We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although premium collector cars can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which can make getting approved for a loan difficult. Daniel Schmitt & Co. has developed relationships with financial institutions that recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need to get the car you are dreaming of. Take a look at our inventory and find the classic car you have been searching for. If you have any questions or would like to arrange a showing, don’t hesitate to call one of our consultants at (314) 291-7000.
