Default Vintage classic or just an old boat?

I have a 1974 Steury that my dad bought in 1974, it has a straight 6 chev 165 horse mercury out drive. It has always been kept under cover and up out of the water, interior is original and still in very good shape, chocolate brown, exterior is cream or off white, walk through windshield but not a bow rider. White tops, one goes half way back and the other the rest of the way, also has sleeper seats that lay down to a bed. I am brand new to this forum and was wondering if anyone knows if this boat would be a classic , vintage or just an old boat. Theoldboat

The ACBS (Antique and Classic Boat Society) classifies a boat made between 1943 and 1975 as a "classic". http://www.heartland-classics.org/ab...assifications/

I would put them in a classic category. I believe that have a decent following.

The link wasn't working...

Historic: A boat built up to and including 1918.
Antique: A boat built between 1919 and 1942, inclusive.
Classic: A boat built between 1943 and 1975, inclusive.
Late Classic: A boat built between 1976 and the year 25 prior to the current year.
Contempory: A wooden boat built within the last 25 years.

Notice that Late Classic does NOT say wooden. ACBS is officially welcoming the classic non-wood boats
