    How were you able to determine it is a 1958 model?
    I have a red phantom but not sure of the year it was made.
    The red is not solid, but more like candy apple red.
    Thanks.

    That sounds like "candy apple" was a popular color in the mid 50s.
    My Western Flyer X-53 had a similar red translucent color which I got for Christmas in '55.
    Thanks!

    I determined it was a 1958 by the serial number on the left rear dropout.
