THE HUMMER H1

Not just another 4x4, the Hummer (or 'Hum-Vee') is an all-terrain vehicle in a class of its own, as capable off the road as it is imposing on it. The Hummer owes its existence to the US Army's requirement for a 'go-anywhere' workhorse and was first seen in prototype form in 1980. Builders AM General were given the go ahead for production in 1985, and since then, more than 150,000 have been delivered to US and other armed forces.

In 1991 AM General made the inspired decision to offer this remarkable vehicle for public sale. Apart from additional creature comforts, the civilian Hummer is virtually indistinguishable from its military counterpart. The Hummer's astonishing off-road capability is enough to make owners of lesser 4WDs green with envy: 22" (56cm) vertical rock ledges, 60-degree upward gradients, 30" (76cm) of water, 3' (91cm) snowdrifts and 40-degree side slopes all being taken effortlessly in its giant stride. It is also capable of towing a load weighing in excess of 7,500lbs (3,400kg).

The power unit is a 6.5-liter V8 turbo diesel producing 205bhp at 3,400rpm and delivering a mighty 440lb/ft of torque at just 1,800 revs. The Torque Trac 4 (TT4) transmission system incorporates a four-speed automatic gearbox, Zexel Torsen III torque biasing differential and reduction-geared hubs. This powertrain is mounted in a steel box-section chassis featuring all-independent suspension, power-assisted steering and power-assisted ABS-equipped disc brakes all round, while the coachwork is manufactured from aircraft-grade aluminum alloy.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This potent Hummer H1 HMCS was completed at the South Bend, Indiana based AM General Corp plant in April of 1996. Finished in white over beige interior - just as it appears today - the car was delivered new to California in September 1996, as would remain there until 2015, when purchased by the consignor, a prominent Reno, Nevada based car collector. Used for trips to Lake Tahoe, the car has been serviced and maintained, including fitment of new Goodyear Wrangler tires about 3,000 miles ago, and remains in well preserved condition. Today, with just over 70,000 miles are recorded on the odometer. An automotive icon in its own right, the Hummer H1 is like nothing else on the road, and here is an opportunity to acquire a well-kept, unmodified example.
