1959 Dodge Custom Lancer, Pink Car Ads

1959 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer

As far as colors go, pink is a relative newbie. Per Wikipedia, pink was first used as a color name in the late seventeenth century. As a car color, pink’s use has been sporadic at best, though for a brief moment in time (really just the mid Fifties into the early Sixties), pink cars were all the rage.

We can’t even imagine what kind of a resale-value hit a modern car or crossover would take were it painted pink, but we imagine it would be profound. Collected for you here are 16 classic car ads featuring pink cars, or at least cars in some hue very close to pink. Let us know what you think.
