Coupe or Hardtop?
In 1965, Pontiac produced 8,319 coupes, 55,722 hardtops and 11,311 convertibles. I thought my post-less two door GTO was a coupe, now I wonder if it is really the hardtop ( since they were more popular). I tried a VIN decoder site, but it was no help. I thought it might be a dont care situation for most parts, but some part manuals make a distinction in some cases between the coupe and the hardtop.
(I have narrowed the field by eliminating convertibles from the discussion; mine is definitely not a convertible.)
In the Ames catalogue, I was looking for window glass channel weatherstripping. Coupe, Convertible and 2 door sedan; all have different part numbers.
I believe 2 door sedan is just another way of referencing the hardtop.
What is the difference between the coupe and the hardtop? How do I know, which one I have?
