N100018, “The 6-Cylinder Smog Pump Test Car”, was delivered on June 2, 1966 from Fisher Body as coach #DD25D. Like all F-Body Pilot Prototypes at Norwood, it started its hand built assembly in consecutive VIN number order as the eighteenth build of the engineering study. One of one on Fleet and Special Order # 5-8 made by Engineering Testing it carried model # 12567. This red on red convertible was the sixth convertible ever built. With a 250 cubic inch power plant and a standard 3-speed transmission, its minimal presence in General Motors photo shoots makes it a documented and important part of early Camaro history. It was required to be received by C. Caswell at the General Motors Proving Grounds on or around June 16, 1966 for testing. NCRS certificates show #18 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.
