I've been wondering about this too. I would think that the coupe carpet would work seeing as how they started off as coupes. Maybe the carpet was changed when they went to get converted, but I doubt it. I don't know for sure though.

Rockauto lists it. They say 2 & 4dr, exc convertible. I can't imagine why a 2dr shell would be any different unless there was additional bracing or something. Perhaps it isn't in the fit but in the material? Mold resistant or more sound deadening?

Just from removing my coupe carpeting I think it has a different shape around the back seating area. The coupe carpet runs underneath the rear seats and sort of goes into the trunk area. The on the vert the carpet shape would have to be different in that area because of the top. Coupe carpeting should be roughly the same shape but you might have to trim up the rear portion of it.

I suppose I will have to contact the manufacturer if its too big due to going under the seat you would think it would be trim to fit?

The only difference between the coupe and the convertible interior was the addition of a top. Because of where the top sits the coupe carpet cannot pass through into the trunk. If that squared section was trimmed off under the rear seats to me it would fit the convertible. Ive got a coupe and Vert and both could use some new carpet so I`ll probably be doing the same job soon.

 

Seat belt holes are in the same place, same brass clips holding the carpet around rocker panel area, center consoles are interchangeable between older style trim and the 1995 re design, and several members have swapped from a rear bench seat to the dual bucket setup and Ive never read a fitment issue. My scientific wild ass guess is yes a coupe carpet can be trimmed to fit a convertible. Good luck getting the seats out, you really want to triple check the star bit socket is indeed the correct size for the seats mounting bolts, other than that its remotely easy by yourself.
