Ever since the Pontiac brand bit the dust in 2010, the Chevy Camaro has become the default vehicle for those interested in Firebird Trans Am conversions.
Heide Performance Products (HPP) is one of the first aftermarket companies to start converting Camaros into Trans Ams and you can now buy their first such project, the 2010 HPP Trans Am.
Offered on eBay with an undisclosed reserve price, the vehicle started life as a 2010 Camaro SS and was then purpose built as a Pontiac Trans Am for the 2010 SEMA Show.
Owned by one of the original owners of HPP, this is one of only three Trans Am conversions the company made, two coupes and one convertible. Since the other coupe sold last year at a Barrett Jackson auction for $58,000, the seller probably expects to get more money since this car is fully modified inside and out while the other one only had the Trans Am body kit fitted.
At the time of writing, though, the highest bid was $17,500, which obviously does not meet the reserve. The auction ends on November 2 so there’s still some time left if you hurry up.
This particular car is the only one of the three made to feature all the options that HPP offered at the time for the Trans Am conversion. Those include the body kit with all body panels modified except the roof, a custom interior in red, white and blue that pays tribute to the Trans Am series, a Magnusson Supercharger that adds roughly 150 horsepower for a total of 576 HP, and a KW coil over suspension.
A one-owner vehicle with 26,061 miles (41,941 km) under its belt, this Pontiac Trans Am conversion comes with all original documentation and many of the original promotional materials.
