according to the spreadsheet these ashtrays were standard up to end 1970 when they were replaced by fusebox in 2S/130

Not quite, the +2S style dash with the central ashtray and four warning lights continued for the first year or so of the S/130 production
The change in dash came with a complete revision of the electrical system from chassis 0732L onwards. As well as the dash layout, the under-bonnet relays and fuses were deleted/repositioned.

A small thing but "Exhaust does 2no x 90 degree turns at rear" - should be a No for both federal bodied US and non US Cars - eg everything after no. 857 (US) 929 (everywhere else)
