Read Plez Help! Dmv Says Must Smog 77' Ford Ranger Xlt F-250 69' Motor

HEY Y'ALL, MY NAME IS TINA. IM FROM SAN DIEGO,CA
MY FRIEND JUST BOUGHT A 77' F-250 FORD RANGER XLT TRUCK. IT HAD A [B]77' 400 CU. IN. MOTOR,SWAPPED IT OUT 4 A 69' 390 CU.IN. MOTOR. HE TRIED 2 REGISTER IT AND TRANSFER OWNERSHIP.THE DMV REQUIRED HIM TO GET IT SMOGGED FIRST. NOW THE PREVIOUS OWNER TOOK IT 2 GET SMOGGED. IN 96,'THE IDIOT WHO SMOGGED IT DECLARED IT 2 BE A 77' MOTOR. IT DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY.THE DOOR TAG SAYS IT IS A 69' 390 CU.IN. MOTOR. IT HAS BEEN DECLARED BY A CERTIFIED CALIFORNIA REFEREE. THE BUREAU OF CALIFORNIA AUTOMOTIVE REPAIR DECLARED IT TO BE 69'. I WAS TOLD THE LAW STATES 73' OR OLDER DOES NOT REQUIRE SMOG CERTIF. IS THAT TRUE?? DOES ANYONE TRULY KNOW THE ANSWER?? IF THIS IS SO HOW DOES HE GO ABOUT GETTING HIS TRUCK REGISTERED AND SMOGGED. IF IT IS A 69' LIKE THE DOOR TAG SAYS HOW WILL THAT WORK?? THE VIN# AND LICENSE# ALL MATCH FOR 69'. CAN ANYONE PLEZ HELP WITH THIS DIFFICULT DILEMA THAT THE DMV HAS ONCE AGAIN MANAGED TO GET ALL SCREWED UP FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO TRY TO MAKE ANY SENSE OUT OF IT. CAN WE ??? PLEZ ANYONE RESPOND A.S.A.P. DESPERATE THANX, TINA
