The Hummer H1 is the undisputed king of the off-road utility vehicle, the military-turned-civilian transporter that is comfortably able to journey further and further into the abyss with capability to spare. Just before production ceased on these legendary machines in 2006, Hummer released just 729 examples of the upper-echelon Alpha: a take-no-prisoner, fully-loaded version with an upgraded 6.6L Duramax diesel V8 mated to a heavy-duty Allison 5-speed transmission.
With low production numbers, the Hummer H1 Alpha is a rare find and a centerpiece of a well-rounded 4x4 collection. This particular example for sale from renowned seller Bruce Canepa should immediately draw attention from savvy buyers, as it shows in wonderful condition and sports just over 28,000 miles and has recently found itself released from a prominent collector.
Plus, the removable soft-top offers a quite a bit more rarity and fun to the equation, making it one of just 276 total open-top examples produced.
What is a Hummer H1 Alpha?
The Hummer H1 is a civilian iteration of the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV), or Humvee. While it was originally produced for combat, the Humvee earned a spot in the heart of Americans as it was seen taking on the rigors of the Persian Gulf. So, starting in 1992, AM General began offering the Hummer. General Motors took over brand rights in 1998 and added the H1 designation, while later spinning off the H2 and H3.
Throughout its production run, AM General made 153,000 total H1s. When production was set to end in 2006, AM General gave the Hummer H1 a final tour of duty with a fully-loaded iteration called the Hummer H1 Alpha.
Only 729 of the H1 Alpha were produced, and they were the only examples offered with the upgraded 6.6L Duramax turbo-diesel V8 motor, which was mated to an equally-impressive Allison M74 5-speed automatic transmission. They also gave it a more powerful steering gear, quieter axle differentials, redesigned geared hubs to use quieter helical gears, and a new reworked fuel supply and filtration system. Finally, they reinforced the chassis with special high-strength steel in the frame.
