What is a Classic Car?
The term “classic” has a fairly broad definition within the auto world. It tends to vary among enthusiasts, insurance companies, licensing bureaus, and car clubs. Even DMVs vary from state to state!
At Woodside Credit, our definition of a “classic car” is any vehicle that is 25 years old or older.
In some circles the term is used to describe a specific model or production year. For instance, those great shoebox Chevys from 1955, 1956, and 1957 are typically referred to as “Classic Chevys.” Some car clubs, like the Classic Car Club of America, publish a list of vehicles that they deem acceptable for their classic car list.
All these discrepancies between sources can lead to some confusion when you are trying to determine if your car is a classic – or not.
These are the most widely accepted parameters – generally speaking:
Classic car – a vehicle that is more than 25 years old
Antique car – a vehicle that was manufactured prior to 1930
Vintage car – a vehicle that was built between the years 1919 and 1930
Your best bet is to defer to the authoritative source that governs what you want to do with the car. Classic car plates? Your local DMV can tell you if you qualify. Want to enter a classic car show? The organization that is sponsoring the event can give you the info you need.
Then again, if you just like “old cars,” that is perfectly fine too.
Private seller? No problem! You can still get classic car financing.
Classic car dealers are how many people find their older vehicles. If you’ve worked with other lenders, they may have even required you to go that route in order to get the loan so you’re doing business with a company and not an individual.
That’s all well and good, but what happens when you find that perfect car and the seller is a private party?
Other lenders might turn you away, but not Woodside Credit. We understand that you won’t always find your dream car at a dealership. It may be in someone’s garage or in a private collection. There’s no way we would stand in the way of you getting that sweet classic for your own garage.
Private sellers are no problem. We can make it happen. We are classic car lenders whether you are working with a dealership or the guy across the street.
