Welcome from NC. I'm sure someone can decode the trim tag #s. Here are 2 links with some info that may be of some help.

Nothing on the car (anywhere) will tell you if it was originally a super sport. To document that, you would need a build sheet (if one exists) or some sort of original dealer paperwork. I have read that the RPO codes can be on the protecto-plate, but I have never seen one with the codes. That was used for warranty and is usually long gone. Some however are still tucked in the owners manual. Bottom line, if they are advertising it as a SS and can't document it, don't pay extra.

Here's a good article on how to tell a real SS from a fake:
