No such thing from Lincoln. Possibly some dealer add on.

LS "Super Sport"

Here is an old thread about it. Not much more than a badge and body kit.
Thanks for the Thread ...it must have been a dealer thing...the guy brought the car from New York back in 2003 when he bought it and it's been stored every winter in MN it will be worth checking this out tomorrow...hoping to make a deal

How to add $2000 of mods and sell it for $5000 markup as a dealer. Sometimes, it works out like the 1970 Mach 1 Twister. Usually, it's just short term BS like the above. It's only special if you want a preinstalled Razzi kit and little league trophy plaques

Of all things though, they pulled a Chevy moniker. Not GT? Not R? Not 500? Sure, the trim was already a Sport, but you wouldn't expect to see an Impala Cobra or Charger GT500

Oddly enough, when I took of my grille to paint it, I noticed molded into the plastic as part of the part number and description it actually says 'super sport'. The car doesn't have any of the dealer nonsense. Maybe just a style for the grille and a coincidence, but I thought it was interesting.

Sorry for the delay, life is hectic lately. Here's a photo (inside, passenger side).

Edit: Weird, I see the thumbnail from imgur wasn't showing up anymore; I'll embed it below. This is the inside of the grille. I'll try and grab a picture or two of the painted side and upload later. Though she's a bit dirty from the rain and leaves lately...

No such thing. It was a limited run of a deal on the east coast. They used the Razzi side skirts and rear valance to get the look. NO PERFORMANCE UPGRADES!!!! The cheap dash plague.

Just the regular vertical bar grille. Don't have a picture before, but the grey color didn't really go well with the black, so I sprayed it when I refinished the headlamps, fog lamps and Lincoln emblem. Approx 3-4 coats flat black, ~4 coats satin clear. Matches the car much better now.

On the ls "ss" does the radio come with the wood grain center console? The ls's I have seen didnt have all wood center like the ls in these pics.

That's an aftermarket peel-n-stick add on.
The "SS" thing was just a dealer add on, not factory. The factory tried to keep the dealers from doing crap like that.

Your LS looks mighty fine in that pic. The paint on the bumber looks nice and shiny black. My bumber has a few chips in it from bugs being washed off.

I am new to lvc, and I actually bought this car. It is my second car, never owned a lincoln before. I live in Minnesota, and when it gets cold, my car does not like to heat. The air it blows is warm, rather than hot, even after a 45 min drive. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
