Header, cowl & windshield are also different between a post & a ragtop

Check windshield compatibility - I don't know for sure but maybe the windshield is unique to the ragtop

Yes, so far as I know fenders, trunk, quarters (at least the outside skins on the quarters) etc are the same for both, and yes chassis is VERY different, as are front & rear cowl bracing.

Some guys are getting stupid $$$$ for just a firewall, cowl & windshield header from a rusted pile of junk ragtop, so that a sedan can made into a ragtop and have the right stuff, including a correct firewall code tag.
