N100006,  “The Corrosion Test Car”, was delivered on May 26, 1966 from Fisher Body as coach #DD06D.  Like all F-Body Pilot Prototypes at Norwood, it started its hand built assembly in consecutive VIN number order as the sixth build of the engineering study.  One of one on Fleet and Special Order # 5-13 made by Engineering Body of Design it carried model # 12637.  This primer on black coupe was the fourth coupe ever built.  With a 283 cubic inch power plant and a power-glide automatic transmission, its lack of presence in photo shoots at General Motors engineering center make it an elusive piece of Camaro history.  It was required to be received by V. L. Donahue at the General Motors Chevrolet Engineering Center on or around June 10, 1966 for testing, but was shipped five days late.  NCRS certificates show #6 being returned to corporate, Zone 0 and the feasibility of its existence afterwards is currently unknown. Extensive and exhaustive history searches have gleaned no documented ownership history.  Current whereabouts and

existence is unknown as of 3-1-2015.
