Yes, they are hardtops, not coupes. Check all the vintage sales brochures, ads, etc. & that's what Ford called them. Dean

No need to be pedantic. Hardtop, coupe, even notchback... they’re all synonyms in the Mustang world.

I believe they are all VMF cars. It was changed a few years ago when this same discussion occurred.

I waited 40 years for my vintage coupe.. never really considered a fastback or a vert, tho I did own a 99 vert for about 6 months once.
