10 bolt rear differential cover?  All SS's came with 14 bolt rear axles.  But that isnt to say it hasn't been changed at some point.  The VIN has the 'N' so that is a good sign.

I saw the craigslist ad for the truck. Other than the seats & rear the only thing inconsistent with a '90 454SS is the center caps which are the '92-'93 type.
I see it was a dealer selling the truck. Did you get a Carfax report? My "guess" is it is a stolen recovery & they replaced the missing parts with ones most available .... but it's just a guess. Good luck & welcome aboard.

yes it was a true ss, my friend who owns it was disgusted in it when i showed him it was a theft recovery. they took the motor, trans, seats and rear end and glove box that had all the rpo codes.
