Probably a REALY dumb question

I want to start an a 28-29 roadster project. I don't want a top of any kind. Your standard hot rod,

I was wondering do I have to start with a roadster body or can i just cut the roof off of a 5 window coupe. I googled like mad and couldn't find the answer. So if I dont ask, I will never know.

Thanks, Mike.

chop away --have fun-- but remember -- coupes are getting real hard to come by-- you might sell it and buy a roadster or swap for one --

id love to have a coupe-- kinda hard to drive a roadster in the rain --

you could cut the top off of a 5 window.. but coupes can bring more money than roadsters so I don't see where it makes sense to do that, unless the top 1/2 of the car is shot anyway
