Questions about my car...

Is the 123 chassis and body the same as the chassis and body on the 220-D?
They look like the only difference is the lights? and Small things like the seats, steering wheel , Bumpers ect...

I would like to know because Im gonna be buying some parts and need to know.

If anybody can point me in the correct direction that would be great!

Im looking for
Black 71 200d Door panels
Sunroof seal
Rear window seal
Carpet kit
And other small pidly things for getting the car looking Fantabulous!

Thanks SOOO Much! And sorry for all the Questions I just started working on Old Mercedes! Man Are they awesome cars!

NOT the same chassis. I believe its listed as a 115? I dont think any body related parts are interchangable

Mercedes uses the same model number over different chassis. If you can get the first 6 letters off the vin that will tell us the chassis.

Looking at the CD it does not look like they made a 220 in a 123 chassis though. are you sure it's a 220? they did make a 230...

As carnut1 said, a '71 220D is a W115 chassis, not a W123.
