Alright, here's my friend's Rebel Machine tag.

I don't know how AMC dealt with special-order colors, but this one has the color code on it.

Regarding Bahama Yellow, this is what my knowledgable friend says:

"It wasn't announced as a standard color until February 1969; prior to that it was an extra cost color but Chrysler waved it because they were ordering cars in California in fleet order quantities to avoid the extra cost of a special order paint."

Nonetheless, I think we can learn the real truth from Wes, whose Road Runner book just came out. I'll give him a heads-up to respond.
