A car is considered a classic in Illinois if it's at least 25 years old and has been unaltered from the original manufacturer's specifications. When a vehicle in Illinois meets these requirements, the owner can register it as an antique vehicle, which will limit the car’s use. Specifically, classic cars in Illinois can only be used for antique auto shows, exhibitions, servicing, and demonstration.
