Post New member Vintage section with some questions about his MB 450 SLC 1977

Greetings from Mexico. I am a new member. I just got a 1977 MB 450 SLC. It is in good conditions, but it will need some repairs and restoration. I have many doubts that I hope will be solved through the time with your help.
This are some of the questions I have:

Could some one explain to me why there are SLC models with rounded and square lights in the same year? Is a model difference? or a version? (such as classic, elegance and avantgarde in my C280?).

What kind of radios had this cars originally?
Is there a service manual available in the internet?

Attached I am sending a couple of pics. All the best!

Round lights = U.S. version, square lights = European version

That car should have been originally equipped with a Becker Mexico AM/FM/Cassette.
