I'm considering buying a 26-27 coupe to add to the collection. Could anyone with a restored or
original coupe with inflated tires provide me
with a measurement from floor to top of car? I have a somewhat low door in my shop so don't know if it would clear. The car I am considering is quite a distance away so don't want to make a trip just to measure the height. Thanks for your help. Dennis
Why not have someone measure the car as it sits and where it sits now ?
The actual height can vary from vehicle to vehicle
Dennis, my 27 coupe is 73" tall, with inflated tires.
My touring is Seven feet tall at it's highest point.
Thanks for the measurements. The car is in a storage situation with an uneven floor with some flat tires from what I was told. I'll use Danial's measurement plus some fudge room to see if it will fit through my door. I think I'll be OK as my roadster fit with the top up. I didn't smash it the first time I drove in without checking :-) Dennis
Good luck, Dennis...be sure to post a pic if the coupe follows you home...
Hope I can purchase the coupe but am just in the preliminary stages. Have to find out more about it but does need interior and I'm sure a general
going over. Would be an easier project than what I have done before (start with bare frame
and restore everything). I really want the coupe for a driver. If I can buy it I won't have it until next spring. Your coupe looks
Thanks, Dennis. We love our coupe. When it's not raining, we take it out at almost every opportunity.
Love taking it to the local convenience store for beer and bread runs and to Saturday morning breakfast at the local diner....there's always at least a couple of folks who want to bend our ears about it which is fun.
William, Thanks for the measurement on the touring. It's almost identical in height to my roadster.
Danial, The coupe is slightly shorter than my roadster so it will fit easily under the door opening. You don't drive your coupe in the rain?? That's why I want one. Remember, a coupe is just a roadster wearing a rain slicker. :-) Seriously, neither my T roadster or my muscle machines go out in bad weather.
Thanks again for the help guys. Dennis
Yea big. That's a 6' ladder.
