Welcome to the Team Marc!

No it should be coded onto your trim tag that is riveted to the fire wall. A SS car will have SPORT stamped on it unless it was an original 409 SS in which case it will be stamped with the letters SSK.

Marc,
Very few plants printed the word "SPORT" on their tags. The only sure way to tell is by the TRIM code. The interior trim code will denote bucket seats if it was originally an SS. Bucket seats were not a separate option. They only came on SuperSports.

and if you had bucket seats it could still have the automatic on the column and still be an SS
