Sport or not?

Good evening to all, I need to clarify something about the bird I just picked up earlier this year, and if what I have read is correct, I think I have a great(er) car than I thought.

I have searched and come to the assumption that the 97 Bird I just bought is a sport model, even though I've seen nothing on the body (decals and such) to suggest that it is. It meets the criteria set forth in the tech articles, 16" wheels, sport brake package, rear spoiler and larger sway bar. I would like to confirm, for the sake of knowledge and pride in my vehicle, that she is indeed a sport through and through. A VIN decoder or something of the like?

If I am repeating a question from elsewhere I apologize, I just couldn't find a definitive answer in my findings.

Thanks!

Look for JJJJ or JJEE on the door sticker or core support tag. It sounds like a sport, 97's were more consistent with the spoiler and brakes than 96.

Sweet, JJJJ is on my tag. A true sport. I think this makes up for parting with my 93 5.0. Thanks for the ID help. Didn't want to claim it and later determine it was false.
