BERLINE

CABRIOLET

CALASH (also name for folding top on BAROUCHE, CHAISE and VICTORIA)

CHAISE (CHAY, SHAY)

CURRICLE (TYPE OF CHAISE)

COUPE


No roof for driver = COUPE DE-VILLE
Coupé de-ville with folding top = LANDAU
Coupé de-ville with folding top over passenger =LANDAULET

DILIGENCE

- “Fly” = A cab (short for cabriolet) for hire, hansom replaced hackney
- A hackney of a more expensive or high class was called a REMISE
