electra225 wrote Floride for me.

If I remember correctly, the Caravelle was the name of the Coupe and the Floride was the name of the Convertible, the one that I see on the picture is a coupe.

No, the Floride was the early version, the Caravelle the later model (and the coupé version of the Floride S and the name for the Floride sold in USA). This is a Floride, recognisable by the roof line (on the Caravelle it was more edgy to make it a 4 seater) and the lack of louvres on top of the rear engine lid (the Floride had the Dauphine engine with the radiator in front, and air intakes on the side of the car, whareas the Caravelle had the R8 engine with the radiator at the rear and therefore louvres on top of the lid).

Its more complicated and it dépends on the era and the area we consider.

In France and Europe , the Coupé, the Cabriolet and the Convertible (Cabrio+removable hard top) are all named Floride from the first YM in 1959 until 1962. While in the USA, all the Florides are named Caravelle since the presence of the model on the US Market.
In France and Europe, a new model was launched in 1962 ,with more powerfull 48hp /956cc engine as Floride S for the Cabriolet/Convertible and Caravelle for the coupé which has a higher roof and larger rear Windows (à la 2+2).
In 1964, all the range, either Cabrio/convertible or Coupé, is named Caravelle 1100 with 6CV 55hp 1108cc engine (from the Estafette),until 1966 then renamed Caravelle 1100 S (57,5hp)... last models in 1968 as Caravelle ("1100" dropped from the name).
