The Definition of a Classic Car
As defined by the Classic Car Club of America (CCCA): Cars built after 1942 and up until 1948 are only accepted if they are nearly identical to prewar vehicles.

In the words of the CCCA: A CCCA Classic is a "fine" or "distinctive" automobile, either American or foreign built, produced between 1925 and 1948.

Generally, a Classic was high-priced when new and was built in limited quantities.


The Classic Car Club of America: Definition of a Classic car

The focus of the CCCA club is on the prewar, but this accepts that many cars built immediately postwar were actually the same vehicles as were available immediately before hostilities began.

Cars older than 1925 may be accepted if they are fundamentally the same as eligible vehicles built in 1925 or newer.

Other factors, including engine displacement, custom coachwork and luxury accessories, such as power brakes, power clutch, and "one-shot" or automatic lubrication systems, help determine whether a car is considered to be a Classic.
