Hongqi At Blackhawk Museum

I've always been fascinated with Hongqis. Bring A Trailer recently featured the first one exported to America. It is now displayed at the Blackhawk Museum.

The Hongqi CA770 was parked next to one of JFK's Continentals. Surprisingly, the Continental looked puny next to the Hongqi. The Chinese limo looked taller and bigger overall. Though it was a 1970s model, it still had wind-up windows. The red hood ornament and fender badges looked like they were made out of Bakelite.
