I know all about the BYP RPO. You have a Black Chev Sport, and yeah it had the bowties and 'sport' on the box. 'Sport = grey; bowtie = red' and be careful for the color as there are actually two variants. The black trucks had a different shade than the white / red. 93-up Sports just said 'Sport' or 'Sport 4x4' stylized on the side. 89-90 4X4 sports had gigantic bowties with 4x4 plastered on the box.

The '350SS' nameplates on your doors are fake. They look nice but they have been changed out. They can be changed out to anything. That truck had little bowties with '1500' on the doors originally.
The BYP RPO has zero do do with the mythical '350 SS'. All Chev sport trucks had the RPO.

Not trying to be a dick or anything but if you want to make it original the markings are wrong. The 'special side moldings' in the description just refers to the red stripes in them that were only on Sports and nothing else. 454SS's had plain black.
Also your center caps are not correct either. those are ones from a normal silverado / yours should be chrome with black centers and little red bowties.
