Dusk Rose is what Ford called pastel pink

Pick of the Day is a 1957 Ford Thunderbird

With October designated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it seems fitting that the Pick of the Day for October 1 is a car worthy of a matching pink ribbon, or in the case of this 1957 Ford Thunderbird, a Dusk Rose ribbon.

Dusk Rose was Ford’s description of the pink shade it offered among a palette of pastel colors for its early two-seater Thunderbirds.

According to the advertisement for the car on ClassicCars.com, this T’bird has been driven only 20 miles since its most recent purchase in 2012.  

It “sits in the warehouse on a battery tender,” said the collector car dealer located in Cadillac, Michigan, adding that vehicle has recently been detailed and “driven around the block.”

The car carries a 312cid V8 linked to an automatic transmission. It also has an updated radio and aftermarket air conditioning, rides on wire wheels and has power steering, windows and brakes, and fender skirts.

The car has its white convertible top and removable “porthole” hardtop. 

The asking price is $80,895.

    I had a ’59 Ford Ranch Wagon back in high school that was "Fawn Tan". Looked pink to most!

      Mr. Paull, thank-you, for that information. I’m off, to ‘Google’ "Fawn Tan" 1959 Ford pix, now.
