It has hide-away headlights, it's an R/S,maybe, could have been installed. Does the brake pad say disc brake on it? big blocks should have came with disc brakes. Are you're back-up lights in you're taillight housing or are they under you're bumper in the rear valance panel.If its an R/S your tail lights will be red in both sections of your housing and the back up lights will be located below your bumper. your gas cap should say S/S or R/S on it. IT'S going to be hard to tell if it is an original or not ,but these are just a couple of ways to tell. Post a couple pics of these areas.If my memory serves me right, the steering wheel shouldn't have a large R/S on it, it should be fairly small.

This site has alot of good info:

Unfortunately, the VIN & Trim codes won't be too helpful. You could also decode the rear end- if it's still original.

Well it looks like an rs, What got me was the front seat it looks like it has the right pattern and if it's stock, it is a pretty rare seat, that is a bench seat isn't it? Your steering wheel isn't stock, your back up lights are where they should be, looks like youv'e got and an R/S - S/S big block 4spd car.
