1976 240d Bumper Swap?

Hello all,
I am newbie to the world of Mercedes cars but not the car world. But I have a question. I have recently purchased a 1976 240d. It is a great little car, but those huge american bumpers I have aren't cutting it in the looks department. My question is: Did the Euro version come with smaller bumpers that could fit on my car? Or can an older model's smaller bumpers be made to fit on a 76 with out much modification. I have expierence in modifying cars and trucks, but I don't want to cut the old girl up too much. I am looking for something like the 74 240's small bumpers.

I have done my googling and I am struggling trying to find out some info. So if someone could point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.

Bumpers from a pre-1974 w114/w115 chassis would fit on your car.
