Chassis number 137PH84356E233980 is one of them, and it’s arguably collectible based on four aspects. First, the odometer reads just under 19,200 miles (30,899 kilometers), mostly accumulated on the road.
In addition, the history report does not show any accident or damage. Although there are imperfections on the sills and exterior paintwork, the overall condition of this off-road icon is very good. And finally, the factory engine control module was replaced with a Predator RapTorq unit. Last serviced with fresh oil and filters in September 2021, the black-on-black H1 Alpha is listed on Bring a Trailer with a high bid of $ 145,000.
The auction ends on Tuesday, leaving enough time for the hammer price to pass the $ 150,000 mark. Considering the original MSRP of $ 139,771 and the tasteful upgrades to this platform, that’s a pretty fair sum.
The Alphas get their mojo from the Duramax 6.6-liter turbo diesel V8 instead of the Detroit Diesels found under the hood of early H1s. Originally rated at 300 horsepower and 520 pound-feet (705 Nm) on the stock control unit, this man certainly has enough torque for the one-size-fits-all shenanigans.
Offered with the factory ECM, numerous manufacturer documents, service records, and a proper title to the seller’s name, 137PH84356E233980 makes the point with 41-inch tires wrapped around 17-inch bead wheels. A 2.0 inch lift, tire inflation system, spare wheel on the roof rack, brush guard, winch, and aftermarket rear bumper should also be mentioned.
Upholstered in black leather with white piping and Alpha stitched backrests, the four-seater wagon still displays the original CD stereo, Motorola cell phone and CB radio. With the air conditioning recharged for sale, this wonderful Alpha-spec H1 is fully prepared for the great outdoors.
