Voltage Reg mount holes on 69s are ~3/16" for 1/4" self tappers. 67-68s have ~3/8" holes for well-nuts.
67s never used side baffles for A/C, so they may not have the mounting holes for them. 68-69s did.

Thought the mtg. holes on the front side of the upper rail for a/c started in 69.  Little dimples were added along the top rail and have seen on 69's but not 67 or 68's. Service replacements have them. Do a search and you can find info on differences.

Yes, those dimples for the A/C weatherstripping are another.. Only in 69.
