Quoting Jackbr (Thread starter): Did the earlier 727-200s delivered to Ansett around 1972 have the original 60s cabin with open overheads etc, or the 70s "widebody look"?
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.
