Auto Forms Sport Roadster Convertible Firebird and Trans Am (1983 – 1986) Auto Forms was a company that popped up in the early 80's. They provided a custom conversion service to convert a normal Firebird or Trans Am into a 2-seater roadster convertible. Auto Forms was a company based out of Elkhart, Indiana that performed convertible conversions on Firebirds. It is believed the conversions began in 1983 and were performed through early 1986. Autoform was sanctioned by GM and as such did conversions on both Firebirds and Camaros. The conversions were performed at two different facilities: one in Indiana and the other in Shawnee, Oklahoma. The conversion took about two weeks and cost an estimated $7,500. Auto Forms worked directly with participating Pontiac dealers and did not accept customers off the street. New cars were dropped shipped to one of the facilities and then delivered to the dealer for delivery to the customer. Year by year production is also not known but is believed that about 1100 total cars were built between 1984 and 1986 including Firebirds and Camaros. The conversion used an extended rear decklid that extended through the rear seating are to the front seats. The decklid was formed with two bullet shaped bulges that sat immediately behind each seat that provided both support for the headrest but also served to enhance the euro style race car look. The decklid was comprised of a 2 layer fiberglass laminate and opened up and back from the front so the top could be retracted for stowage. The rear portion of the decklid functioned as a trunk lid swinging open an external chromed hinges support by the struts re-used from the original glass hatch. The design maintained the size and space of the original trunk. This unique roadster drives perfectly and will be the star of the show where ever it goes.
