Didn't Mr. Curtis have a position at Mullen, before becoming president of Imperium.
And of course now we ask, "Who will be the successor of Mr. Curtis, at Imperium?"
btw Imperium website seems no longer to be working.

Yes I mentioned about Imperium's sites not working above. Imperiumev works but imperiummotorcompany does not.

It's like a broken music record...heard and seen so many times before. And so, another one hits the dust.😟
I've lost count.
Now let's keep watch on the import tariff news......
and also let's watch to see how Vietnam's Vinfast, navigates the maze as it tries its luck.

I have seen a lot of Chang'an made minivans and pickups, but I can't recognize this odd vehicle, with the small side windows on the cab. Do you have a photo of a Chang'an model that this vehicle was derived from?
Tiger Truck once imported and modified Chang'an vehicles for years but none looked like these.
Is there possibly another Chinese maker is involved in these imports to the U.S....Wuling, Dongfeng, Jonway, Chang'he, perhaps?
If it is Chang'an only, then they have come in under the radar, as I have not seen any media outlet pick up on their presence in the marketplace?

That is a interesting point. I looked on auto-che and couldn't find a chang'an truck like this. This style of minitruck is the same as one made by Liangzi, but the front shape is different.

I will continue to search for this and let you know if I find anything.

Found this in a 200+ page service manual:
