The Hummer H1 was first launched in 1999 and to many, it was the “go-to” model when looking for a 4×4 utility vehicle. AM General ended all Hummer H1 production in 2006, and later in 2010 even the Hummer brand was shut down. It doesn’t affect its iconic status though as companies such as Mil-Spec Automotive create new vehicles based off of old platforms. Now a new company, Hummer1, is joining the revival game.
The team behind Hummer1 is even more specific as they only focus on the 2006 Hummer H1 Alpha – the last ever Hummer production model with just 729 examples and the only model powered by the gigantic Duramax 6.6-litre turbocharged diesel engine. The new company is keen on doing “body-off” complete restorations, which means taking the body off the vehicle and disassemble every component and part from chassis and powertrain to exterior body and interior. Every single part is examined then either replaced, rebuilt or restored to new original condition. So far Hummer1 has put a few restored H1 Alphas up on its website and they all look shiningly glorious.
