N100035, “The Super Sport Chicago Convention Car”, was delivered on June 6, 1966 from Fisher Body as coach #DD58D. Like all F-Body Pilot Prototypes at Norwood, it started its hand built assembly in consecutive VIN number order as the thirty-fifth build of the engineering study. One of three on Fleet and Special Order # 5-12 made by Sales Convention Chicago, it carried model # 12637. This turquoise on black coupe was the twenty-fifth Camaro coupe ever built. With a 350 cubic inch power plant and a standard 4-Speed transmission, its lack of presence in General Motors photo shoots make this an elusive piece of early Camaro history. It was required to be received by J.C. Stephens at Chevrolet Janesville in Wisconsin on or around August 8, 1966 for photo shoots. Because of the extremely late “Vehicle Required at Destination” date, our research and interviews have shown that all Pilot Prototypes still in storage at the Pilot Prototype facility were used as assembly test mules. NCRS certificates show #35 being shipped to the Dworkin Chevrolet, Zone 2. Extensive and exhaustive history searches have gleaned no documented ownership history. Current whereabouts and existence is unknown as of 3-1-2015.
Note: See Pilot Statistics Page for help with explanation of research.
