I have "Orange Beefheart". Don't know if that's Amish, but the reference cited by @heirloomgal lists it as similar to "Orange Oxheart". I'd be happy to send you seed, Seed. ;) Just PM if you would like to try it.
Trying to find data on Orange Beefheart. Striking out so far.

Interesting topic, I just saw a list of tomato varieties.

Thank you for posting this @Phaedra Geiermann ! I was looking for this table! I found a site I found with the link to this, but the link was no longer functional so I gave up. This is a valuable list because orange tomatoes can be orange more so through high beta carotene, and how would a person know which one is which? (I initially thought that so long as the tomato was orange it was high in cis-lycopene.)

Orange Beefheart
With quick Googling, all I come up with is a French and an Italian website translated into English with that term. Phaedra's link has information on an Orange Oxheart and Tomato Growers sells seed for one with the same name.

I've never grown any oxheart. Always seemed like sauce tomatoes, to me. I've grown precious few paste tomatoes ;).

Once again, I feel that I'm somewhat off the mark ...
