Re: Insurance

State Farm, but I use mine as a DD. No limits on mileage etc. I have one other car with them. Together, State Farm was the most economical for normal use. I don't use SF for my regular daily drivers, though. I use USAA, but they wouldn't cover the GT.

No affiliation.

I guess suggestions from us Yanks aren't particularly helpful. Sorry for not noticing your location.

John..
From memory mine is 330, includes breakdown and European breakdown. Based on 3000 miles and Agreed Value of 35k
From memory 4 named drivers - although those do not appear to cost extra.
From memory excess is 250 or perhaps 300
Been with them for years - but now track cover with them add a bit

Ian

Re: Insurance

You might like try Routen Chaplin Specialist Vehicle Insurance Department.
Ask for Kim Eaton on 0115 9737307 Mention Nigel at Peckleton gave you the number if you wish.
301.72 agreed valve /buy back option/37k value/3k mileage/250 compulsory excess/track events and shows included but no speed trail etc.
Give them a try it will only cost a phone call to start with.
Best of look choosing.Nigel.

Try Osbourne & Sons I have used them in the past for other cars I've built and they have been very good.

Re: Insurance

I had my insured with American National but was getting pretty expensive on the last two renewals so I just switched to Heacock Classic. Buddy of mine recommended them as he recently insured his Kirkham 427 Cobra. Really reduced my premium as I have it insured for value replacement of $122,000.
