'70 Challenger 318
« on: May 26, 2011 - 05:18:05 AM »
For insurance purposes, and just out of curiosity, whats it worth?

Original CA car 318 904 numbers matching on everything but the radiator and rear end.  All stock except for.
8.75 3.55 sure grip
Discs in the back
4bbl and intake
RT exhaust and valence, TA spoiler
RT hood needs paint
New gas tank
New paint non original color.  Nice but a few flaws not show quality.
No rust except for surface rust in trunk floor due to recent leak and firewall vent area.
Good running car subtable for daily use.
Driver set worn out.
Interior is very nice but could use a carpet and the drivers seat is worn out so figure seat covers.
Overall its a great looking, very original car that get tons of attention. Here are some pics.  Some recent some not.   http://www.flickr.com/photos/72593510@N00/sets/72157623078168198/

Oh yeah no fender tags, originally a green car.

Some of those pics are old, before the car was fixed up  The grill has been restored, the motor cleaned up and most everything replaced from the long block up.

I would insure it for at least $25k.  Make sure you get a fixed value policy.

Thanks Katfish.  I have it at $15k but looking around I don't think I could find a '70 with done bodywork and paint for that. Fixed value is a good tip, I have that now through Haggerty. 

What should I raise it to once the built 340 and 4 speed are in there?

Maybe bump it up to $30-35k.  The purpose of the policy is to provide funds for replacement in the event of a total loss.
So if you think it would take $50k to find a car like you want, insure it for that.

I'm curious what's your year insurance premium if you state a let's say $30k value? In Poland I was quoted 10% value a year premium for historical/valuable vehicles. Insane.

This thread is very helpful.  I recently got a policy from American Collectors and am wondering if there are better carriers out there?  I know some are better than others about paying up in a total loss.

I would add that the appraised worth is much higher during these times than it will sell for. Maybe 30k appraised, but 25k max in this market. I am getting my car appraised which has all been restored and now has a 340 replaccccing the 318 so i'll let you know, but i couldn't get more than 25k tops

I have American Collector, with $25k coverage, $140/yr.
Nice thing about fixed value policy is they can't dispute or require appraisal, they payout the agreed value for a total loss.
