Dodge La Femme

1955: Chrysler introduced the Dodge La Femme, a two-door, pink-and-white sedan "for the discriminating modern woman".


In an attempt to make the car irresistible to women, Dodge also threw in a pink leather handbag that contained "cigarette lighter and case, compact, lipstick and other feminine items covered in matching pink leather." Plus, "a vinyl raincoat and stylish sou'wester hat, printed in the same pink shade and pattern as the Jacquard upholstery." And a matching pink umbrella!

But even with all this, the car failed to appeal to consumers. However, because fewer than 2500 of them were ever made, the car is now sought after by collectors.

No wonder. I guess this car was designed exclusively by middle aged men. About as feminist as the Women's Status Council of Saudi Arabia.

I think it is a coupe, not a sedan.

The last one sold at auction in 2017 brought in $34,000.
Only about 55 of the 1,004 built are known to exist.
