Try posting your question in the R107 forum. You'll get an answer there, I'm sure.

The top itself will fit, the defroster plug may be different, but that's not that big a deal.

Looks like you can ignore ^^ that post. LOL.

In case you are seeking te right color hard top, there's a UT and OT color on the data plate. Many of the early 107's had different colors for top and body.

My dream car is a classic sporty five speed (stick+overdrive) convertible that seats five. If, you want 70's-80's Mercedes tuner wheels, let me know.

Hubcaps will need to match the top if it is a two tone.
