American Powertrain, an industry leader of TREMEC transmission conversion kits for GM, Ford, Mopar and AMC, has now been named the 2018 Elite Performer by TREMEC Transmissions. The Elite Performer Award is given to the authorized TREMEC dealer that has the number one sales volume of TREMEC brand performance products for the year. The award was presented to Robert Hall, owner of American Powertrain at the 2018 SEMA Show by Nate Tovey, enthusiast marketing director for TREMEC.

American Powertrain formed in 2006, is an elite distributor of TREMEC aftermarket transmissions. The company has long been one of TREMEC’s top performing dealers in the world by becoming a one-stop shop for model specific overdrive transmission installation systems for classic muscle cars, trucks and hot rods. American Powertrain’s ProFit transmission installation systems are recognized for their superior fit and performance. With the company’s primary goal of making it easy to convert your classic car over to a modern overdrive transmission, and recognized by the company’s tag—Save The Stick, American Powertrain has grown sales by providing exceptional tech service support, top quality products and all the necessary components to install a modern, problem-free overdrive system.

TREMEC, established in 1964, began their performance aftermarket transmission line in the late 1990s that today includes T-5, 5-speed rear wheel drive transmissions, TKO 5-speed rear wheel drive transmissions, Magnum and Magnum XL 6-speed rear-wheel drive transmissions to retrofit early model vehicles with a late model overdrive manual transmission system.

Matt Graves, American Powertrain’s marketing manager, says, “This is an incredible honor to be given the Elite Performer Award. It’s quite an achievement for our company, and it speaks volumes about our staff that works tirelessly to help our customers get the custom kit that achieves their goals. If you are thinking about converting to a more modern overdrive, it’s best to start with a call to American Powertrain.”
