This yellow automotive paint color is most commonly known as Buttercup Yellow. Other common color promotional names include Pastel Yellow, Egg Nog, Moroccan Ivory, and Sun Haze Yellow. The color formulation has been used between 1960 and 1972, primarily by Mercury; but also by Ford, Lincoln, and Appliance. We have records of this color appearing on the following models: Thunderbird, Comet, Edsel, and Hussmann. See the full detailed list below.

The short make/year code for this paint on a Mercury in 1960, is R. Careful when using this paint code along with the make and year to specify this paint since it is may not be unique. You can check the paint code here: R. The longer Ford paint manufacturing code is M1275 or M1275A. 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.
