The Eldorado is insured on a classic policy with RH (recommended by the owner of a '56 Buick, who raved about their all inclusive European recovery service). What really impressed me about them was they transferred the cover from the STS without any formalities, admin. charges or additional premium, even though it's LHD, not UK spec - & worth nearly 10 times as much. Premium's much the same as the Cherokee though that's on a regular LV comp. policy, albeit with 90% NCD. Really nice, real people to deal with too. The Xantia's with Esure, best price by a country mile - but still about the same as the other 2 put together (although it includes 2nd named driver) because it's in London (the "Yanks" are registered at the Torbay address) - still cheaper than the C15 though which, improbably, is insured under a "specialist vehicle" policy - like a "classic" but without the age prerequisite - otherwise, because it's a van, I couldn't get regular insurance, only "van insurance" which is even more expensive & nobody liked the idea I only wanted "Social, Domestic & Pleasure".
Put car delivery .... Then classed as a car but still a van , insurance mine field

Don't recall you actually specify the vehicle type/body style, C15 tells them it's a van (in this country).
