1969 280SE Convertible

Hello, I am new to the forum and have recently aquired a 1969 280 SE Convertible. I know very little about Mercedes models and their assorted designations.

A couple of questions if you please. In researching the 69 280 SE, I come across "Convertibles" and "Cabriolets" - what, if any, is the difference between the two? Also, I believe the SE designates "Sonder Einspritz" (Super Injected) - is that correct?

Lastly, looking for a good source for Service Manual and literature

Thank you in advance for any replies.

A cabriolet is a convertible, a convertible is a cabriolet. The SE is fuel injection.
