It runs into the wall and down to the crawlspace it looks like it is heading back to the panel.

UPDATE: I looked closely and opened the junction box today. There are three separate insulated cables coming out of a metal conduit, wired to hot, hot, neutral on the existing 10-30R. The box also contains a green wire tied to the box that measures no more than ~1.5 Ohm to the neutral on the 10-30R. So, I think this means I can install a NEMA 6-30 or 14-30 (my device is 240V only) and just pigtail some green copper from the new sockets ground to the same screw on the box the existing green covered copper is now, right?

Thanks for the details. There are several EVSEs that come with 14-30 or 14-50 plugs. My planned installation complies with all the requirements from 625.44 that you quoted. If I find or can add a ground, my plan is to swap the 10-30R for a 14-30R (existing circuit breaker is 30A), use a 3-6ft power cord, and set the EVSE for 24A. I want the plug because I plan to take the EVSE with me sometimes (family has a 14-30R on a dedicated circuit I can borrow while I am there)

Thanks for the detailed reply. It is exactly what I was looking for, especially the what the resistance on a DMM should look like between neutral and ground. I'll flip the breaker, verify with a NCVD, and then check with my DMM.

Ahh, sorry. I wondered about that but wasn't sure.
