Throwback Thursday: A genuine Hummer H1… & only $105k!
We found this genuine Hummer H1 for sale on Facebook… and it’s epic!
Remember when the Hummer H1 was a thing? Even Arnold Schwarzenegger pedalled around in an H1 before he realised California was drowning in its own smog and he bought himself a Prius. Well, we reckon ol’ Arny would still be driving a Hummer if it weren’t for the political ambitions that led to his ascension to ‘Governator’ in 2003… but we digress.
For this week’s Throwback Thursday, we found this genuine Hummer H1… and for a lazy $104,990 it could be yours!
That’s right, this pristine example of the civilian-spec military beast is listed for sale at Pennant Hills Auto Traders in NSW. Apparently this low-kilometre H1 only has 33,000km showing on the odo. It’s powered by a turbocharged version of GM’s 6.5L V8 diesel, mated to a 4L80-E four-speed automatic transmission.
Features include dual fuel tanks, an auto tyre inflation system, a custom leather interior and a custom removable soft-top. That’s right! With summer on the way, you can whip the top off this bad boy and let everyone see who’s boss.
The interior of the Hummer H1 looks to be in great condition, although you’ll have to get used to the steering wheel being on the left-hand side. And despite its enormous exterior dimensions, the Hummer H1 only has seating for four… but check out the width of that centre console – now that’s elbow room!
Of course, the downside of all that width is the Hummer H1 is a bit of a bastard to drive around town and on tight bush tracks. I tested one many moons ago and as well as the fact it would hardly fit down most Sydney streets, outward visibility was appalling. Nevertheless, on the open road it was a hoot, and it was an absolute blast on the beach.
