Hummer was a brand of trucks and SUVs, first marketed in 1992 when AM General began selling a civilian version of the M998 Humvee. In 1998, General Motors (GM) purchased the brand name and marketed three vehicles: the original Hummer H1, based on the Humvee; and the H2 and H3 models that were based on smaller, civilian-market GM platforms. The original Hummers were first designed and built by AM General Corporation, which was formerly AMC-Jeep's General Products division, in its Mishawaka, Indiana, assembly plant. The vehicles were created under a contract for the United States armed forces. The first model, the Humvee, was built in a variety of military-based equipment and versions. The US$1.2 billion contract won by AM General in 1983 was to produce 55,000 Humvees by 1985, which was later increased to 15,000 additional units. AM General had planned to sell a civilian version of the Humvee as far back as the late 1980s. Having the same structure and most mechanical components, the civilian Hummers were finished in automotive gloss paint, adding passenger car enhancements such as air conditioning, sound insulation, upgraded upholstery, stereo systems, wood trim, and convenience packages. The civilian model began in part because of the persistence of Arnold Schwarzenegger, who saw an Army convoy while filming a movie. In 1990, two matching white Humvees were driven from London to Beijing over the rough roads of central Soviet Union. The Hummers made the trip with ease, for they were built to drive on off-road terrain. The highlights of this journey were broadcast in the United States on CNN. This publicity would pale in comparison to the attention that the Humvee received for its service in Gulf War Operation: Desert Storm, the following year. Also, a privately-owned Humvee was modified into the first Snow-Vee, including the addition of caterpillar tracks, a new rear compartment and a new engine. This vehicle was designed for use in and just below the Arctic Circle, and the Antarctic. In 1992, AM General began selling a civilian version of the M998 Humvee vehicle to the public under the brand name "Hummer". The Hummer H1 is a civilian off-road vehicle based on the M998 Humvee, which was created by AM General. The vehicle was produced from 1992 through 2006, and was the first of what became the Hummer line. It was initially known only as the "Hummer"; however, in 1999 in a joint venture between General Motors and AM General, GM began marketing the Hummer H2, which was built on the Chevrolet Tahoe chassis. It was at this point that the original Hummer was given the H1 designation. For collectors, the most desirable model is the H1 Alpha, produced in the final model year of 2006. It had the most powerful engine and the best fuel mileage of the H1 vehicles. Overall, the H1 was a very limited production vehicle. "Originally designed strictly for military use the four-wheel-drive utility vehicle was released to the civilian market due to popular demand. Boasting 16 inches of ground clearance as well as super-aggressive approach and departure angles, the Humvee could clamber over a 22-inch high obstacle, handle a 60 percent grade and wade through up to 30 inches of water." Originally released in the civilian market in 1992, the Hummer H1 owed its birth to the popularity of photos from Operation Desert Storm and the enthusiastic campaign from actor-politician Arnold Schwarzenegger, who owns several variants of Hummer vehicles. AM General announced that 2006 would be the last model year for the Hummer H1, with production winding down in June 2006 due to a new emission law for diesel engine vehicles, which took effect in 2007. The Hummer H1 has three common variants: a convertible-like soft top, a four-door hard top Sport Utility Truck and an Alpha Wagon body version. Other less known variants include a two-door pickup truck, most commonly seen in the military sporting Anti-Air turrets and other launchers, or used as troop and cargo transports, and a four-door slantback, which shares the same body style of the Humvee employed by the U.S. Military. The convertible/soft top and the station wagon versions were the last ones available in the mass market. The two door and four door pickup versions are only available in fleet livery. Currently, five engine types and three automatic transmission types can be found in Hummer H1s. The common engine/automatic transmission combinations are: 6.2 L GM Diesel V8/GM TH400/3L80 3-speed 6.5 L GM Diesel V8/GM 4L80-E 4-speed 5.7 L Vortec 5700 gasoline V8 TBI/GM 4L80-E 4-speed 6.5 L turbo GM Diesel V8/GM 4L80-E 4-speed 6.6 L turbo Duramax LLY V8 turbo Diesel/Allison 1000 5-speed (model year 2006) The Hummer H1 shares some common driveline parts with its HMMWV brethren. Items like brakes, axles, frame and major body panels (hood, tailgate and quarter panels) are identical between the HMMWV and the Hummer H1. All Hummer H1s and HMMWVs come off the same

By most accounts, only 329 of the hand-formed bodied TR3s were ever built – known as the Triumph Italia 2000 Coupe. Designed by Giovanni Michelotti and built by Alfredo Vignale in Turin, under contract to Ruffino S.p.A. Industria Construzione Automobile of Naples – it was thought that these cars would appeal to people willing to spend more for the dependability and ease of obtaining stock mechanical parts, but who wanted a better looking car than the standard Triumph.” Salvatore Ruffino, managing Director of CESAC, the Italian company that distributed Standard-Triumph in Italy, approached Standard-Triumph to supply chassis and mechanical components to build 1,000 cars. The introduction of the closed-top, two seater was well received at the 1958 Turin Motor Show.” Vignale began production in July 1959 with only a few changes to the original. Although the two prototypes had some aluminum body panels, all Italias used steel. Ruffino envisioned building 1,000 cars, between 1960 and 1962. He had a verbal agreement to have every Triumph dealer (720) purchase an Italia. The Italia never became an official model of Standard-Triumph. However, Ruffino’s vision didn't come to pass for a number of reasons. Faced with ensuing financial and labor problems, Standard-Triumph was taken over by Leyland Motors in 1961. Shortly afterwards, Triumph withdrew their support for the Italia. Perhaps fearing increased competition, Triumph concentrated their efforts on the new TR4 to be released in 1962. The TR4, also designed by Michelotti, clearly borrowed many elements from the Italia. Despite Triumph pull out, Ruffino S.p.A. re-badged the car as the Italia 2000 and continued production. Over a three-year production period (mid-1959 to mid-1962) Vignale produced approximately 329 cars. Slow sales can be attributed to the expensive $5,000 price tag ($1,000 premium over the TR3) and since body parts were not stocked outside Italy, buyers were required to sign a release form of acknowledgment. (Wikipedia) - - - Der Triumph Italia war ein Sportcoupe mit italienischer Sonderkarosserie auf Basis des Triumph TR3. Der offizielle Name lautete Italia 2000 coupe. Salvatore Ruffino war 1958 Importeur von Standard-Triumph fur Italien. Er wollte ein eigenes Sportcoupe produzieren. Seine Wahl fiel auf einen von Giovanni Michelotti vorgelegten Karosserie-Entwurf. Triumph produzierte zu dieser Zeit keine geschlossenen Sportwagen. Ruffino lie? den Italia auf eigene Rechnung fertigen, d.h. es handelte sich nicht um ein offizielles Fahrzeug der Marke Triumph. Das Fahrzeug verwendete den vollstandigen Fahrzeugrahmen, Antriebsstrang und Achsen des Triumph TR3. Karosserie und die Innenausstattung waren eigenstandig und wurden komplett in Italien bei Vignale gefertigt. Durch die Coupe-Karosserie aus Stahl waren das Fahrgefuhl besser und die Stra?enlage deutlich stabiler als beim TR3. Die Produktion begann 1959. Die Fahrzeuge wurden vorwiegend in Italien, den USA und Frankreich verkauft. Fur Triumph war der Entwurf des Italia wichtig, weil Giovanni Michelotti, der zuvor schon den Standard Vanguard und den Triumph Herald entworfen hatte, nun auch den Auftrag fur das Design des Nachfolgers des TR3 erhielt. Im Aussehen des TR4 kann man viele Elemente des Italia wiedererkennen. Ruffino hatte geplant, insgesamt 1000 Italia herzustellen. Da es Probleme mit dem Vertrieb in Zusammenarbeit mit Triumph gab, wurde diese Zahl nicht erreicht. Man nimmt an, dass insgesamt nur etwa 300 Exemplare hergestellt wurden. 1962 wurde die Produktion mit dem Ende der Produktion des TR3B eingestellt. (Wikipeia)
