There WAS a salmon color for 1961 Plymouths which many people call 'pink',but it's definitely NOT like the "59 Caddy-style" bright pastel pink that this Fury was repainted in. The diner repainted this car for a "50's effect" [?!?].
I can accept the factory salmon,but THIS kind of pink just doesn't fit the car! (even if the driver was a woman/homosexual/whatever....) And I'm surprised that the diner couldn't find a more '50's type of car in Grand Junction,Colorado! They should have done this to,say a '58 Olds four door or something.... I don't think a '61 Plymouth suggests "'50's" to most people....
The only "pink" Plymouths I really like are Panther Pink 'Cudas! (that's a WORLD away from pastel pink!).
I wonder what color the new owner's gonna paint that '61 ragtop?
