Hello all, it's been a while since I've posted on TMF.

 

Basically I've been using a 1965 Austin Westminster as my daily, and being 3 litre it loves a drop of petrol, at the time I was in training so only used it on weekends when I didn't mind spending a little extra cash on fuel, now trainings out of the way I'm based down in Woolwich. I managed to get a extremely tidy 1.5 diesel 106 for £300, annoyingly it's cheaper to insure the 3 litre beast :goaway:
I can't insure the 106 till the 24th of December when my Westy insurance runs out, but here's the problem. I'd like to continue driving both, the only way that I know of to do this is traders policy or multicar policy, but nowhere seems to offer it for a classic and a modern vehicle and a traders policy, although my dad is a mechanic and I do help with work at home with customer vehicles and our own, I have to have certificates to prove I'm qualified which, I don't.

 

Is there anywhere that will insure me for both vehicles at a sensible price? Or offer me a traders policy at this age without proof?

 

Cheers

iirc flux will do classic insurance but only IF you have a daily as your main car. Or so I was told

I'll give them a ring in the morning.. Ironically online quotes for multicar policies have the Wolseley 6/110 and Vanden Plas 3 Litre and 4 Litre R variants but no listing for Austin Westminster :/

You're never going to get a decent online quote for something as old.

 

You need to find a decent (possibly limited mileage) classic car policy. Multi car policies are alright for common euroboxes but probably don't understand classics
