Class One (Excellent):
Almost always a “body off” restoration, or an untouched, factory-perfect, piece that is very close
to perfect. All components are either original or appear as new and are fully operational. This car
is a top show winner and is not driven, but transported to shows by trailer. This car is almost “one
of a kind”. This particular class of vehicle is very rare. The vehicle is completely detailed,
including the engine compartment, interior trim, wiring, suspension, paint, and frame. Ideally, this
vehicle has been judged with other vehicles in its class and achieved the highest point ratings.
Class Two (Very Good):
This car is well restored with an eye for detail. The interior and exterior show minimal wear, and it
runs and rides smoothly. The car is driven very little (maybe 800 to 1,000 miles per year). This
class is a slight grade below Class One. A Class Two has not been detailed to the extent that a
Class One has been. This class (Class Two) has some evidence of use and wear, although not
very much. It is considered “cherry” or “mint”. This vehicle might appear as a Class One until
judged against one. It would not qualify as a 95, or better, “point” vehicle. (This class should have
no rust on the undercarriage, not even surface rust.)
Class Three (Good):
This is a functional, driveable vehicle in good overall condition needing no, or only minor work.
Most vehicles at car shows reflect this condition. This car is what is termed a “20 footer”. From 20
feet, it may look very good. Close inspection, however, would reveal some worn interior trim, and
less than perfect paint (worn, and perhaps faded). You may even see some early evidence that
surface rust is beginning in the body panels. This car is completely operational and is an “older
restoration”. It is driven fairly often, runs great, and is enjoyed by its owner. It is probably a
candidate for a full restoration. The undercarriage may display surface rust, and may be in need
of detailing. Chrome and trim may exhibit limited pitting.
Class Four (Fair):
This type of car is a fun “driver” with a solid frame and is structurally sound. This car is in need of
considerable work. It needs work in and out. Cosmetics, body, and mechanical components all
need work, to some degree. It is not a serious collector candidate. Soft floors, isolated areas
where rust has eaten through (but not structural), excessive use of bondo, lots of pitted chrome,
glass repairs are symptons of this condition. Badly soiled headliners, badly soiled and ripped
upholstery, rusted out trunks are also signs.
Class Five (Poor):
This type of car is in need of complete restoration and may, or may not, be able to be driven. The
exterior body panels have significant areas of rust-through. The floor and structural components
may, or may not, be intact. This car is usually the first project for layman’s attempt at restoration.
Class Six (Parts Car):
This type of car is good for parts only.
