Antique, Classic & Customized Auto Insurance
Classic Car Insurance Requirements
Generally speaking, cars are considered antique once they are 20 years old. Classic and antique cars should be restored, maintained, and preserved or be in the active process of restoration. To qualify for classic or antique car insurance, a car must be used on a limited basis for events like car shows, parades, antique car club activities, exhibitions and be garage kept.
Custom cars are another breed. They are defined as having been modified with after-market features to make them more one-of-a-kind. These cars may have custom paint jobs, expensive wheels, and other alterations to make them unique.
Valuation of a Classic Car
While traditional auto insurance will use a “book value” to determine the value of a car based on make, model, age, and mileage, classic car insurance can be purchased at a predetermined value that will cover the replacement costs of the vehicle. There are also specialized pricing guides that can be used to help determine value.
