Lance" 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. DMLance
