Scott, the tank sticker would certainly clarify the sidepipe option.

----One of the best ways of telling weather a Corvette came with sidepipes is to check the area directly in front of the rear wheel in the wheel well. The tab at the bottom has a half round slice taken out of it. Find a car that did have sidepipes from the factory and you will see what I'm referring to. That cut is almost never cut correctly by guys adding sidepipes.....Bill S

You can look for treads in the holes were they would fastened the ground straps to the transmission cross member. Also look for staple holes were the weatherstrip would have been fastened on the front fender lower rear mud shield. If it has the treads or the holes it didn't leave the factory with side pipes.
