I will be taking possession of a BCW 1952 MG TD built on a 1986 Chevette frame tomorrow. Probably get it registered next week some time but have to get insurance.
I geico for my everyday cars now, do I tack it on or go for a Classic Car Insurer like Hagerty?
I spoke to Hagerty and explained hat it was titled as a 1986 Chevette but was a replica car and asked $12,000 coverage. They said no problem and the rates were very reasonable.
Any input would be helpful so I don’t go down the wrong road.

Click on the ”search” button at the top of the page . Type in ”insurance” ,click ”all forums” and you will get a ton of info about insurance.
The classis/collector car route is usually much cheaper than adding to your regular auto policy.
I’m a little concerned about the car being titled as a Chevette. It may be that the builder just used the donor car title. That could cause a problem later if you are envolved in an accident or should sell it to a person in a different state. Just don’t want to see you have trouble later, a little caution now could save you a bunch of time and problems in the future.October 7, 2011 at 9:17 pm #246792Dan RosaParticipant
Nitro , you will have a lot of fun with the car. I have the same with a 1.4 4 speed ,,as for insurance , Larry I think is on the wright track I have Hagertry ,As the frame the car has it’s own frame not chevy it was made by the kit manufacturer mine was titled as a 1986 custom built ,Ca. title ,I had no trouble titling her in Tn. the trouble with a chevy title , D.M.V. goes by frame numbers in a wreck or theft .or even a traffic stop it doe’s not look like a chevette All I’m saying is to check in to it ,,look in your paper work ,you may have the MSO from the manufacturer.

I agree, I will check the numbers before going to the DMV. Thanks for the input.October 8, 2011 at 12:24 am #246794Paul MossbergKeymaster
Two basic issues here…proper titling and registration and good insurance.
