        Do the coupes have a lower roofline and more severely raked windshield than the hardtops?

          Not stock, they don't. It looks like that was what you were asking. If you are referring to particular modified cars - anything goes.

            In this instance, both bodies are un-cut stock. The white car is much lower in the rear while mine has a rake. (lowered only in the front)

              The roofline of the coupe looks lower than the hardtop
              because the coupe doors have window frames.
              Therefor the door window is not as high.
