They were cheaper than our special order higher spec trim level.   It reflects
more on the greed of the importers (Lonrho ISTR) and the government taxation
dept.     ;-)

No offence taken - things almost always cost less in the USA than here.  At the
recent classic car show there were several stalls selling self-darkening welding
masks like the one I got from Harbor Freight for up to twice the price I paid.
Maybe the $ price is more now, though.

The sill mouldings seem to be 311---557A (left) and 558A (right) for the higher
trim spec (no mention of any years) and for the lower trim spec both sides
315---557 from chassis 221,975 through '67 and 315---557A '68-on.  I've not got
any '73 updates so don't know what might be different
