N100036, “The 6-Cylinder Jacksonville Convention Car”, was delivered on June 6, 1966 from Fisher Body as coach #DD52D. Like all F-Body Pilot Prototypes at Norwood, it started its hand built assembly in consecutive VIN number order as the thirty-sixth build of the engineering study. One of three on Fleet and Special Order # 5-10 made by Sales Convention Jacksonville, it carried model # 12337. This gold on gold coupe was the twenty-sixth Camaro coupe ever built. With a 230 cubic inch power plant and a standard 3-Speed transmission, its presence in General Motors photo shoots, its impressive ownership history, make this an important piece of early Camaro history. It was required to be received by R.J. Jones at Chevrolet Atlanta 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 #36 being shipped to R.T. Ayers Chevrolet, Zone 23. One of three Pilot Prototype builds ordered by Mr. Ayers… he holds the distinction of being the first Camaro collector to exist. Recognizing the significance of the hand built Pilot Prototypes, he requested and received the first and last build, as well as, #36. These cars sat on his showroom floor as part of his collection and were used to sell and promote the new model. He achieved this through his relationships with top brass at General Motors. A full biography of Mr. Ayers can be viewed on the N100001 video. Extensive and exhaustive history searches have gleaned all documented ownership history.
