Is the turtle deck for a roadster ? Do think it would fit a coupe?

It's for a Runabout.
It's a nice one at a good price.

That upward flare at the front edge of the top surface was not on the '22-back turtles. That was a feature of the '23-25 ones. Also, the '22-back ones had a front panel which this one does not have, and the latch handles are different. I'm not sure what you have there, but I'm sure it's not a '17-22 Ford turtle unless it has been modified.

It could very well be an aftermarket deck, but it doesn't line up with the bead on the back panel of the body tub on my 24. I don't know what the handles are. They are stamped and t-shaped. My car came to me as a bitsa and I'm trying to put it back to factory. Whether it's completely correct or not, I can't see sending a perfectly good piece to the scrap. Surely someone can find a use for it.

Maybe it's for some car other than Ford. It does look to be in nice condition.

It looks like a 23/25 turtle deck that has been modified with the older style lid. Very nice any measurements?

Sorry for the delay. It's been a busy week between work and body work. I took some measurements and photos this evening. The deck measures 35-3/4" wide and 35" long. The height is about 8-1/2" tall at the tail and 16" tall where it meets the body. The curves at the front of the base don't quite match the body contour of my 24, so I don't think it is a modified 23-25 deck. It is also missing the holes that would mount the deck to the rear body panel. The lid measures 24" wide x 20-1/2" tall. The wood frame looks to be fairly new (last 20-30 years). The sheet metal wraps around the frame and is attached with counter-sunk, flat head, slotted screws.

Uprights that the PO fabricated to close the gap:.
