The only way to know the history of a car this old is with service records (provided by owner)...in other words, no.

Look for stampings on the engine and try googling it. If you believe it isn't the original engine, you shouldn't believe those are the original miles either. You can google or wiki your model and let you know what options were available for the engine...keep in mind what country you are in versus the information and what information it is for. My 4.5 was a US only option.
