Subject: Re: Coupe vs. sedan
My recollection is the same as Bob Wachal's -- that a coupe' had two
doors and a sedan four. The interior was also smaller. In the 50s,
weren't there also cars that were billed as two-door sedans for a while --
i.e., a rather big car almost the size of a 4-door but with only two doors?
As a pre-teen I also thought a coupe' had to have a rumbleseat. And I have
echoes of people saying 'coup' for small cars that weren't fancy.
