- 1969 was the first year of the "Federal" (speedo and tach in front of driver as in Mk.IV Spitfires) dashboard in the U.S.
- no letters T R I U M P H across bonnet or boot lid; bonnet will have a badge with the word SPITFIRE over the RAF bullseye emblem (a one-year badge), and boot will have a horizontal badge also with the word SPITFIRE (and another with MK.3 I think -- it's been a while)
- There should be at least holes for the proprietary LUCAS side marker lamp/reflector combination
- There should be a steering column lock/iginition switch much like later Mk.IV-on Spitfires
- on the right(?) rear inner quarter panel (visible inside trunk) there would be a squarish cutout that originally would have been filled with some sort of cannister for the fuel evaporative emissions setup.
- MOST 1970s would have come with the single Stromberg-equipped 1296cc engine
- 4.5 in. solid disks (same look as earlier Mk.3 wheels but 1 in. wider; same wheels as GT6+, 2000, later Vitesse, Herald courier van, etc.)
- Also, Commission and body numbers from 75001- .
