Did the earlier 727-200s delivered to Ansett around 1972 have the original 60s cabin with open overheads etc, or the 70s "widebody look"?

I thought the locking overhead bins came in with the 727-200 ADV


Where's the passion gone out of the airline industry? The smell of jetfuel and the romance of taking a flight....

I know the Mexicana 727-200s delivered in 1970 had the "Wide Body" look, with the smaller pull down overhead bins. The birds delivered from 1979 onwards had the newer larger bins.

Ansett's early 727-200s were the advanced model and according to Boeing (website excerpt below) they should have had the new "Widebody"-look interior.

Structural improvements, a more powerful engine and greater fuel capacity led to the Advanced 727-200 in May 1971. This advanced series had improved payload/range capability, better runway performance and a completely restyled "widebody look" as standard equipment.

Yes they did. I flew on them in the mid/late 70s.
