Differences between w114 and w115?

The only thing ive noticed thats different from the w114 and w115 is that the w114 has different tail lights and different mirrors plus the little second windows on the front doors. Why did they bother making both if its basically the same body?

They are identical in virtually every way, including mirrors and tallights. The differences you note are only about model year.

My understanding is that 114 is 6cyl cars and 115 is 4cyl cars. dont know where the 300D fits in.
Other differences are model specific.

'76 - 300D
'72 - 240D (noddy)
'40 Chev pickup
