Is this a stock alternator?

I hate to post yet another alternator question, but looking through a bunch of threads & pictures I'm still not 100%. It looks similar to some others I've seen but none of them have been exact and I can't find any markings on it to indicate a brand or part number or anything.

It is an original alternator. According to a 1971 Parts Catalog, it's a Mitsubishi brand. It was probably the first alternator fitted after they switched from a generator to an alternator.

It's only 30A.

Thanks. Since it was still using the external regulator I was 99.9% certain, but I wanted to know for a fact before diving into the 1 wire conversion.

My “68-sold-as-69” came stock with that alternator. It is made by Mitsubishi, and works great.
