N100015,  “The Crash Safety Car”, was delivered on May 31, 1966 from Fisher Body as coach #DD18D.  Like all F-Body Pilot Prototypes at Norwood, it started its hand built assembly in consecutive VIN number order as the fifteenth build of the engineering study.  One of one on Fleet and Special Order # 5A-18 made by Engineering Testing, it carried model # 12637.  This fawn with gold coupe was the tenth coupe ever built.  With a 283 cubic inch power plant and a standard 4-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 14, 1966 for testing.  NCRS certificates show #15 being returned to corporate, Zone 0 and the feasibility of its existence 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.
