Dumb luck, 220S info

Hello All,
I recently lucked into 3 1959 220S that need a little "TLC". The previous owner parked the cars 5 years ago in storage with hopes of getting to them some day. That day never came, so I am ready to take a stab at them. Two of the cars are viable while the third could be considered a parts car. My goal is to restore at least one and perhaps make a daily driver out of the lesser of the two. The reason for my post is to find resources about the history of the car as well as any maintenance and repair documents. Are there any clubs or websites dedicated to this model? This is going to be a long process but one I look forward to, so please, any thoughts are welcomed.

P.S. I will post pictures next week after I pick up the cars for thoses interested.
