N100011,  “The Longevity Mule Video Car”, was delivered on May 28, 1966 from Fisher Body as coach #DD11D.  Like all F-Body Pilot Prototypes at Norwood, it started its hand built assembly in consecutive VIN number order as the eleventh build of the engineering study.  One of one on Fleet and Special Order # 5-2 made by Engineering Testing, it carried model # 12337.  This blue on blue coupe was the seventh coupe ever built.  With a 230 cubic inch power plant and a power-glide automatic transmission, its presence in the latter portions of the General Motors Jam Handy Video as the Longevity Mule Test Car make it a highly documented piece of early  Camaro history.   It was required to be received by C. Caswell at the General Motors Proving Grounds on or around June 13, 1966 for testing.  NCRS certificates show #11 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.
