N100005, “The 230 6-Cylinder 3-Speed Test Car”, was delivered on May 25, 1966 from Fisher Body as coach #DD04D. Like all F-Body Pilot Prototypes at Norwood, it started its hand built assembly in consecutive VIN number order as the fifth build of the engineering study. One of one on Fleet and Special Order # 5-4 made by Engineering Testing it carried model # 12367. This black on red convertible was the second convertible ever built. With a 230 cubic inch power plant and a standard 3-speed transmission, its lack of presence in photo shoots at General Motors proving grounds make it an elusive piece of Camaro history. It was required to be received by C. Caswell at the General Motors Proving Grounds on or around June 9, 1966 for testing, but was shipped one day early. NCRS certificates show #5 being returned to corporate, Zone 0 and it is thought to be 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.
