The Camaro community fell into awe when the first-ever production Chevrolet Camaro was discovered after years of trading ownership. Its significance was unknown until the right people came along, verifying its unique stature in Camaro history.
Reading serial number 100001, this Camaro rolled out as one of 49 prototypes from the Norwood assembly, outside of Cincinnati, Ohio. After a long journey, it’s heading to preservation.
According to Motor Authority, The Historical Vehicle Association will display the Camaro at the 2016 Woodward Dream Cruise, encased in a glass cube for safe keeping from grabbing hands. Following its display, it will head to the HVA’s register, following guidelines set up by the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Heritage Documentation and the Historic American Engineering Record.
Be sure to catch a glimpse of this sliver of not only Camaro history, but American automobile history, too, before it heads off to its new home.
