I would say no they are not since the coupe doors have the post and overhead part for the window to roll up into while the convertible does not.

The early model coupe is technically a 2dr sedan, not a hardtop.
The late model coupe is a 2dr hardtop.

The late model coupe and convertible doors are interchangeable if one adds or deletes the small wedges as needed for the application.

If you have a rusted out early model convertible door and a very nice early model coupe door, it might be possible to take the door skin off the coupe door and install it on the convertible door with some modifications to some area's although it might be best to find a better replacement convertible door to begin with.

Thanks. Then what I'm looking at must be a conv. door as it has no window frame. Seller did not specify.

Answer is, It Depends!

I have taken early 2 door doors and removed the frame surrounding the glass and the vent assembly. Installed the convertible vent assembly, glass winder and glass.

The hinges and shell are the same. You will have to drill out spot welds to remove the frame around the glass.

I removed the top frame from a EM coupe door and installed it on a convertible. Only problem was the clips for the fuzzies did not match correctly. Jerry
