    coupe and sedan 70s subbies? lost

    are these different cars?
    a coupe and the 2 door sedan?
    and I saw something about a hard top? (is that just a word for coupe)

    Yes, the Hardtop is the Coupe, and the 2-door sedan is actually a different car as described.

    Actually...no.

    The Coupe and Hardtop shared the sportier styling but the Hardtop had roll-down rear windows and a different shape to the rear window glass (obviously the glass wasn't interchangeable since the Coupe's rear glass didn't roll down). The 2-Door Sedan was a stripped-down 4-Door Sedan with only two doors. I'm not sure if the rear window glass between the 2-Door Sedan and the Coupe were interchangeable, but I'm pretty sure not. One of the board members at USMB, moosens, would know for sure. What I do know is that all three models were different, and served different markets. The Coupe served those who wanted a sporty Subaru (think WRX); the 2-door Sedan served those who wanted a basic, stripped-down A to B subaru (think Impreza Brighton from a couple years back); and the Hardtop (only available in GF trim for most of the model run) was the luxury Subaru (think GL-10 or Limited trim).

    Hope this helps. I have a couple of original sales brochures that outline the major differences in trim, too; I'll have to look them out.

    Coupe/Hardtop:



    2-door Sedan:



    The only good way to tell is that window... Coupe = more of a triangle, 2-door = more of a square.

    Are you sure any of the 70's coupes had roll-down windows? I don't recall seeing that on the one or two i've seen in person.

    I don't think they did, that's why I asked for the photo. :wink:

    And in my opinion (and 99.9% of other people's too), unless there's no B-pillar, it's not a "Hardtop". It's a Coupe. :tu:
