The VIN on the dash will tell you, assuming it hasn't been swapped. Norwood build plates also say on the cowl plates. The vin on the door decal will also say, if still legible.

All trans am cars will have a letter of the vin number indicating it's a trans am. The place in the vin number sequence depends on the year.

For 67-71 2nd digit of vin will be V

72-80 2nd digit of vin will be V, W, or X

81-83 5th digit of vin is V, W, or X

84-87 5th digit of vin is W, or X

88-02 5th digit of vin is W

If car's vin doesn't have the correct letter, it didn't leave factory as a trans am.
