GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1983 AM General HMMVW M-998 military vehicle! This Humvee is a former U.S. government vehicle and has been decommissioned and in the hands of 3 other members of the public as a collector vehicle. It can be titled and is street legal. It features a 6.2L fuel injected diesel V8 with a 3-speed automatic and a 2-speed chain driven transfer case. This example retains all of its original drivetrain with only 11,000 miles of use. Keep in mind this is a former military vehicle so it is very spartan with no power driving aids or power convenience features but it is one of the coolest vehicles on the road today.

In 1979, AM General began preliminary design work on the M998 Series High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV). The U.S. Army awarded AM General a prototype contract in 1981 and the development and operational testing was conducted over a five-month period in 1982. In March 1983, AM General won an initial $1.2 billion contract to produce 55,000 Humvees to be delivered over a five-year period. The Army subsequently increased their order with over 15,000 additional vehicles, raising the total contract order to 70,000 Humvees valued at $1.6 billion.

The Humvee offers exceptional speed, mobility and agility and is built upon a multi-purpose platform which will accommodate a broad range of configurations. Humvees feature full-time four-wheel drive, independent suspension, steep approach and departure angles, 60 percent gradeability and 16 inches of ground clearance. Humvees are currently in use by the U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Air Force and Navy at locations throughout the United States and overseas.

It features all of the off-road goodies you would expect that the warriors of the U.S. government would need in the field traversing unpaved terrain. It has a canvas convertible top as well as canvas doors with zip out windows. It also features HID headlights and LED taillights for a modern touch. Included in the sale is a U.S. government certificate granting the right to title the vehicle for use on public roads and a matching single axle trailer as pictured. This vehicle was driven to our Wixom facility from over 200 miles away so it is very road worthy and would make an absolutely perfect off-road vehicle or for promoting your business. Call now.
