Default passenger door mirror for 74 240d

on car parts . com I found a passenger door mirror for a 76 300d... would, it came up in the search for a 74 240d mirror... would this be the same fit/look? anybody know?

also... stupid question... but I never can remember... when describing the car 'side' - as in left/right mirror - do you determine the side you're looking for from being inside the car looking out the windshield so that left = driver and right = passenger? or is it from the outside front looking at the bumper so that left = passenger and right = driver?

k... makes sense then why there was only like seven for the right mirror and two pages for the left mirror - ideas on if the 76 300d mirror would fit the 74 240d and look the same?

They are two completely different chassis. Besides some engine and drivetrain components, very little carries over.
