The statistics questions look pretty hairy on the old A level papers. The O level stuff is pretty interesting, rather a lot of geometry. That 2000 is old now is a scary thought

This looks like it could distract me unnecessarily for a while! Good to see matrices and logarithms in those old O level papers - a reflection of how low expectations are set these days!

Do you know if anyone has archived, or is likely to archive, any of the old SMP modern maths syllabus papers from the 1970s or 1980s for comparison?

Log tables for question 1i on the 1957 A level paper.

I'm slightly surprised that I can still use them.

SMP recently disbanded so I suspect you will never find them. However, I understand some past papers are held in the British Library ...
