What is classic car insurance?

Classic car insurance provides protection specifically suited for classic and antique cars. Though it comes with many of the typical coverages found in a regular insurance policy, there are also extra limitations attached (like maintenance requirements and mileage caps).

What is a classic or antique car?

A classic car is a vehicle between 10 to 24 years old and has historic interest, such as a muscle car or hot rod.
An antique car is 25 years or older with historic interest. Any classic car over 25 years old is considered an antique for insurance purposes.

What makes classic car insurance different?

Classic car insurance is typically less expensive than regular car insurance and is suited to fit the specific make, model, and year of your car. But because each vehicle is unique, there is no set rate for a classic car insurance plan.
You’ll need to reach an agreement about the value of your classic car with your insurer before you can purchase classic car insurance.
There are a number of specific requirements that make classic car insurance unique, and some common requirements include:
  • Low mileage
  • Restored, maintained, or preserved in its original condition
  • Secure storage (in a locked garage or pole barn)

Coverage
Description
Collision coverage
This covers damages resulting from a collision with another vehicle or stationary object.
Comprehensive coverage
This covers damage that isn’t the result of a collision, such as unexpected events like severe weather, theft, or vandalism.
Uninsured/underinsured motorist
This will protect you from paying out of pocket if you’re involved in an accident with a driver who doesn’t have auto insurance.

This provides coverage for tire changes, towing, and other incidental expenses that aren’t part of a typical auto insurance policy.
