RE: who has a 114 here??
I wrote earlier:
"10 = manual transm., floor shifter, steering wheel left."
Oops, remove that floor shifter from my list, it's determined by SA-code.
Straight (and poor [:D]) translation from Finnish "Mersuforum" (I'm NOT writing the whole topic here, only the main things how to identify the series from each other):
***Serie 0,5 (12/67)
*Three horizontal stripes at door panels (inside car)
*Also a stripe at 45 degrees (front part of front doors)
***Serie 1,0 (8/1969)
*Door panels with two horizontal stripes, between stripes is "leather texture"
*co-drivers mirror from door to front wing
***Serie 1,5 (4/1972)
*New interior materials, some little changes
*Door panels have "hole pattern"
***Serie 2 (8/1973):
*Looks completely different
*Wide front grille
*Lower front wings
*Rear lights (older are flat, newer are "MB-style")
*Wider trunk lid handle
*"Water channels" at the sides of windshield
*Reg. plate at front bumper
*No triangle shaped front side-windows
*New mirrors ("123-look") co-driver side mirror from front wing to bumper. Mirrors are controlled from inside.
