Corvette, for only a couple years, offered three "Firemist" paint...
...colors. Although some of their color offerings were metallic, the Firemist paint had a slightly larger, more reflective metallic 'flake'.

The three were Steel Cities Gray Firemist, Ontario Orange Firemist and War Bonnet Yellow Firemist. I ordered a new 72 Corvette in 71. It took 11 weeks to come in. It was Ontario Orange Firemist.

Native American Indians had little regard for gold, except for it's color. So if a chief fashioned a war bonnet in that color, it would, possibly be said to be yellow instead of what others may describe as gold.
