I don't have a 1974 price list but I do have several later ones, one note is that price increase is quite dramatic over just a few years maybe aiding British Seagull's demise.

These prices sit across a period of very high inflation with interest rates at all time high so I suspect the price increases across the range are keeping in step.

Your right but with the national average income in 1980 of £5725.00 PA, £110.10 PW, a model 75 costs less than 2 weeks wages.
That's way way cheaper than 1950!
Make it idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot.
