I think one of the 1974s had a right side mirror (the bulky remote mirrors like the later W116s have).

I am thinking the early ones had a more narrow front clip and used a more narrow radiator/oil cooler. Probably starting with the 1973 model year--isn't this when they went from the W114 to the W115 body style?

I think the width of the radiator/oil cooler from the 1969 220 Diesel I measured was 57cm, so there would have been enough room to fit it in the 60cm gap of my fintail and with the sheet metal "adapters" from the 220D installed on each side of it.
