To help in understanding, here’s a handful of the key differences between a classic, antique, and vintage automobile.
Cars or trucks that are around 20 to 40 years old are considered classic automobiles. These vehicles are maintained as close to the original specifications of the manufacturer, otherwise, they fail to qualify as a classic.
There are chances of confusion between a classic and antique car, but an antique car is older. Usually, cars that are over 45 years old are considered antique. Similar to classic cars, the antique car should be maintained in conformance to its original specifications.
Usually, cars manufactured between 1919 and 1930 are considered vintage cars, the cars from the early days of motoring. Of course, the automobiles should be in keeping with the original manufacturer’s specifications.
