Dong Feng Golden Dragon CA71 Sedan

CDHQ-1026A

USD 99


In 1957, First Automobile Works (FAW) began the development of a passenger car according to the notice from No. 1 Ministry of Automobiles. The development team used only six months starting from November 1957 to finish the prototype vehicle named “Dongfeng”. Dongfeng has a streamline body, it can accommodate 5 passengers and has an air conditioning system. The body of the car was designed with Chinese cultural characteristics, carrying two “Red palace lantern” as rear lights and a golden dragon in the front hood, not to mention the characteristic red paint that filled the exterior of the car. Dongfeng was developed under harsh conditions, but despite there is no prior experience in passenger car production and the factory was poorly equipped, they still managed to replicate the engine of Benz-190 and the chassis of the French Simca to be used in Dongfeng, they even built most of the car body by hand. The success of Dongfeng provided a strong basis for the later on development of Hongqi. With the achievements of Dengfeng, Chinese car builders aimed bigger, they wanted to build a car with Chinese characteristic in the exterior as well as the interior, and hence the production of Dongfeng stopped after the production of the 30th car.
