Nice score!  Does it look like someone ground off the canti brake cable hanger that should be on the seat triangle gusset?
So, do you think blue was the original color?

I just picked up a spitfire -I think it's the same bike except mine is 7005 aluminum and the P51 would be 6061-T6.  Mine also does NOT have a brake gusset, but it has a solid plate -so I think mine also got shaved -or Powerlite made a change to true V-brakes mid model year.
