This red automotive paint color is most commonly known as Cameo Rose. Another common paint color promotional name is Autumn Rose.

The short model/year code for this paint on a Thunderbird in 1958, is W. The longer Ford paint manufacturing code is M0860 or M0860A. Ford production paint codes starting with M are usually followed by a 4 digit number and the letter "A" indicating its an exterior paint. The same code ending in the letter "G" is common for interior paints. These longer manufacturing codes are useful for tracking paint usage.
