CCCA Logotype

CCCA Approved Classics

The Classic Car Club of America defines a Classic as a “Fine” or “Distinctive” automobile, American or foreign built, produced between 1915 and 1948. Generally, a Classic was high-priced when new and was built in limited quantities. 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.

Only certain models of the following vehicles built during 1915 through 1948 are recognized as CCCA Classics: Be sure to check on the list of recognized cars to see if all models of a particular marque are accepted as Full Classic® cars.

* Cars prior to 1925 are currently under review.
