The problem with quoting pre-1981 model vehicles is that automakers at the time didn't use a standardized VIN format. Since insurance is all about risk, most insurance companies want to know as much about the vehicle as possible before offering a rate. Without a 17-character VIN, most companies can't accurately price coverage for a pre-1981 model. All this means is that you will likely have to contact an agent over the phone to process your request for a quote
. Normally liability coverage for a vehicle that age won't be an issue with most companies, but if you're wanting a "full coverage
" policy, you'll likely need to contact a company that specializes in covering older vehicles; like Hagerty.
