Factory Replacement (?) Cannondale CAAD3

I have a bit of a mystery bike. It is a Cannondale CAAD3 with no model name written on the side but stamped 98 on the bottom.

It appears to be a mix between the 1997 R800 (CAAD 3)

1997 R800 (CAAD3)

And the 1998 R300 (CAAD2) paint scheme

1998 R300 (CAAD2)

Is it possible that this is a replacement frame and Cannondale no longer had the yellow paint from 1997 model line for the Viper Red fade to Speed Yellow (YVR) and chose to paint the frame with the 1998 model line Blaze Red Fade (BLZ)?
