1986 Pontiac Trans Am

This unique roadster drives perfectly 
J. J. Best Banc & Co.

Auto Forms was a company that popped up in the early 80s to provide a custom service to convert a normal Firebird or Trans Am into a two-seater roadster convertible.

Based out of Elkhart, Indiana, Auto Forms was sanctioned by GM and offered conversions on both Firebirds and Camaros from about 1983 to early 1986. The conversions were performed at two different facilities: one in Indiana and the other in Shawnee, Oklahoma. It took about two weeks and cost an estimated $7,500. The company worked directly with participating Pontiac dealers and did not accept customers off the street. New cars were drop-shipped to one of the facilities and then delivered to the dealer for delivery to the customer.

Year-by-year production was believed to be about 1,100 Firebirds and Camaros built between 1984 and 1986. The conversion used an extended rear decklid that extended through the rear seating to the front seats. The decklid was formed with two bullet- shaped pieces that sat immediately behind each seat to provide both support for the headrest and to enhance the euro style racecar look. It was comprised of a two-layer fiberglass laminate and opened up and back from the front so the top could be retracted for stowage. The rear portion functioned as a trunk lid, swinging open on external chromed hinges supported by the struts reused from the original glass hatch. The design maintained the size and space of the original trunk.

This rare roadster is in excellent condition with only 23,000 miles; it is in original condition and serviced regularly. There is a minor nick on the front spoiler. Wheels and tires are like new without nicks. The interior has new seat covers, leaving both seats in perfect condition.

This unique roadster drives perfectly and will be the star of the show wherever it goes.
