My Acme automotive paint color book shows the color as paint code "P" and was a 1965 Pontiac only color option, so it could have been ordered on any model. After '65, the color could be had as a special order color on the Pontiac cars. My '67 GTO convert was this color and the '67 National Geographic carried an ad for a '67 GTO HT in Iris Mist. I recall many years back a 1968 Bonneville that was Iris Mist and I believe a white vinyl top. As most seem to find out on the forum, that it is hard to know exactly what the special order paint color was IF the car has been stripped & repainted and there is no trace/evidence left of the original color as the PHS documents only seem to denote the "special color" code, but not the color - but there may be instances where it was noted, but most don't seem to specify.
