Fintail W110 differences between 1965 and 1966

Hi everyone, I have a 66 fintail 200d. I found a guy with some parts that I may need and I would really like to know some differences in parts. If the parts will fit but not be correct, I wouldn't mind knowing that too. Whatever information you may have about ANY part of the car will be great. But for now, these are the parts in question

back seat
headlight bezel rings
front parking lights

Like I mentioned above, if you know that a certain trim piece is different, please let me know for future reference. Thanks guys

Check out this website and this page in particular to get your answers.

The 200, 200D, 230 and 230S models

In answer to your specific questions, the back seat will fit but may not have the center arm rest, the headlight bezel will be the same, the parking lights will look the same, but may not be wired the same (older 110s had the turn signal on the upper fender), and the doors will fit but may have different cards and/or door handles and/or map pockets.

The later (post '65) w110s also had differently-shaped tail light assemblies, rear panel chrome trim, C pillar vent chrome, and as time went on they eventually got collapsible steering columns, emergency flashers on the dash, and modern door handles.

1981 300TD--310k miles
1970 280sel--172k miles
1966 230--162k miles
