Re: Hagerty "cherished salvage" option
With today’s labor rates it does not take near what it used to to total a car. I had a car totaled because the wire harness burned out of it. The labor for the repair exceeded the value of the car.
If a tree falls on an the roof of an early Chevelle, they’ll total it for sure. But wouldn’t you want the drive train, chassis, interior, tires and wheels? I would and $12 a year, ie, two trip to Starbucks, is worth the gamble.
They pay you agreed value and you either sell the parts or use as a parts car for your next project.
66 Chevelle hardtop - LFX 3.6 liter V6/6L50 6 speed auto trans, 3.07 10 bolt, full Hotchkis suspension, Wilwood 4 wheel discs, white with red interior, cowl hood.
