Navy Federal will issue loans on classic cars, but they will require it to be a personal loan. If you have access to Navy Federal through the military, or a family member that was in the military, this is a great option for a loan.
USAA can issue loans on classic cars, however we would advise taking a different route if possible. We have had several customers go through the loan process only to get denied in the end, and the loan process can be arduous and prolonged. Don’t be fooled by an easy preapproval.
