I love this!
That description is a hoot!
Cool, my wife is a nurse so she'd be qualified to drive that one. I can't afford to send her to school for 8 more years just to get a Doctor's Coupe.
I prefer the mental hospital edition over the medical edition, but they are very rare and hard to drive with the originally supplied straightjacket.
Distributor! Just what the medical examiner ordered!
The mental hospital-ladies edition came with a pink straight jacket.
In the 50's, Dodge offered a similar version. They called it a "La Fem" and substituted the straight jacket for a matching set of gloves, hat, and purse.
I knew somebody who had a La Fem. Weird bit of auto history there.
Dentist's coupe was white.
Mortician's coupe was grey.
Hematologist's coupe was red.
Urologist's coupe was yellow.
Proctologist's coupe was brown.
La Femme - I remember seeing one of those
I was 10 years old.
Hole cut in instrument panel for speedometer but no speedometer, no Ruckstell or other auxiliary transmission or brakes. No way of telling if the magneto works, but why else would he install a distributor. That car is worth about one half the price asked. Maybe $10,000 if the engine and transmission are in excellent running condition. He doesn't mention whether the car has safety glass either. Paint and upholstery looks good in the pictures.
Pretty obvious that the marketing geniuses at the Dodge Division did that to increase sales to the women folk.
My how times have changed. If that was tried today, Dodge would be the next brand of cars to go the way of Mercury, Pontiac, and Plymouth.
I more than agree with Norman - I was thinking $7000 tops. I think the owner is phishing...
Didn't even give it a bath! Looks like it's been sitting a looong time.
