Obviously your classic rust free 300D/8 is worth restoring.

Agreed, but there are a few differences when installing an earlier interior into a later car.

Front door panels will have the vent window knob hole, and the profile of the top rail is different to allow for the deletion of the vent window on the 74 and up cars.

Tex/vinyl graining is different also.
