Great car. Question; is every Ford coupe an 'opera' coupe, or only the one's with a fold down seat?

The 40 fords with a package shelf and without the jump seats are not Opera coupes, they are business coupes

Looks a lot like a car my Grandma had back in the 50s. She called it Black Beauty.

On May 7, 2011, there were two identical twin 1940 Ford coupes parked outside a hamburger cafe at Roseville, MN. They were side-by-side and were mirror images of each other. Black cars with wide white sidewalls. One had an extra grill guard above the front bumper, otherwise they seemed to be exact copies. In the early 1950's I had a 1936 Ford five window coupe, and later a 1940 Plymouth business coupe, so I enjoy seeing cars like that 60 years later.

One of my dream cars, and will be one for me to enjoy some day. I am looking to trade my 32 ford roadster for a clean coupe like this one. My name is lance troupe and if you were to look under readers, click on the 40 and older, you can see the car, it has a Duvall windshield and is painted sapphire blue. check it out its a nice car.

I just bought a 40 deluxe business coupe without the back jump seat. I'd like to change the interior to incorporate the jump seat. Is the body (sheet metal) the same on both coupes?
