Welcome to the site! Congratulations on your purchase- should be a great car when your done.
The Special color could have been one of several, but if you are seeing pink, it was probably the pink mist color that was used then. Nancy Sinatra's car was a 68, and there was someone selling a 68 convertible a couple of years back that he said was her car, but there was never any proof.
I would start by ordering the PHS (Pontiac Historical Society) documents for the car. Google the web site, and it will tell you how. They will tell you all about the origin of the car, and what it was supposed to have out of the factory.
As far as special colors, if you use the search function on this site, you can look up a huge amount of info that has been posted through the years on here. Put in pink mist, or special colors or whatever else you want to look up.
Got any pictures of your car to post?
