El Tigre 1977 Engines

Need some clarifications,

I'm looking at an El Tigre 77 for sale, and I'm wondering was there a real difference between a standard 440 engine and the El Tigre 440? I'm pretty sure this sled has a standard 440 engine as it is fan cooled (pretty sure el tigre's were not) has only one carberuator? Can you convert a standard 440 engine to the specs of the El Tigre? Any help would be appreciated thanks.
