N100028,  “The Electro-Maro Car”, was delivered on June 4, 1966 from Fisher Body as coach #DD40D.  Like all F-Body Pilot Prototypes at Norwood, it started its hand built assembly in consecutive VIN number order as the twenty-eighth build of the engineering study.  One of four on Fleet and Special Order # 5-9 made by Sales Convention Detroit, it carried model # 12637.  This yellow on black coupe was the nineteenth Camaro coupe ever built.  With all four Electrical Drive builds being ordered as “Omit Powertrain”, our research shows all four being delivered to the Technical Center approximately three weeks ahead of schedule.  This is derived from dated photos of the #5-9 build at the Technical Center, average elapsed time for all Pilot Prototypes at the Pilot Prototype facility, and the lack of storage space and allotted electrical drive build time.  This was the same program that brought us the Electro-Vaire.  This information was uncovered recently and is being released to the public for the first time by this website.  Prior to this release, no such program was known to exist.  A special thanks to the General Motors Heritage Center, our research team, and all interviewees arranged by author Phil Borris.    These four electrical drive builds are the single most historical technical builds in Camaro history.  NCRS certificates show #28 being shipped to Dworkin Chevrolet, Zone 2, shortly after the removal of the “Electric Drive” unit.  Only two of the Electro-Maro of the four builds is known to exist.  The full story of these four builds can be accessed by the link below.
