Exclamation 300SD Engine Swap

I currently have a 1983 300SD with a perfectly running motor but a horrible body on it.

I found a (what the owner claims to be) a 77 300SD without a motor, but amazing interior and a body with only a small amount of rust.

Will the motor from the 83 fit in the 77 without any adjustments?

They are both 300SD but I believe the 77 is a different body style than that of the W126 on the 83.

Any help?
