If it hauls people it can be considered as several different type vehicle. If it hauls cargo IT'S A TRUCK! Of the many sedan deliveries I've know not one was a people hauler but rather used in delivery of light cargo or to carry a salesman's samples. We once put a V8 in a Vega sedan delivery that had a floor safe and was used by a vending machine company to collect the take from the machines. It had a Texas TRUCK license plate so you are calling 30 million Texans wrong!

Can we help the OP or are you all just going to argue a settled point?

As far as helping Samiam, you should be able to count the holes/clips that the bows fit into to get your total count. You probably already know they won’t all be the same length. Shorter at the front/back.

I've got a 52 Sedan Delivery in my shop right now, I'll count the bows for you today and see if I can tell how that rear bow was attached.

There are seven bows including the rearmost. Counting the holes probably won't help you too much as the front two are different than the center four (which four are adjacent to the roof supports); and the rearmost has a different style hole than the front two.

This is the rearmost - it just goes into the round hole (which unlike the front two, the rearmost one has no "lock" to keep the bow from moving).

Trying to post a photo for you but the "attachment manager" isn't appearing - I'll try posting from the "imgur":

Hopefully it's clear from there, that the ends of the bow simply sit in there and there was no other retention for the bow. I imagine this way you could pull the headliner rearward (as the front bows cannot rotate towards the rear) and then the screw in trim would hold the thing in place from there.
