N100007,  “The Mario Andretti Magazine Road Test Car”, was delivered on May 26, 1966 from Fisher Body as coach #DD07D.  Like all F-Body Pilot Prototypes at Norwood, it started its hand built assembly in consecutive VIN number order as the seventh build of the engineering study.  One of one on Fleet and Special Order # 5A-24 made by Engineering Body of Design, it carried model # 12667.  This cream on black convertible was the third Camaro convertible ever built and the first with high performance options.  With a 350 cubic inch power plant and a standard 4-speed transmission, its presence in General Motors Proving Grounds photo shoots, as well as,  its documented use as the Mario Andretti Magazine Road Test Car…. this is  the most historically significant piece of early high performance Camaro history.   It was required to be received by C. Caswell at the General Motors Proving Grounds on or around June 10, 1966 for testing, but was shipped ten days late.  NCRS certificates show #7 being returned to corporate, Zone 0 and it is thought to have been used as a company promotional vehicle shortly thereafter.  Current whereabouts and existence is confirmed to exist as of 3-1-2015.
