Coupe! Keep your coupe! Down the road buy another roadster and have both!
coupe for sure you'd be silly to trade for a roadster In my opinion. but at the end of the day you own the car and you gotta make the choice.
WHY CHOOSE ???
Just have BOTH
Stay with the coupe!
Roadster....Less work (no choppin), and we will look cool wearin the goggles when we go for a ride !
you could ask the missus...they're always right you know
Awww Fleet, here is what she said...."What ever makes you happy" Then she said "We would have our convertible then". I'm a lucky guy!!
So far the Roadster has 13 votes and the Coupe has 11. I should do it just for what Kerry67 said, I can always make a removable top for it also. I think I might be leanin
It's all subjective, but stay with the coupe man! Maybe some eye-candy to persuade you...
dang it Cherry, I have 425 Nailhead for it too. That's a nice coupe!!
I'm a coupe guy... but a 29 on 32 rails would be Really Really sweet.
I'd keep the coupe and buy a 28/29 body to put in the rafters for later.
This Shit makes my mind spin, why can't I have it all!!!
its your decision and a tough one at that. but were i live with rain and cold i would keep your coupe. living in arizona i would think the sun would cook ya in the roadster. around here the coupes and roadsters bring about the same price. good luck on your decision
Long term the coupe is easier to live with - even or especially in the heat. Although I would prefer a '28/'29, I'd still stick with the coupe. It has more room and travels better. Brookville makes steel roadster bodies so they are not getting any rarer and prices are stable.
I have had both and maybe it's because I'm old, but 500 miles in a roadster has long lost it's appeal....
I will submit my vote in the form of pictures.
I couldn't find a single picture of a full fendered '28-'29 roadster, much less one done up nice, in my stash. You could very much be the person to help resolve this issue.

This 1928 was always my favorite full fendered A roadster....
Keep the coupe and give me a shot at the roadster?
I got my first roadster last spring and I just turned over 14K miles and I've been in the rain four times and I wouldn't go back to a coupe unless I could keep both. The roadster is the most fun car I have ever owned. I don't have an a/c house and love being outdoors so I don't mind the sun or rain. good luck
29 roadsters on 32 rails
I'd go with the roadster.
yeah, can always put a cloth top on it and remove it.. my problem is size. so dose not matter if its a coup, or a roadster if i can not get in the car. im planing on building a tbucket, found one that is stretched out which ill fit.. probably gonna go that rout.. if the sun bugs me, ill just get a top for it, and come winter, ill have 6 months of perfect weather to lose the top.
Buy a Vicky!
Take the fenders off the coupe, chop it 3-4 inches and then turn it into a hiboy, either with a flathead or leave the 4 banger in it and hop it up...
Too many Chevy small block 350s...and in a Ford?
Deuce Roadster nailed it!!! WHY CHOOSE
There are roadster guys and there are coupe guys. We roadster guys don't mind getting wet a lot, baking in the sun, freezing our tails off, or being hit in the head by bugs the size of B52's. Coupe and sedan guys will never understand it, we are a strange breed. I've driven in 5 hours of rain in an open roadster, where I couldn't see the cars in front of me. THAT is what separates us from guys who want a roof over their head.
So you have to decide if you are a roadster guy or a coupe guy, and make your car decision based on that.
Your coupe on '32 rails would be the BOMB! They are not making anymore of those...
The roof an a coupe is nice on a hot day, if you're missing hair like me hahaha.
I vote for the roadster, but then I've always been a roadster guy. I guess it depends on what kind of driving you most do on a Sunday drive? I wear a cap to keep the sun off.
