You certainly need insurance that has an agreed value and retention of salvage without deduction clause.

Talk to Alan Morgan at Club Lotus or Paul Matty, both can provide you with a valuation certificate that will be accepted by the major classic insurers. Original is in fashion at the moment, as is good condition, history and provenance. Don't be underinsured and don't pay over the top.

Thanks Alan. Alan Morgan did my agreed evaluation but that was a couple or so years ago. He did advise me to keep a close eye on values as he thought my car irreplaceable.
