'66 Sedan VS Coupe Roof

Is there any difference between the '66's Sedan (Post) and Coupe (No Post) roof? Mine has some heavy pitting in it and looking to replace it. Talking with my grandfather, there seem to be some differences with body lines and panel fitment between the two on different Chevy vehicles. The roofs that we are finding state Coupe, but wondering if it is just referring to the 2 Door models as a whole, rather than differentiating between the two (post vs non-post).

Looking at the pictures and examining the car, it seems like there is no difference when it comes to the roof skin itself.

Thanks in advance!

Re: '66 Sedan VS Coupe Roof

The entire roof of a 66-67 2-dr post car is identical to a 4-dr post car (other than the frame around the rear quarter glass on the 2-dr versus the B-pillar on a 4-dr). You might get lucky and find a 2-dr post roof, but you should have no problem at all finding a 4-dr post roof. Happy hunting!

Filler panel, between the rear glass and the trunk lid?

IIRC, its the same as the roof. any 4-door post car or 2-door post car should work. the 2-door hardtops are different as are the 4-door hardtop (Malibu only).

That is out of a Chevrolet (GM) parts book.

And for translation purposes in GM speak, a sedan means a two or four door with pillars, a sports sedan means a four door hardtop, and a sports coupe means a two door hardtop.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.

BIGOT is a word used by people that can't use logical reasoning to prove that you are wrong when you don't agree with them.

FWIW, Chevrolet stopped calling 2-door pillared body style sedan after 1967, for 68 and 69 it was changed to 'coupe' for the 13x27 body style.

Yea, the GM parts book I was using must have been older because it does not reference part numbers. Just cost of the job and time frame. Someone explained the whole sedan, hardtop, thing to me and was still confused for a while.
