored two spoke steering wheel, ivory gear shift knob and Becker Europa radio. The dash, door panels, rear panel and low back bucket seats were upholstered in high grade quality tan leather. The new tan carpeting and floor mats add softness to the bottom of your feet. The trunk compartment was beautifully re-finished and painted high gloss black. It was outfitted with a factory-correct gray rubber mat and matching spare tire with tools.

The engine compartment is highly detailed with great attention to detail throughout. It was restored to a higher level than it was when it left the factory. Literally every single piece with gone through including nuts, bolts and fasteners. The firewall, inner fenders and radiator support was re-finished in high gloss black. All of the factory tags were replaced in the correct locations as seen. It’s powered by its original matching numbers 1.9L inline four cylinder as attested by the accompanying build sheet and data card that’s included. The engine was rebuilt during the restoration and runs excellent with the correct Solex PHH 44 carburetors. This engine was factory rated with 104 horsepower and 105 lb-ft of torque. The engine compartment is exquisitely detailed with proper decals, labels and restored yellow zinc-plated hardware. Ancillaries such as the black enameled air cleaner, plastic washer bottle and brake booster are highly detailed. The engine breathes through a new single exhaust system that has a sweet sound. The engine is coupled to a 4-speed manual transmission that shifts very smoothly.

The undercarriage is also highly detailed with great attention to detail throughout. The underside of the body was re-finished in a darker shade of gray. Everything was restored or replaced such as the fuel system and four wheel drum braking system. The four-wheel independent suspension incorporates unequal wishbones up front and a single-pivot swing axle at the rear with coil springs and shock absorbers all around. During the restoration process some of the parts were painted in various colors such as red, blue and yellow as seen.


***MS CLASSIC CARS only purchases number one and number two condition classic vehicles. We service and detail every vehicle unlike most classic vehicles that are currently being advertised for sale. MS CLASSIC CARS invested a total of $8,155.22 servicing and detailing this vehicle. This is documented with an invoice pictured below. We’re the only classic car dealership in the country that does this. Please understand every vehicle needs something. Some vehicles just need a lot more than others. At MS CLASSIC CARS we eliminate the surprises. We’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking. ***

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!
