Post W116 in Cape Town, South Africa

I just recently purchased a 1974 280 S (W116), Carnelian red with pale cream interior. The car is in beautiful condition both inside and out and seems, so far, to be mechanically sound too.
The one thing the car is missing is it's owner's manual. If anyone know where I could possibly download a copy I would be most grateful. Otherwise some pointers on how to operate the ventilation system (no AC) would be appreciated.
