    I've had very good experience with Hagerty, but as stated, this has been discussed before, do a search.

  5. Give GRUNDY a call
  6. Nothing unusual with the regular daily driver car insurance company's.

    Hagerty,Grundy,ANPAC (Chrome insurance) are 3 of the best. HRP

    ive had cars through hagerty and grundy but never had a claim. early years state farm also, daily drivers, same thing no claims. a steel willys should be handled through one of the agreed value companys like grundys or hagertys you supply them with reciets and build sheets and a basket full of money and they will insure it. good luck

    Yea they are offering 50k at state farm but it would take 100k plus to replicate this car today.

    if you're 50+, aarp will insure for agreed value. i have a 72 nova and 50 ford and they charge $100/year for each. never made a claim, so... and, of course they limit mileage to something like one or two thousand yearly.
  12. Got the Model A insured with GRUNDY, great price!
  13. Another GRUNDY customer here!

    Haverty and Grundy are good but Grundy is much cheaper. I like to go through an agent instead of buying on line in case of a problem I will have someone to go eyeball to eyeball with.................

    When you are looking for an insurance company to insure a car for 100K I don't think you would look to AARP for a cheap rate. You really need to read the fine print on mileage, usage, where it's parked etc. When you get up over 30-40-50K you need to find a company that really deals in high end cars and has a very good reputation.

    Grundy,great price,no mileage limit. Friends that had claims have been more than pleased with their quick service and no hassle. Look into it.

    No claims, but thumbs up for Grundy.
    Have 3 insured, & when I call, a human answers phone & adding a policy takes like 3 minutes. ( or online).
    They ask me what replacement costs are.
    They email proof of insurance instantly.
    & I think it's dirt cheap & reputable Company.

    THE HAMB SEARCH function sucks that's why!

    Then someone always bitches about bringing up an old thread, because they actually found something with the search

    Switch to Allstate,Hagerty underwrites all of their antique stuff and I've found both companies very easy to deal with.

    Search worked for me.
    The positive posts in favor of Grundy on this and other threads have swayed my vote.

    I have Hagerty and have made a couple of claims and was amazed at how fast and easy it was.

    Here is another plus when using Grundy. If you insure your antique car with them they will also cover your daily driver at a much lower rate than a normal insurance carrier. Ask them about covering your daily driver and see how much $$$ you will save.

    I use American Modern Home/Classic Automobile Insurance. They have "agreed value" policies, reasonable rates without the "only for pleasure" requirements some of the other companies have and they'll let me stack my coverages with my OT cars under my Nationwide policy.

    you must be a SEARCH NINJA... Because I have tried to search threads that I know exist with the proper search words no come up with nothing....

    If I check the box that says search classifieds, it still pulls up stuff from everywhere and stuff not even related..., as stated By someone else... I have had better luck searching with google...

    It's still MAJOR annoying to see people always bitch about " not doing a search"....

    If this guy did a search and pulled up a thread from 2005 and asked a question , the other camp would bitch about reviving a 10 yr old thread....

    And realistically the info from 10yrs ago may not be valid anymore

    Not true^^^, If a member brings up a thread with useful info it's appreciated. The bitching happens when someone brings up a drama or OT thread. Or a years old thread to answer a question that has obviously been answered.
