N100016,  “The 327 Power-Glide Test Car”, was delivered on June 2, 1966 from Fisher Body as coach #DD21D.  Like all F-Body Pilot Prototypes at Norwood, it started its hand built assembly in consecutive VIN number order as the sixteenth build of the engineering study.  One of one on Fleet and Special Order # 5A-19 made by Engineering Testing, it carried model # 12637.  This turquoise on turquoise coupe was the eleventh coupe ever built.  With a 327 cubic inch power plant and a power-glide automatic transmission, its presence in photo shoots at General Motors Corporate Facilities 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 16, 1966 for testing.  NCRS certificates show #16 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.
