I'll see what kind of traction this gets here and possibly post a new topic...

For those of us that have LS swapped our vintage cars- how have you gone back to insure the car?  How did you value the car with the modern suspension and motor and stuff?

I have Hagerty with an agreed value. It's definitely a bit lower than what it would cost me to duplicate it, but this is no fault of theirs. I can always raise the coverage. You never get out of these cars what you put into them. I went with an amount I'd see it for should I ever decide to.

I'm currently planning redoing the body winter of 2020. I am going to raise it after that. Just need to find a place to handle the work and go from there.

I've been with Condon and Skelly now for both of my classic's and thankfully haven't had to use the insurance, but they have been easy to deal with so far. Mine is an agreed value policy. I did the same as Updated and used what I currently value the car at as my agreed value. They didn't question the price, but there was a section I had to fill out that gave details on any aftermarket parts I have on the car. I also figured that my build thread would be good documentation of the car if I ever needed to prove anything. I pay $302 per year and they cover up to $40k in damage with $300k in liability and uninsured motorist coverage.
