How to Get Classic Car Financing

car financing at dealership

If you’re looking for a classic car around Englewood or Saddle River, you’ll also need to think about getting a classic car loan if you’re not able to buy the vehicle outright. The requirements are similar to getting a traditional auto loan, but securing a traditional loan on a classic car can be tricky. That’s why we’ve set out everything you should know.

Classic Car Financing: Bad Credit vs. Good Credit

You can sometimes secure an auto loan with poor credit, but classic car financing with bad credit is uncommon. As well as a good credit score, you should have:

  • Strong Credit History: A good credit score should come from a strong credit report based off a diverse selection of accounts. Think credit cards, mortgages, and personal loans.
  • Good Payment History: Have a record of paying your bills on time? Potential lenders might take that into consideration.
  • Steady Income: You should have a fixed income that shows enough money coming in to cover your payments.
  • Savings Account: Putting some money aside in a savings account shows a classic car isn’t an impulse purchase.
  • Insurance Coverage: As with traditional car loans, classic car financing requires proof of auto insurance.

Vehicle Requirements and Restrictions

  • Appraisal: Most lenders need the vehicle appraised to see how much it’s worth. You can hire a Ridgewood area vehicle appraiser for yourself for between $100 and $500. 
  • Age and Mileage Limits: Depending on the lender, your potential classic car may need to fall within certain mileage or age limits.
  • Inspection: Depending on the lender, the vehicle may need a full safety and quality inspection. You can always have it inspected beforehand by scheduling an appointment at a service center you trust.
