My recommendation if you are looking for a daily driver go with the late model Mustang.
At least where I live the compulsory portion of my car insurance is the same whether the car is 40 years old or brand new. Yes it will be cheaper for collision and fire/theft on the 68 but you will never collect any where near what the car is worth so you might as well not buy it. The other option is collector car insurance from someone like Grundy. It will be drastically cheaper and will pay what the agreed value is. BUT and it is a big but, there are restrictions on how you can use the car and daily driving it is not allowed.
This restomod could not be passed up for price, unfortunately, ur right, classic car insurance is a must, and has its restrictions, luckily this car is restricted by its beauty already (I'm literally scared to scratch it/damage it in any way). I'll be driving it weekends only to shows.
Guess I'll now start saving again for my 2013gt daily driver....Maybe another ten years or so
I have four sons, so my goal is to leave them each a stang when I'm gone...halfway there already!! (On cars, not my lifespan, lol)
