68-72 should be what you need. If your car is a Euro model , you may or may not have side marker lights. Most US cars cars do as it was a requirement in 1968 and therefore, if you don't you will need to fill the hole in the fender.

With best regards

I have attached two photos of my car to show you why I am looking at replacing the front fender. A previous owner hit a dear and pushed the headlight assembly into the fender by about an inch. I think my car is the European model, but is there an easy way to tell?

I will need to replace the left fender, so I am trying to learn what options I have available. Sounds like a 1968-1971 W114 would meet my needs.

Any U.S. W114/W115 vehicle up to 1973 is a perfect match.

Not to bump an old thread but here goes...

Are seat belts interchangeable between W114 sedans/W115 sedans?

My 1972 (Prod: 8/71) 220 Gas sedan has non-reel type lap and shoulder belts in the front with the rear having only lap belts.

I would like to upgrade/swap to the later style inertia reel type seat belts. I saw them in a W115 240D so I know they exist, but I cannot find them in the EPC?

I have read varying opinions on the seat belt mounts being done from factory to accept any combination of seat belts so it should be a straight forward swap...but can anyone confirm?
