Post Hi...need advice for 2.5-16v

I'm in Bangkok, Thailand and I've found this fairly good condition 2.5-16v model year 1990 imported from United Kingdom and would like to check on the history (as well as authenticity) of this car. It's VIN is 2010242A019365. Is there a place where I can get this VIN checked out to see whether it is really a 2.5-16v? I've also taken down its engine # 10299020002817 and attached some photos for your reference.

The exterior seems to be in very good condition while the interior does reflect its age and lack of care from the previous owner. Probably will need to spend some time & $$$ to restore.

Appreciate any comments or advice you can provide!
