1974 Hong-Qi CA-770 Red Flag Limousine
China's first manufactured car line is now represented in The Auto Collections at the Imperial Palace Hotel by "the Red Flag". "The arrival of the Red Flag in the United States is a historic first. China manufactured a limited number of Hong Qi in the 50's through 70's for dignitaries and other officials. It is said that when Richard M. Nixon requested his own vehicle be transported to Asia during his stay, the government of China insisted he use a Hong Qi based on its superior mechanical quality and functionality. The car is the very first collector car to ever be exchanged in the USA with China.
