Cool real w30

Just bought 71 olds 442 w30? Wanting to make sure it's real. Non matching vin. on motor, but last 6 of vin# on trans. and a factory tag on right side with a OW and some other number can,t make out. Is frame-off restored 10 years ago, Viking blue, rally-pac dash, ram air w/breather, with standard console shift. Looks right but not sure. Thanks for any input.

The engine, could have expired? If the replacement engine used the original carb and distributor, those have part numbers that can be identified. Fender braces for big blocks. IIRC that the 71-72's had a metal in line fuel filter between carb and pump.
