What about a possible 1974+ [W114]?

eLMeR wrote Or [W114], which can apparently be used as default MY.
1974+ for sure, with these mirrors.

cl82 wrote I think 130rapid is correct as it doesn't have the "double bumpers".

@ cl82 & 130rapid: there were no double front bumper on the 1974+ W114 models, so we certainly should better give this car a default W114 identification...

We've same problem with Skoda 105 or 120 [Typ 742] indentification: only the rear badge and... oilpan (if visible) gives the answer.
That is why we are following 'choose the lowest version as possible' rule, when we can't recognize exact version. Because statistics. Mercedes made over 626,000 1974+ W115s and over 109,000 W114s. Yes, it isn't perfect rule.

There's one element which is inidicating the 280/280E [W114], visible on your yellow sample: deeply wraparound rear bumper.

78 liter fuel tank. They didn't worry about weight then.

You have doubts... very well! It progresses the site! Let's do it. :sun:
I'm looking for perfect W114/W115 samples and just found some detail.

Compare (US 1974+ samples) 240D & 280. The 280 door rims have extra 'jewellery'.

I'm Ok with this (I asked for it or for the use of generic names in a lot of similar cases ;) ), as far as we all act the same way. I proposed the W114 solution a I thought it was the one that was already used :)
So "W115 as default" is the official IMCDb rule about the unrecognizable W114 / W115 cars?

Thanks for this and for the window trim tip.

About the US cars pictures you linked, here is a picture from the 1974 Dutch/Flemish W115 Diesel brochure, to compare with the W114 proposed above:

(Where one can see the non-deeply wraparound rear bumper and the lack of window trim in European models too ;) )
