N100003,  “The 250 6-Cylinder Power-Glide Test Car”, was delivered on May 23, 1966 from Fisher Body as coach #DD05D.  Like all F-Body Pilot Prototypes at Norwood, it started its hand built assembly in consecutive VIN number order as the third build of the engineering study.  One of one on Fleet and Special Order # 5-7 made by Engineering Testing, it carried model # 12537.  This white on black coupe was the second coupe ever built.  With a 250 cubic inch power plant and a power-glide automatic transmission, its presence at the Detroit General Motors unveil makes it a highly significant piece of Camaro history.  It was required to be received by C. Caswell at the General Motors Proving Grounds on or around June 7, 1966 for testing, but was shipped three days early.  NCRS certificates show #3 being returned to corporate, Zone 0 and it is thought to have been used as a company promotional vehicle shortly thereafter. Extensive and exhaustive history searches have gleaned no documented ownership history.  Current whereabouts and

existence is unknown as of 3-1-2015.
