 Ya know, at the end of the day, in the world of Corvairs, if someone says 'coupe', we ALL know they mean 2 door cars. If someone says 'sedan', we ALL know they mean 4 door cars. 

Now, wasn't that simple? <G>

Subject: <VV> difference between a sedan and a coupe (shorter)


In reality, a coupe is strictly defined by its interior volume or space.

Distinctions between a coupe and a sedan has little to do with doors  

and are

made clear by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), which  


definitions of the different types of cars on the market.  

Measurements of a

coupe and a sedan are as follows:

.         Coupe equals less than 33 cubic feet (.934 cubic m).

.         Sedan is equal to or greater than 33 cubic feet.

Which begs the question: How many cubic feet are in a Corvair two  

door and four door?
