Question Who has 115 tail lights?

My 1976 300D (115.114 body style) needs tail lights.

I can find bulbs and lens but nobody seams to have the actual housing or receptacle that you put the bulbs into. Where can I look for a pair?

Thanks!

Anyone know if the earlier lenses will fit on the later model housings?
I don't remember the year split, but I know '73+ had the ribbed lenses and '71 had smooth lenses. I'd like to get the earlier lenses put on my '75.

I'm actually parting out a '73 280c. Although I'm not certain, I think they would fit on your car. PM me.

I do not believe the lenses are interchangeable.

The lenses are NOT interchangable.. BUT, I've heard you can replace the WHOLE assembly.. Meaning both the housing, electric coupling etc, and of course the lenses..
You can see that the 74+ has no chrome ...
(I havn't tried this myself.. But rumor has it, that it is possible.)

That sounds right to me.
