75s I think as they had the black centre consoles? but I Think 76 (which I deem early) I think moved to burl. ive asked for some more pics if possible to see if this is a car I had down a while back.

'76 was still Zebrano with black console, later full Zebrano. I think the changeover was '77.

If you look closely, the early cars also had the pleats running right back on the rear seat like the regular 450SEL and other versions.
