audi coupe to quattro

Theoretically, yes.  Although the floorpan is nominally the same, they have 
different part numbers.  Most of the body parts (fenders, doors, etc.) are 
different in one way or another.  You also have to replace the engine, 
electrics, electronics (the full book of ur-quattro wiring diagrams is four 
inches thick), and _all_ of the running gear. And the quattro transmission is 
expensive. Given a wrecked ur-quattro and a Coupe, it's easier to repair the ur-
quattro using the Coupe parts.
