The movement model is obviously not a 218.

I would say a conversion. 

Dealers would often convert Spaceviews while the customer waited, back in the day. It depends on the model, of course, and there was a limited supply of certain Spaceview crystals. Generally though, there was a lot of this going on then, as now.

I don't know much about these yet but that looks like a match to me.
