Question about 69 Camaro heater hoses...

Ok need some help. I am restoring a 69 RS Camaro Convertible. The car has 50,000 original miles on it and most of everything on the car is original numbers matching. I am wrapping things up in the engine compartment when I noticed the heater hoses are both red rubber hoses. My first thought was "why did someone replace the hoses with red ones?" However, I have been doing some snooping around and found a few pictures of low mile original Camaros that also have red heater hoses. So my question is, did these cars come factory with red heater hoses?

Usually red heater hoses are the standard Gates replacement hose. The Gates hose usually has a stripe on it to.
