Description

Originally designed strictly for military use the four-wheel-drive utility vehicle was released by AM Gernal to the civilian market due to popular demand. Boasting 16 inches (40 cm) of ground clearance as well as super-aggressive approach and departure angles, the Hummer could clamber over a 22-inch (56 cm) high obstacle, handle a 60 percent grade and wade through up to 30 inches (76 cm) of water.

It is also capable of towing a load weighing in excess of 7,500lbs (3,400kg). Powered by  a 6.5-litre V8 turbo-diesel producing 205bhp at 3,400rpm and delivering a mighty 440lb/ft of torque at just 1,800 revs, few cars offer the brute force offered by the H1. The Torque Trac 4 (TT4) transmission system incorporates a four-speed automatic gearbox, Zexel Torsen III torque biasing differential and reduction-geared hubs.

Built on the original military running gear, this H1 enjoyed a comprehensive restoration in 2002 based around its use as a promotional vehicle.  Described as being in very good condition throughout, the car incorporates a sound system which in itself is valued at over £3,000, along with TV screens and interior lighting.

These cars are fast becoming a rarity on the road, particularly in the UK and as an investment one would have to back them strongly as a future capital growth earner!  As imposing as it is rare, this H1 is sure to be great fun to drive and at a very reasonable estimate considering its price when new.
