Great Wall Motor Company was founded in 1976 by Comrade Wei Delian in Baoding City, Hebei Province, where its head office is still located.
Initially, its full name looked like Baoding Great Wall Automobile Company.
However, full-fledged production of cars began in 1984, and even then only nominally.
For example, in 1987, 355 cars were produced.
The production line at that time included the CC130 truck and the CC513 eight-seater station wagon based on the famous BJ212 chassis.
In 1989, Wei Delian had an accident, and in 1990 his son, Wei Jianjun, became the CEO of the Great Wall Motor Industry Company.
The young Wei initially had serious ambitions in the automotive industry.
He was incredibly fond of Japanese cars, so he studied all their subtleties.
He himself drove a Nissan Cedric Y30.
So, in the early 1990s, a certain photograph of a Japanese-style car appears with the name ChangCheng (Great Wall) on the grille.
In fact, this is a copy of the same Nissan Cedric Y30 that Wei himself drove. This model was called the Great Wall CC1020.
The next sedan was the Great Wall CC1020S, which is a copy of the Toyota Crown S130.
On this model, the Great Wall inscription has already appeared on the trunk lid.
Unfortunately, it is absolutely impossible to determine exactly in what year this model began to be produced.
As, however, it is difficult to determine when other little-known brand sedans began to be produced.
One thing is known for sure - this model appeared no later than 1996, when Western journalists noticed it on the streets.
Information about the years of production, powertrains and the number of cars produced is actually not publicly available, and it is doubtful that even Great Wall itself has it, because this part of the brand's history is simply forgotten.
And if we can still say almost with accuracy about the power units of cars made on the basis of the BJ212, then this is impossible to even assume about the engines in copies of Japanese cars.
It's just that the variability of a wide variety of power plants in the Japanese auto industry is truly enormous.
