Looking for a unique-looking ride capable of turning heads on the street while providing all kinds of good times conquering more rugged terrain? This 1988 AM General M998 Humvee has you covered. Built by the same esteemed manufacturer trusted by the military for its 4-wheel drive military truck and utility vehicle needs, this open-air workhorse has only logged about 30,000 miles and is ready to take you on miles and miles worth of future adventures - whether they take place on the asphalt or on paths less travelled.
With its unusually wide track - it's just under two feet wider than most Land Rovers - and substantial ground clearance, chewing up and spitting out whatever lies in front of this Humvee comes as second nature. Upon first glance you can see its resemblance to its more domesticated counterparts seen on the road, but this is the "straight, no chaser" version - it's not really meant to confer status (though indirectly it DOES do just that) but rather to dependably perform its service by tackling whatever comes its way. In spite of the obvious temptation to take this through some seriously unforgiving territory, it's held together well. You may find some badges of honor to chronicle its journeys on its rugged exterior, but nothing that would diminish your enthusiasm, and its blue rhino textured paint is another aspect that will allow this very appealing workhorse to stand out in a crowd.
As it's wide open both on the sides and on top, the interior is on full display and you can see that it, just like the rest of the vehicle, is all about rugged, utilitarian functionality - the Humvee is a purpose-built military vehicle, after all. With the exception of the dash area, the interior features the same distinctive rhino textured blue paint featured outside and gray cushions set over the automotive equivalent of box springs make up the seating up front - you can't get more rugged than that. The transmission tunnel is unusually broad - there's a good three feet separating driver and passenger - and as the tunnel gives way to the dash area up front, you'll find the well-preserved badging attesting to this vehicle's authenticity. The bed area in back offers all kinds of cargo space - the boxed-shaped wheelhouses are set so far apart you could likely fit another vehicle between them. In front of the aftermarket steering wheel, the instrument cluster houses a quintet of gauges that are both easily readable and still functional.
With its substantial displacement and diesel-fueled design, the 6.2 liter V8 sitting in the engine bay has all the stump-pulling torque you'd need to conquer any obstacles that may lie in your path. It's in strong running condition, teaming with a 3-speed automatic transmission as surefooted 4-wheel drive capability stands within easy reach. There are power disc brakes at all four corners, so an afternoon's worth or more of spirited stopping will be no problem as this automotive icon rolls forward on its set of sizable black painted stock wheels outfitted with Goodyear Wrangler tires. A look below at the undercarriage will confirm that it's come through the years in strong fashion.
