Post New Owner Older Car

Hi All,
I just bought a 1981 380se built in Germany. This car was imported to the U.S. in the early 80's I am the 3rd owner of this car.
I live in a town called Ballard in Utah and the closest large city is 3 hours away.
I have found that looking for parts online that the 380se is not listed for 1981. can someone help me identify what year and model I should be searching for? I know the car chassis is a 126, but my car has some differences, namely dials for heat and AC controls, hand cranks on the windows(which I need to remove to replace and I am unsure how to remove them and do not want to destroy the parts).
I will have other questions that I am sure you as MB owners can help with and I look forward to trading posts with you.
