How It Works

We make it simple and easy. Whether you’ve already picked out your dream car or truck, or want to secure financing before you start your search, we can help. We have a classic car loan or lease that is perfect for your situation. We can arrange funding for classic car transactions from $5,000 to $500,000. No matter what your needs, we have you covered.

Here are the steps:

First – Complete the on-line classic car loan application and click, “submit now” at the bottom of the page.

Second – A loan agent will request your credit report using one of the major credit rating companies (Equifax, TransUnion or Experian). We will contact you directly by phone at a time convenient for you to discuss the financing and leasing options available.

Third – Once you’re pre-approved, we will follow up to complete funding of the car you’ve picked out, direct you to one of our dealers, or locate the car you’re looking for!

There are no pre-payment penalties. If you buy a car and decide to sell it to take a quick profit, you’ll only pay interest for the time your classic car loans are active. Even if you intend to keep it forever, it nice to know you don’t have any restrictions should you change your mind.

Note that all of our loans are installment loans at a fixed rate. We don’t offer revolving loans.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our sister company, SW Dynamic Motorsports, is an advisory board member for the NADA Classic Car Guide. We use the NADA evaluation as a basis for determining value.
