Is Your Car a Classic?
Eligibility for Classic Car Insurance
Age is the number one indicator of a classic — a piece of history and a different time that’s made it through the ages. But not all old cars are classics. Classic car insurance is reserved for vintage collectibles: limited editions, custom parts, an icon of its time, and even driven by someone famous. Here’s what it means to sit behind the wheel of a true classic:
A vehicle between 10 and 24 years old with historical value or significance, such as a hot rod or muscle car
A vehicle that is 25 years old or more, with historical value.
Your classic or antique car is not meant for everyday rides. To qualify as a collector car, it must only be used at car shows and exhibitions, parades, and infrequent leisure driving.
A classic car must be in good condition in order to retain its value and appreciate over time. It must be restored and maintained to preserve its original condition, or is currently undergoing restoration.
Classic cars are valuable, and with challenges to restoration, may be prone to damage. To keep your classic car secure, it must be stored in an enclosed building where it is kept safe.
