It gets fuzzy on the earlier cars because I have been told that there was a lot of unique customization. You can just look at the variety of center consoles on legit early cars and see differences.

However, I have been led to believe and will take this as gospel until someone proves it wrong that all factory cars had the jack extensions welded to the boxed rockers so that the factory jack points could still be used.

When you look at Rose's car from Ireland you can see the jack plug as well as a bumper that looks much more like a 935 and something that the factory might produce.

So no plug in the rocker and it's not factory.....At least that's the first discriminator for me....
I agree with kilodawg that this slant appears to be a kit add-on. Not that's a bad thing, necessarily. The other thing is the gravel shields on the rear flares. Factory never did that. The black rubber molding on the front valance does not make it look factory either.
