Is my truck a real Macho power wagon? It looks to be the original paint(sunrise orange) but it does not have the procedure code px9 on the radiator support tag. Also the tailgate has a design I have never seen before.

someone spent a lot of time making it look like one....no secondary paint color, or macho paint procedure on the core tag... not a real one...

Here are more pictures.
Yes, it seems like that would have taken a lot of effort.
The graphics look accurate and are in all the correct places.
Also it has holes for a roll bar.
Is there any possibility that it could still be a real macho despite not having the second paint color and procedure code?

Those holes for the roll bar look too small, and should have four holes in the bed.

Agree on the holes...are there holes on the wheel wells for the rear roll bar mounts?

Also (not that they couldn't have been changed somewhere along the way), the chrome bumpers are wrong for a Macho as well.

Yes, there are holes on the wheel well, but they are located on the top of the wheel well. Which I believe is wrong as well. The holes are supposed to be on the front of the wheel well right?

You are correct, the factory bar mounted to the front edge of the wheel wells not on top.
