You could have had some parts swapped out by a previous owner that were earlier and therefore red, that got painted over with yellow to match.
Or sometimes the primer underneath looks pretty close to a weathered red.

You can check the date codes on the large cast pieces to get a better idea if anything was changed.
1963 and 1964 would be J and K. Everything was probably one or the other when it left the factory.

The list of date codes is here:
