I would not call the Hemi car a clone if it is an original 300-Hurst car, it is still a genuine 300-Hurst car.
The fact that a dealer swapped the engine doesn't change anything, I would want documentation of that and restore the car that way! Without the documentation there is no proof that you didn't do it yourself recently.
Heck, even if it was a day two owner mod with documentation I'd restore it that way.
The dealer-swap anecdote has been around OK since the late '70s, so I'd bet money it happened when the car was new.
