Humvees have been an iconic vehicle for the United States military for more than 30 years. When someone is asked what kind of vehicles the United States military has in its arsenal the Humvee would most likely be the first one to be mentioned.
Despite this, over the last several years, the iconic vehicle is being phased out of the military to make room for other vehicles, such as Joint Light Tactical Vehicles, to take its place.
Being able to purchase a Humvee is normally difficult for civilians. However, because of an auction through Gov Planet, purchasing your own Humvee just became a lot easier.
Gov Planet, a surplus government property website, is the official website that has the authority to auction off military vehicles.
The vehicles start for as low as $4,000 but can reach the price range of $35,000 for more well equipped Humvees.
Some Humvees are not street legal but there are several that are street legal, even though the process of getting it street legal could be difficult and varies state by state.
