In the United States, classic cars feature production between the years 1925 and 1948; their production includes the United States and international locations. Classic cars fall into one of several classes of cars, depending on the number of classic features possessed. Classification, determined by the Classic Car Club of America, considers quality of design, engineering and operational systems, when assigning car labels.
The CCCA rates classic cars as Full Classics or simply Classics. The CCCA considers engine performance, components such as brakes, clutches and lubrication systems, when identifying cars, along with type and quality of cabin materials and quantity of luxury features. Price and quantity also distinguish classic cars; those fetching high prices and having limited production typically rank higher on the Classics list.
