Hotchkis convertible cross brace in a coupe?

I was about to order a set of Hotchkis subframe connectors for my '69 coupe, and noticed that also available is a very similar setup but with an additional cross-brace intended for convertibles.

Does anyone know if it will fit a coupe? Obviously it'd weigh a little more, but if it adds even more rigidity, that's a penalty I'm willing to pay...

Thanks!
Dave

There will be no place to bolt it on a coupe...

Ok, thanks. I had thought the brace just bolted from one subframe connector to the other.

I doubt it have any benefit, even if you "made" a way to mount it.
