Miles to be considered a true classic

OK, so if I have the option of buying two cars:
car 1 is a 1989 with 97,000 miles (4,400 miles a year)
car 2 is a 1979 with 226,000 miles (7,000 miles a year)

If all things are equal -- production numbers, paint, maintenance, etc. is car one more valuable because of the lower yearly mileage average? or is the age of the car more important???

Also, at what yearly mileage number is a care deemed to be very valuable due to it's mileage? 1,000 miles a year? 5,000?

How about under 5000 miles total!

Everything else is a used car to be driven.
