The 1500 Spitfire was an evolution from the MkIV. 

The biggest improvement was in the seat frames. Recliner meachanisms were added and later an adjustable headrest.

The GT6 coarse grain vinyl was carried over into the 1500 but then changed

back to smooth on later models. Personally, I think the change is barely noticeable and was probably made to reduce production costs.

Part-cloth seats were added with a distinctive houndstooth pattern. Production costs were kept down by using the same foams as the vinyl covers.

 

Seats
The seats were developed over the life of the MkIV and 1500. Basically there are four types: Non-Reclining; Reclining; Reclining with adjustable headrest; High Back. The mounting points remained the same throughout production so many owners have fitted the later, more comfortable seats... luckily they are quite easy to identify.
