1971 Ford LTD

If you’ve been following auto stuff long enough, you’ve likely come across the descriptor 2-door sedan. Some will argue that all 2-door vehicles with a trunk are coupes, while other folks argue otherwise. According to the editors at website Curbside Classics, this is the real story:

…a two-door sedan is a two-door version of a four-door sedan, and one that shares the same roof; as in all or much of the actual same roof structure and/or pressing.”

So, basically, if a car with two doors is fundamentally the same as a car with four doors, it is a 2-door sedan. However, if a car with 2 doors enjoys a unique roofline, or any other unique body-design elements, it is a coupe. Got that?

I’m pretty sure you’ll agree that most of the cars shared below are true coupes, but we’re open to hearing arguments otherwise. Tell us what you think, the place to leave comments is down below.
