Factory gasoline engines

Post by zoro » Wed Dec 07, 2022 8:15 pm

Ran into a local fire department that had a Humvee as their brush truck. They’ve had the truck since at least 2007 or so.

Weird this was it was gasoline powered and that’s the way they got it. They weren’t sure which engine it was an didn’t have time to pop the hood but they thought it may have been a V6.

So that begs the question, what motor would it be?

Maybe it was an H1 Hummer. 95’s had a gas engine.

I have seen quite a few H1 with military lights.
The local fire dept in IN had an H1 converted to fire truck.
Did you get any pics of it?

I did not. Literally the one time I’m not chained at the hip to my phone. I’ve never seen a true H1 up close but this one still had CARC paint on the inside.

Well understanding that the Army and USMC went away from gasoline with the switch to the HUMVEE from the MUTT back in the mid 80's... you will find it is not a military issue modification.
:D No fuel for it....

So they may have a clone (H1 with mil bits added) or a rebodied H1 chassis, or a re-engined surplus HUMVEE (most likely) it would be a V8 regardless.

US Gov did not order their newest vehicle in gasoline versions especially while transitioning to a 'one fuel' support chain.

Left off all the CUCV models too. Same time frame with the beginning of HMMWV. History Marches on.

In the early years of Hummer production they could be had in military flat colors, even the SCAPP pattern. Fire Depts love free stuff so it is probably a Humvee with a gas engine, but we may never know unless you go back and look.

You can go to the Lynch Hummer website, if it is still up. He had a great section that showed each years configurations and changes from year to year for the Hummer, later to be called H1. I have spoken with someone who has a Hummer that is in the 383 Green Color.
