1960 Thunderbird Platinum paint
This silver gray automotive paint color is most commonly known as Platinum. Other common color promotional names include Cloud Silver, Gunsmoke Gray, and Silver Mist Gray. The color formulation has been used between 1959 and 1960, primarily by Ford; but also by Mercury, Lincoln, and Massey Ferguson. We have records of this color appearing on the following models: Lincoln, Thunderbird, Mercury, Comet, Edsel, Fairlane, Galaxie, and Falcon. See the full detailed list below.

The short model/year code for this paint on a Thunderbird in 1960, is Z. The longer Ford paint manufacturing code is M1287 or M1287A. 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.
