Hi Robert, in typical OJ fashion, I'll take a stab at this one...
I once had an 85 4ksq that used to flood the passenger side rear on heavy 
rain days. Like your coupe, it was only the floor that got wet. It took 
me nearly a month of soaking the car and looking for leaks before I found 
it. To make a long story short, I removed all the seats and carpeting, 
climbed inside and had a friend run the garden hose over the entire car.
The leak turned out to be coming from the windshield and running down the 
fire wall to the floor. However the angle that the car was always parked 
let the water run back to the rear where it would "pool" against the 
ledge that the rear seat is on.

I have no idea if this is even close to what's happening in your coupe, 
but ya just never know...
