For sale is a clear NJ titled, M998 HMMWV that has been modified, updated in accessories and repainted. When purchased, it was a real plain Jane; I received no doors, no roof, no rear seats, driver sear only, driver mirror only, and a faulty engine. Many HMMWV sellers fix the apparent problems, paint, and resell. This is definitely not the case here. Various pictures show different configurations based on the event attended. Closest thing to a frame-off restoration without lifting the body. This will appeal to a certain type of individual who wants to stand out from the rest. Currently painted green. Have paint to go back to tan.

The truck was initially green and was painted desert tan for movie shoots. Inside is still green as outside paint was only needed. It is currently green for an ad campaign just before I left for FL and will paint back to dessert tan before sale unless you want green. $1000 at time of sale via PayPal, and balance due within 10 days. Vehicle given when check clears unless cash. Buyer is responsible for shipping of parts and vehicle. Once it leaves the barn, it is yours so take your time inspecting.

I have the right to cancel this sale as I have listed this in numerous places.

The HMMWV is available for inspection Email for an appointment. Peter.schindo@gmail.com. All questions will be answered then unless you purchase without inspection. First come buys it.
