Not if theres a back seat. the biz coupe is longer. I've been all through this with my biz coupe and had a hard time just finding one, mine is a Plymouth so yours would be a little easier to find but not much and be prepared its going to be expensive.

You need to do more research, I believe the trunks are the same, the business couple simply had no rear seat. Unlike the Dodge which had a shorter roof too, thus a longer trunk lid. But the Ford, I don't believe the body changed.

You can always tell a business coupe by the shorter 1/4 glass too. Theres no room for a back seat just a suitcase that's why the longer deck and shorter 1/4 glass and cooler looking roof "business mans coupe" very hard to find here so I'll bet impossible to find one in the UK. Whats the matter with the one that's on it?

The business coupe is a short door coupe with a shorter roof as DBM said. The club coupe has a longer roof to make room for the rear seat so the bodies are indeed different. The deck lids are the same on Fords though.

LOL, That's the bottom line. The business coupe used a door from a four door and the club coupe used a door from a two door. That is why they are frequently referred to a short door coupe or a long door coupe.
