Headlights and which models

Hello I am new to mercedes benz and trying to learn.
I have looked at several late 60 early 70 models and can't figure out why (or who) some have one headlight per side and others have two headlights.
Are the single headlights the base model?
Are the dual headlights an upgrade model and if so which ones?

Also which models came with vinyl interior and which with leather?

Thank in advance for such a simple questions but I am wondering??

There is no magic answer, some models had a large single sealed beam, some had two small ones. That's it.

Vinyl/leather was just an option, one among many.
