  • Coupe or Sedan

    Are Square, Bullet, or Flair Birds regarded as Coupes or Sedans?

    A sedan is four doors and a coup is two.

    Although technically a coupe uses the roof in its body structure, so the more correct term may be 'two door hardtop'.

      I agree, I would consider them as two door hardtops.

        When registering a vehicle here in Oz, they ask if Coupe or Sedan. I also thought that a 2 door was a Coupe & a 4 door was a Sedan. Now the tricky part. I looked up on the computer & asked the difference between the 2 & opened up a can of worms. It stated so much that it wasn't funny. Things like depending how many cubic feet in the back seating area & other things. More than anything else I was just wondering how you Guys class them there on your Rego Papers.

        Thank you

          Well, on my California Title for the 58 it's labeled a 2 door hardtop, or 2H, where my coupe is labeled as CP.

            Such is the stupidity of government. When I first registered a Bronco in 1990 New York State called it a wagon.

              I thought the difference between a two door coupe and a two door hardtop convertible was that a coupe has a pillar separating the front and back side windows whereas a hardtop has no pillar. As I recall at one time there were four door hardtop convertibles with no pillars.

                Howard I tend to agree with your analogy from my experience. Perhaps Mr. Tast can shed some light on this question?
