RideLust Find of the Day: 1997 AM General H1

Posted in 4x4, eBay Motors, Hummer, SUV by Suzanne Denbow | January 4th, 2010 | 4 Responses |


For those of you elitists with things like a “steady job” and “benefits,” you probably received a hefty Christmas bonus with your paycheck last month. The wisest move would be to invest it, but ask yourself this: can a high-yield savings account scale a vertical wall? Of course not, which means your most logical course of action would be to scour eBay high and low for the most impractical (and possibly by that very quality, totally badass) purchase. Since it was an excruciatingly slow news day, I took the liberty of doing it for you.

Available for a cool $40,900, this 1997 Hummer H1 is in excellent condition with only 7,600 miles on the odometer, indicating the previous owner was either a professional athlete, a rapper, or an exorbitantly wealthy soccer mom. The engine is 6.5L V8 turbo diesel that churns out 195 horsepower, which makes it perfectly suited for all the rock crawling it won’t be doing as it sits in your garage in your gated community. For those days when you want to feel the wind in your hair plugs, this particular H1 also comes with a fully detachable roof and enough interior seating for at least four ladies of ill repute.

On the off chance that you plan on buying it and using it for the purpose for which it was intended, it also comes with all that off-roading crap the Jeep fanboys ramble about. Just go read the listing or something.

    This is about as discreet as an AC/DC concert.

    This is just about the only Hummer branded item that won’t immediately get you branded a tool (by anyone who knows his ass from a hole in the ground, anyway), but its current state of pristine cleanliness works against it in that regard. I’d love to have this as a third car, if I could even remotely afford it.

    One minor quibble with your article, though. “…and enough interior seating for at least four ladies of ill repute” simply isn’t accurate (unless one of said ladies is driving), as anybody who’s ever been in an H1 can attest. Despite its huge exterior dimensions, the interior contains four very narrow seats situated two on either side of an unbelievably large “table” that encloses the drivetrain components (think of the “doghouse” engine cover on an old forward control van, only running the entire length of the interior). I was surprised when I sat in one (back when I weighed about a buck thirty) how incredibly tight the seats were.

    Upon reading the ad, I have to wonder who would buy a used car from a dealer who thinks a Delco cassette deck is “premium” and who can’t tell the difference between steel and alloy wheels (unless he’s clinging to the technicality that steel is an alloy).
