Yunbao (云豹) YB6480 1997
|Yunbao YB6480 is a Mercury Villager somehow (most likely, illegally) imported to China and then CKD-assembled by Guangzhou Yunbao.
I believe CKD assembly was just an imitation and these cars were completely built units.
Also, they could have been sold as Mercury while Yunbao emblems were just to demonstrate "local production" to government.
They didn't know that Mercury Villager LS is a 7-passenger minivan, not 6-passenger.
