Classic Car Imports to China

China may finally be on track to allowing classic cars to be permanently imported into the country. This September, Chinese lawmakers will hold talks to discuss opening up their borders to classic cars.

Currently, China does not allow the importation of classic cars for personal use or resale. Even international participants in classic car rallies through China are faced with a rigorous import process that takes months to complete.

Rumors of legalizing classic car imports have been around for years, but China's recent actions signal a change in their views on car import regulations.

Last April, authorities legalized the import of new cars to the Shanghai Free Trade Zone (FTZ) via a parallel car import project. Now, many expect a similar law that allows the importation of classic cars into the FTZ.

Chinese classic car enthusiasts and collectors may finally get a chance to import classic cars from the United States.
