Hummer Past and Present

The word “Hummer” is synonymous with “Durable.” Built to traverse any terrain from Icy Mountains to Desert Valleys, the Hummer is the military vehicle par excellence. A used H1 has vast potential as a recreational vehicle by itself, but Mil-Spec, of Wichita Kansas, is bringing the military classic up to modern standards.

The Launch Edition No. 003 begins with a four-door, hardtop pickup with a frame-off restoration in this new Launch Edition. They have added eight inches to both the front and the rear track. Inside they have put a 6.6-liter turbocharged diesel V8 engine which gives this great road dominator 500 horsepower and the power of 1000 lb-ft of torque. Inside the Hummer is marine-grade waterproof hand-stitched leather and a custom sound system and dashboard.

This arrangement of factory options displays a minimalist philosophy in the Launch Edition No. 003. It was built directly through the Mil-Spec Executive team as a showcase of the streamlined Launch Edition package. It is the first “factory direct” Hummer available directly to the general public by Mil-Spec Automotive. It is a satisfactory tribute to all the years of service the H1 has given, both public and private.
