Chrysler La Comtesse (1954) - predecessor of the La Femme.
The La Comtesse, along with the Le Comte were “His and Hers” concept cars designed by Virgil Exner to appeal to the burgeoning “second-car” family. Two-toned with dusty rose and cream and sporting lots of chrome highlights, the La Comtesse was the forerunner to the La Femme which amplified the feminine theme even more.

La Comtesse, Chrysler’s show car was based on a New Yorker Deluxe Newport two-door hardtop, featuring a full-length plexiglass roof panel, continental rear tire mount, Kelsey-Hayes wire spoke wheels, and custom trim. Created for the feminine customer, the exterior was a two-tone dusty rose with a pigeon gray top. The six-passenger interior of the La Comtesse was finished in cream and dusty rose leather with seat back inserts of platinum brocatelle. Under the hood, sat a 235 horsepower Firepower V-8, teamed with a PowerFlite automatic transmission.

Chrysler’s exotic new plastic top car, presents a gorgeous two-tone exterior of dusty rose with a pigeon gray top. The interior is luxuriously finished in cream and dusty rose leather with seat back inserts of platinum brocatelle fabric. Interior appointments are set off by specially-designed chrome hardware. A long, low note is provided by heavy chrome molding running along the lower body of the car from the front wheel openings to the rear bumper. A continental tire mount and chrome wire wheels add to the car’s smart appearance. La Comtesse is built on a New Yorker Deluxe Newport chassis and is powered by a 235-horsepower Chrysler FirePower V-8 engine and features fully-automatic PowerFlite transmission, power steering and power brakes plus Chrysler’s high-roll front suspension for easier handling and improved roadability.

The La Comtesse show car has been found in Southern California. I have a few pictures. Chrysler Foundation has the car and it eventually will go in their museum.
