Apparently, the cars of the 1967 first series were equipped with steps along the entire door width, while the following were equipped with narrow steps to the right of these doors.

Regarding the first rectilinear and horizontal stamped stiffening, then in the form of a St Andrew’s cross, it seems that the transition from one form to the other happened during the first series.
