When AM General introduced the Humvee in 1984, it was expected that some people will convert the military vehicle for civilian use. Remember that we’re talking about the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle, not the GM-made Hummer H1, which was underpinned by a modified GMC 2500HD chassis.
Let’s begin with the essentials. Located in a little Dutch city called Geesteren, the seller says that the butch four-wheel drive machine was first registered in 1986, but it only shows 120 miles on the clock. How come? Well, the explanation is that every essential mechanical and electric bit has been rebuilt.
That’s how much this guy loves his American pickup truck. Both the engine and drivetrain have been rebuilt, while new bits and bobs include things such as: brake calipers and lines, suspension, shocks, alternator, brake booster, tires, oil cooler, water radiator, head wire and black box, solenoid valve and time module delay, steering wheel, dashboard and seats. That amounts to a heck of a lot of money, wouldn’t you agree?
There’s even LED lights at the front and side markers, for crying out loud! But the best bit of the deal is the asking price. An unarmored HMMWV cost around $65,000 back in 1986. Civilian conversion and restoration costs aside, have a guess how much this Dutchy wants for his pride and joy. Close but no cigar. In fact, the man asks just 35,000 euros for it, or roughly $45,960. That’s what we’d call a steal.
