We’ve Got Hummer Touch Up Paint
This automotive brand is named after the civilian version of the “High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle” or more commonly called, the Humvee. This type of four-wheel drive vehicle has come to supplant the original Jeep in terms of military use but, just as its counterpart, the vehicle quickly made the switch into the civilian market. Its notoriety was mostly gained during the first Gulf War as it navigated the hazardous terrain with ease.
American Motors’s military division AM General was the first company awarded with the U.S. Army contract after submitting a satisfactory prototype. The first “batch” of Humvee’s were delivered to the military in 1985, but the Hummer were only available to the public consumption in 1992. Then, in 1999, GM purchased the rights to market and distribute the Hummer brand.
For the time being, AM General maintained the Hummer production line for GM. The new holder of the Hummer brand soon decided to introduce new models to the public, the H2 and H3. This prompted GM to retrospectively rename the first model H1. While the H2 was narrower than its predecessor, it was longer and higher. However, the smallest of the Hummer line was the H3. This model, the only completely build by GM was designed to fit on the GMT355 platform, also used for the Chevrolet Colorado and the GMC Canyon.
Unfortunately for the brand, when the 2008 financial crisis hit the U.S., Hummer fell under GM’s reorganization plan. Although a couple purchasing offers were made, ultimately all the deals fell through and the brand was eventually discontinued in 2010. Even though the brand called it quit, it’s not a reason to give up on your Hummer. All you need to restore it is a little bit of TouchUpDirect’s quality Hummer touch up paint. Our paint is as versatile and as durable as this tough vehicle; it is almost a match made in heaven.
