Mil-Spec Creates a Hummer H1 Alpha in a Tuxedo
Mil-Spec Automotive, a high-end custom construction company located in Birmingham, Michigan, is back with another luxuriously threatening AM General Hummer H1. In accordance with all the constructions of the company, the finished product – it has a customer – is packed with finely worked details that slightly disconcert by their appearance in an H1: plush leather, machined accessories, high-end finishes, construction above and beyond quality, redesigned parts, technical upgrades and functional bling. Simply put, it excels in everything you never imagine doing with the civilian version of the unadorned military M998 Humvee, a platform that is noisy, functional and designed to be beaten and hit. The Mil-Spec H1 can hook up with supercars in VIP valet lots, hold out in a patriotic parade or travel the local track with a pack of 4×4 land platforms.
This Hummer H1 automotive Mil-Spec has proper propulsion in its 6.6 liter Duramax, which may remind you of the Hummer H1 Alpha of the 2006 model year. However, unlike the Duramax LLY 6.6 L and Allison’s five-speed Alpha, this Mil-Spec uses a V-8 Duramax LBZ turbodiesel 6.6-liter 500 horsepower, tuned to 500 horsepower, mated to an Allison six-speed automatic transmission. For reference, the Duramax LLY with the five-speed Allison ran in GM HD trucks for the 2004.5-2005 model years, followed by the LBZ with the six-speed Allison for the 2006-2007 model years. The ceramic underbody and the lining of the engine compartment protect the passenger compartment from excessive heat.
If locals want to take the undefeated path to an opulent dinner, the Mil-Spec H1 swallows a new 30 gallon wide range aluminum fuel cell protected by a steel skid plate. Underbody protection plates have been added to prevent damage caused by runway edge rocks or debris raised by fleshy Toyo 38×13.50R20 tires. The T6 aerospace grade tempered aluminum body is finished in an intense sky black polyurethane exterior coated with Kevlar infused with semi-gloss black powder accents. The Baja suspension group, which practically doubles the wheel travel to 13 inches, offers improved components such as reinforced front and rear ball joints and a stabilizer bar designed for long journeys.
The chic interior of this Hummer H1 Mil-Spec has a Nappa leather covering with distinctive quilted topstitching, while a group of custom gauges is fixed by anodized black glasses. The black powder coated aluminum door lock handles are a personalized touch that may be missed at first glance. The design of the machined flywheel echoes the key design; if you must have keys for your truck, they may as well fit inside.
Mil-Spec’s H1 can share a heritage and original assembly line from Mishawaka, Indiana, with its military cousin, but you’ll never realize it, and it proves that almost any vehicle can be turned into a symbol. luxurious status. If the platforms could be considered accessories with black ties, the Mil-Spec Hummer H1 is definitely on the list. As to whether an H1 should minimize its low, dirty side, we’ll leave that call to you.
