body type designation?

Good day all.

Sometimes I translate delivery certificates ("Lieferschein") for classic Mercedes owners.

Often in the "Typ" section, I see something like Typ 180 JL, Typ 220 CA, etc.

Other letters that appear are D, Cp, D-JL, and S.

I know what Typ 180 (etc.) means. Does anyone know the meaning of those letters that follow?

A Google search on "Typ 180 JL" for example returns many books for sale in Germany, relating to options and fitments. Same for the other letter combinations.
