1958 Thunderbird Platinum paint
This silver gray automotive paint color is most commonly known as Silver Sheen. Other common color promotional names include Platinum, Silver, and Silver Gray. The color formulation has been used between 1958 and 1959, primarily by Lincoln; but also by Mercury and Ford. We have records of this color appearing on the following models: Lincoln, Thunderbird, and Mercury. See the full detailed list below.

The longer Ford paint manufacturing code is M0979 or M0979A. 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.
