Silly question - Difference between a hardtop and a 2 door sedan?

Am in the process of bringing a '62 hartop to New Zealand from San Diego and am curious what the difference is?. Far as I can see they've both got hard tops and 2 doors but they are advertised as 2 different things. Will be on the hunt soon for parts if any of is keen to send worldwide!

Hard top has no post at the rear of the front door, also known as a coupe, when you roll the window down it's all open to the back C post. The sedan has the B post and frame around the door windows.

OK look at the picture in the Flyers signature area... See how you kinda throw up a little bit in your mouth... if it was a coupe you would feel like all is right in the world....
