N100048, “The #3 Pilot Line Assembly Research Car”, was delivered on June 14, 1966 from Fisher Body as coach #DD69D. Like all F-Body Pilot Prototypes at Norwood, it started its hand built assembly in consecutive VIN number order as the forty-eighth build of the engineering study. One of one on Fleet and Special Order # 5A-27 made by Manufacturing-Pilot Line, it carried model # 12367. This black on red convertible was the thirteenth and last Camaro convertible ever built. With a 230 cubic-inch power plant and a standard 3-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 F.R. Caffrey at General Motors Assembly Research on or around July 6, 1966. Our research and interviews show that of the three builds delivered to General Motors Assembly Research, this was the only car utilized as its title implies. It was the only build of the three under an individual fleet and special order #. It was the only build that was required at its destination with any urgency. In fact, the majority of all research was conducted at Norwood. This build was used by Flint Research Assembly to double check the findings gleaned by Norwood. The late build date and the existence of only one Flint Research Study substantiates our research. NCRS certificates show #48 being returned to Corporate, Zone 0 and it 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.
Note: See Pilot Statistics Page for help with explanation of research.
