Re: Hardtop, Sedan, Coupe explain
Sedan and coupe have a frame around the door windows, and a sharper more vertical roof line profile in the back. Sedans I guess have 4 doors and coupes have two although I have heard coupes described as "2 door sedans". A sedan/coupe is also called a "post", because it has a "post" between the front and back windows.
A hard top has no frame around the door window, and hence no "post" between the front and back side windows. They come in 2 and 4 door versions in a lot of makes and models.
Generally speaking the higher performance goodies were available on the hard tops more than the sedans but there are exceptions to this.
There may be other differences, but these are the obvious ones that come to mind off the top of my head.

As usual, Andy is right
If it doesn't fit, force it. If it breaks, it needed to be replaced anyway.
