Here is a direct quote from Jim Benjaminson's fabulous book, "Plymouth, 1946 to 1959"

'Midway through the model year a 'Silver Special' package was introduced on Plaza two- and four-door sedans. Consisting of Sportone trim with anodized aluminium insert, front fender and door moldings, special metallic silver roof paint, full wheel covers, whitewall tires, directional signals, electric wipers, windshield washers, and 'Forward Look' emblems pirated from the 1956 Plymouth, the two-door Silver Special was to sell for $1,958 in 1958."

The photo on the book shows a white one with the silver trim and roof, so I am unsure of the color options available. However, it may be safe to infer a lower priced car would have limited paint options. I have never seen one, nor have I seen any literature on one, but I don't look at '58 literature only '57 stuff.

Hope that helped.
