N100037,  “The 350 4-Speed Test Car”, was delivered on June 6, 1966 from Fisher Body as coach #DD53D.  Like all F-Body Pilot Prototypes at Norwood, it started its hand built assembly in consecutive VIN number order as the thirty-seventh build of the engineering study.  One of one on Fleet and Special Order # 5A-22 made by Engineering Testing, it carried model # 12667.  This color change turquoise on turquoise convertible was the eleventh Camaro convertible ever built and the second with high performance options.  With a 350 cubic inch power plant and a standard 4-speed transmission, its extensive presence in General Motors Proving Grounds photo shoots make it the most photographed build of the pilot program.  With the high concentration of color changes before and after this build in the pilot book, our research shows this build as an un-notated color change.  This is an important piece of early high performance Camaro history.   It was required to be received by C. Caswell at the General Motors Proving Grounds on or around June 20, 1966 for testing.  NCRS certificates show #37 being returned to corporate, Zone 0 and it is thought to have been 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.
