I do not believe this is the correct trunk/t-deck for my '21 coupe. Can anyone identify which model this trunk is for?

trunk

Your deck for the Coupe won't come like that unless it's mounted to the wood frame. The Coupe has individual pieces nailed to the framing whereas the Roadster decks are one piece all steel. (Except for the deck flooring.) Your Coupe also won't have the upward flare at the front where it joins the body.

The turtle for the '15-'19 Coupelets and Coupes are pretty much all the same. Apparently there is something different about the '20-23's, but I don't know what it is, because they look the same and the '19-'23 Coupe bodies are pretty much all the same.

As mentioned above, the turtle is sheet metal panels tacked onto a wood frame like the one posted in another current thread. The turtle attaches to the chassis first, then the body slips over the front edge of it.
