With and without fenders... which one do you like?

With fenders would be my choice on that one.

Sport Coupe uses 5W doors but the cowl A pillars differ at the windshield frame area for the square upper w/s corners, while the Cabriolet has unique doors that have no window surround, and also different hinge locations on the A pillar. Both bodies use some top bows to support the soft top but the S/C top is fixed so naturally there is no folding top assembly. S/C has quarter panels similar to 5 W with some minor differences at the B pillar but what makes the Cabriolet quarter really different is the lack of the raised reveal next to the deck lid as well as the filler panel behind the passenger area and the panel below the deck lid which is welded and metal finished to the quarters. Also, the door handle escutcheon plate is flat on the Cabriolet as the handles mount flat on the panel, not on the reveal like the S/C and 5W. I'd say those are the major differences.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

I've been thinking about my mention of the lower panel to quarters being metal finished, and must say I don't know for sure. As I have mentioned here before I owned a Cabriolet when I was 18, it was a decent channeled body, '32 frame, steering and front end with chromed hydraulic brakes and also a '57 Chevy rear end. No tools, no garage and not enough knowledge so I traded it off. Anyway, 50 years later and my memory is a bit foggy. Was that panel leaded by the factory or did a rodder do that?
