N100014,  “The GM Jam Handy Video Plum Car”, was delivered on May 31, 1966 from Fisher Body as coach #DD17D.  Like all F-Body Pilot Prototypes at Norwood, it started its hand built assembly in consecutive VIN number order as the fourteenth build of the engineering study.  One of one on Fleet and Special Order # 5A-17 made by Engineering Body of Design, it carried model # 12637.  This plum with P/black coupe was the ninth coupe ever built.  With a 327 cubic inch power plant and a power-glide automatic transmission, its limited presence in the latter portions of the General Motors Jam Handy Video make it a highly desirable piece of early Camaro history.   It was required to be received by C. Caswell at the General Motors Proving Grounds on or around June 14, 1966 for testing, but was shipped six days late.  NCRS certificates show #14 being returned to corporate, Zone 0 and it is thought to have been used as the Pontiac Firebird development donor car thereafter. Please see below video for more information.  Extensive and exhaustive history searches have gleaned no documented ownership history.  Current whereabouts and existence is unknown as of 3-1-2015.
