Dude, I hope for your sake you have an "agreed value" set for those cars. Otherwise, your homeowner's policy won't give you enough to buy the tires. If you do have an agreed value, cool. I'll repeat what I always say on this subject. Every time I've talked to someone who lost a classic car insured with anyone other than a classic car insurer, they got completely hosed. "Oh, that's a really old car. It doesn't have any value. But since we've been collecting premiums from you all these years, here's a token amount."

I'm with Hagerty. I really like them. I have yet to have to file a claim, but their customer service is great, the rates are very reasonable and I even like the magazine they send me. (The latest issue has an article about Trans Am racing.)

Be aware that in order to get classic car insurance, your Mustang cannot be your daily driver and it must be garaged. If you can't check both those boxes, you're out of luck.

Mercury Insurance. Cheap, A+ rated, good cust service...ask the agent for agreed value if your car is valuable.

I'm with Heacock classic car insurance and have been for 13 years with both our 67 and 69 Mustangs. Have agreed value for both 'stangs.And the premiums for both are very reasonable.

They are also a proud sponsor to the MCA(Mustang Club of America).
