What to Know About Classic Car Insurance

Whether it’s an old Packard, a groovy VW bus from the 1960s or a muscle car from your glory days, antique and classic cars are definitely a special breed of vehicles. As such, they often need special classic car insurance.

Insurers offer many kinds of classic car insurance for different kinds of older cars. Erie Insurance offers coverage* for the following kinds of cars:

While insurers often require a separate policy to write classic car insurance, ERIE will usually write your collector car on the same policy as your regular car(s). ERIE also offers discounts to classic or antique cars that are driven at very low-mileage—for instance, 500 miles or less per year.

ERIE can insure your classic car on a Stated Amount basis. This means we pre-determine the value of the vehicle and insure it for a specific Stated Amount shown on your policy declarations page.

For vehicles valued at $10,000 and up, our professional material damage appraiser will inspect and value the vehicle. This means you’ll know what we believe the car is worth before a loss takes place. That way, there are no surprises if you suffer a loss since we will pay up to the stated amount shown on the declarations page of your policy.

Even if you never drive your classic car, you’ll still want to protect it from perils like fire, vandalism and theft. That’s why it’s a good idea to talk with an insurance professional like an Erie Insurance Agent if you’re interested in classic car insurance. He or she will be able to advise you about the right coverage at the right price for your classic or antique car.
