This may help from Hamtramck Historical:

Citron Yellow GY3 was #12 in popularity in 1971  w 4.2% of total Challenger production.

The other yellow Challenger in 71:   FY1 @ 1.3%

The most chosen Challenger color in 71: Blue  GB5 @ 12%, w Plum Crazy FC7 close at 10%

And total Challenger production was around  23,088   So 4.2% of 23.088 is about 970 cars....   

And R/T production was 4,680 which is slightly less than 20% of total production.... So you might guess that 20% of 970   (194 cars) would be close... But often high impact colors were more common on R/T's then on standard cars....  So maybe 200ish...

Taking "wild RT's' guess-tament: of 20% RT production of 1269 cars would be about  252+ EL5 RT cars / Butterscotch.
