Car Insurance Question
#1
Called my insurance co today, they will not insure my 73 because it is in restoration "not running", has anyone had this problem and what did you do. Want to tag it so the locals won't complain about an untaged car being worked on!!

Interesting, I have mine insured through USAA and didn't hear that. Have you tried another insurance carrier?

Go to Hagerty or Heacock Insurance, who specialize in classic autos. When in restoration mode and not on the streets, only comprehensive is needed.

Most classic car insurance companys will insure a car in restoration mode as long as it fills their guidelines of collectible or antique cars.

Try
Condon and Skelly
Hagerty

Why does it matter if it is running or not?

Most insurances WILL not cover a car under restoration what it depends on is what percentage of the car is together..or where your at in the restoration stage..restoration means many things to different people..for some people a restoration is a paint job..What matters is how the insurance co defines restoration...& what their criteria is..Try these guy's http://www.jctaylor.com/ I have my camaro with them & for the same coverage they were HALF the price of hagerty.. If you can't get antique auto insurance it's a simple matter to get an umbrella policy on your homeowners or renters insurance just like you would for a piece of jewelery.

Allstate insured mine as comprehensive only (I think that's what they called the coverage) while it was in stroage many years. It was very cheap, like $20 every six months. This covered it if it was stolen or the barn fell on it. They did say the tag could not be on it.
