EX MILITARY, 6.2L DIESEL, AUTO, ARCTIC HEAT OPTION, JUST 16K MILES, GO ANYWHERE!
As most of us know, the mighty Humvee was originally created for military use, even deriving its name from a military acronym - High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle. Little by little over the years, through a series of redesigns and refinements, the once battle-ready vehicle got a little soft once introduced to the masses, even to the point of becoming little more than a fierce-looking grocery getter for some. Not so with this 1989 AM General M998 Humvee. Having LITERALLY served in the military, it's no common SUV, but rather an uncompromising vehicle outfitted for extreme conditions.
Fittingly, its camouflage green exterior has been left intact - considering this Humvee's history, no other exterior would do. Despite its faithful service in often rugged conditions, its exterior remains in surprisingly good shape, with no serious dings, blemishes or evidence of rust brought back from its journeys. Still in completely stock configuration, its canvas top and doors bear no rips or other signs of trauma, looking instead perfectly capable of putting in another stint should this Humvee be called back – one of the true benefits of having logged only 16,000 miles in its lifetime. This venerable vehicle was never about frivolity but rather functionality, and despite its relatively modest height it carries with it both impressive ground clearance as well as wheel clearance within its massive fenders. With a stance unparalleled in its width and that signature push guard up front, it's sure to draw admiring glances wherever it goes – not just for its looks, but for what those looks stand for. Authenticity is a rare commodity, after all.
Inside, you'll see more evidence of that authenticity. It's all about heavy duty use with this olive drab interior, with failsafe, rock-solid controls and surfaces impervious to the elements. Take your position in the driver's seat, and to the left you'll see the very place designated to safely retain the military- issued M-16 rifle still bears its label and the rest of the labeling throughout the cockpit retains complete legibility as well, including the maintenance tag delineating upkeep responsibility to the Maine Army National Guard. The instruments in front remain completely functional, showing only enough patina to serve as evidence to this unique vehicle's history. In front and in the second row, bucket seats equipped with water-resistant surfaces straddle the truss-like steel expanse of the tunnel between them, and the rear storage area looks like it could withstand anything it might come in contact with. The canvas interiors of all four doors still remain fresh with zip down plastic windows that still look completely clear – something plenty rare in just garden variety convertible tops.
Mechanically speaking, this Humvee is equipped for rugged dependable duty, regardless of exterior conditions. The entire drivetrain remains in an appropriate state of readiness for action, including a 6.2 litre diesel engine that fires right up and runs smoothly and a 3 speed automatic transmission that engages without incident. With its all-wheel drive and impressively sturdy 4 wheel independent suspension, there really isn't much that can stop this Humvee from moving forward. Another example of just how much sturdiness is built into this Hummer comes in the form of its dual battery, 24v electrical system, with one of the batteries designated solely for starting and the other responsible for powering all other functions. Four-wheel power disc brakes provide the stopping power needed for this substantial vehicle, which sits on its set of 36" stock rims that are wrapped with massive Goodyear R/T tires still showing plenty of tread life.
There are plenty of vehicles that can provide visual impact, but there are precious few whose very presence carries the meaning packed into this 1989 AM General M998 Humvee. Call today!
