    Default How classification of Old Cars work

    A little useless information for a Sunday morning

    Vehicle Classification

    Old vehicles are strictly classified in terms of year of production. An enthusiast will normally decide where he wants play and mainly stick to that field (year, model, make etc). There are exceptions however, depending on the size of the wallet. And it is not only cars; it is also motorcycles, trucks, busses and tractors that form part of the movement. The very basic differentiation is; vehicles produced before and after World War II. Thus we find a split of Pre-1945 and post-1945. However, not all cars will ‘qualify’ as a “collectable”. Aspects such as rarity, numbers, collectability etc will play a definite part, especially in the later year models in Classes E and F. The focus of Pretoria Old Motor Club is however to bring together people who own one or more of the above and share our enthusiasm with each other, irrespective of how collectable or expensive a vehicle might be.

    CLASS A: This is for Antiques built prior to December 31st 1904
    CLASS B: Veteran built between January 1905 & December 31st 1918
    CLASS C: Vintage built between January 1919 & December 31st 1930
    CLASS D: Post Vintage Built between January 1931 & December 31st 1945
    CLASS E: Post 1945 built between January 1946 & December 31st 1960
    CLASS F: Post 1960 built between January 1961 & December 31st 1980
