1999 Hummer H1 Wagon

Inside a 1990s-vintage Hummer, fit and finish and quality of materials rival only those vehicles built under Eastern European Communist regimes; think gargantuan all-wheel-drive Trabant

Not just another 4×4, the Hummer is an all-terrain vehicle in a class of its own, as capable off the road as it is imposing on it. The Hummer owes its existence to the U.S. Army’s requirement for a “go-anywhere” workhorse, and AM General was given the go-ahead for its production in 1985, since when more than 150,000 military examples have been delivered. In 1991, AM General made the decision to offer a civilian version, virtually indistinguishable from its military forebear.

This left-hand-drive Hummer H1 Wagon with five-door wagon coachwork was exported from the U.S. to Germany and registered there before being shipped to Italy, where it is believed to be the only example of its kind. Finished in anthracite metallic with charcoal leather interior, and equipped with dashboard-mounted GPS and almost every conceivable luxury feature available, it has covered just 13,395 miles from new and is presented in mint condition.
