I would also suggest Milts book about his time with ROYAL;

Good information in those articles. Those stickers can be purchased on ebay. The 'official' placement was not on the windows. On the 64 GTOs they were affixed behind the rear side window on the sail panel side. On the '66 and others they're affixed to the front fenders between the bumper and wheel well. Without tearing apart the engine and examining the carb and distributor to verify parts, you won't know if it was bobcated although your car will have more 'umpf.'

The big question is there a unique set-up with different heads, gasket and or carb, ignition? IF Royal had done anything it would be obvious however one of those over the counter gasket kits came with decals and many where sold. Odds are the later but one never knows.
