Great video, thanks Steve. Makes you want to go out and buy one eh??

I like the coupe pronunciation .... koo pay
My grandpa said it like that koo-pay. They used to show the internals of the motor to sell you a car. Now that a lot of people can't even change oil anymore they just show you how it can parallel park for you.
Chris - that's how we pronounce it over here in Europe and apparently also back then in the US.
I'm not sure when the chain fall off..... :-)
(Note the accent above the e: Coupé)
I believe some other similar words are pronounced the same-
Porsche - Por sha
Cafe - Ca fay
Manuel in Oz
Cafe is likely spelled Café - at least in french where it comes from - just like Coupé does :-)
I am going to my ford dealer now! I'm sure they have at least 1 or 2 left over in the back lot!
Wouldn't mind having one of those. Especially the convertible.
My second car in highschool was a 40 coup. It would run like a scared rabbit in low and second but would loose out when you hit high. Would like to have it today, but I don't have the energy to finish my TT. Allen S W. Mo.
I liked the video Steve, so I went out and bought one It is a fun car to drive, just like a T.
"Why does a chicken coupe have 2 doors?...
Because if it had 4 doors it would be a chicken sedan!"
I really like the thoughts Man-well in OZ provided!
Great video. My brother in law has 2 hot rod coupes a 39 black with a 265 tri power set up, 4 speed car his dad built in the late 50s. Factory paint steel wheels and all. Really old school hot rod. Also he has a modern resto rod black 40 coupe he built. I like the stock ones but both of his are really nice. But the one from the 50s build is just cool. It also was a the feature car at the Dawsonville Ga Moonshine festival last year. It's a really big ford gathering in the fall of the year. Still the one old car I haven't had. Might not get one at this point!! The T s and A s are in the garAge space.
Coups are for chickens.
Convertibles are for men.
The price goes up if the top goes down.
