1989 AM GENERAL HUMMER H1 CUSTOM SUV
This AM General Custom Hummer has been professionally restored with only the best parts, new or new-old stock. This build took a total of 600 hours to complete and includes many custom touches. It has a total of 1,000 test miles on it to ensure it truly is turn-key. The interior was completely stripped down and carefully planned out. Most, if not all of the hardware has been replaced. Four custom-mounted Corbeau seats accent the interior, with matching four-point harnesses using all stainless/brass hardware for durability. The interior is insulated with a thick coat of light Bullet Gray LINE-X. All electrical components have been gone though and operate as they should. Both 12-volt and 24-volt charging systems were run for ease of use. It took over 75 hours just to prep it for paint: two parts Dupont primer, two parts Dupont paint and two parts Dupont clear. The Metallic Gray color is found on the 2004 Ford Lightning. All the hardware was replaced with stainless using a Permitex barrier to stop corrosion. It’s also equipped with a custom Predator brush guard, front winch skid plate with a brand-new 12,000-lb Smittybilt winch up front and a windscreen light-bar mount. The wheels and tires are a set of new old stock BFG Military Spec 37.5s were mounted to two-piece 24-bolt 16.5″ wheels, disassembled and custom-painted gloss black. All documents and receipts come with purchase (in a 1″-thick folder). It’s powered by a 6.2-liter GM diesel engine with an automatic transmission.

Other features include 4-wheel disc brakes, 20″ wheels, power steering, air conditioning and all-new black interior with custom gauges and carbon-fiber trim. The look and stance of this muscle Mopar is truly amazing, as are the blue LED headlights, two nitrous bottles in the power-release trunk and pushbutton start. An awesome blue Mopar.
