Robert or WR Teto,

I have tried Hagerty and they restrict you 'Show Truck quality' only.  Their 
rates were $50.00 annually.  They laughed when I sent in pictures of my 
rusty work in progress truck.

Try www.americancollectorsins.com. (800-360-2277).  They were listed in the 
latest 'Classic Trucks' magazine.  Their online annual quote for my stock 51 
1/2 ton was $36.00 with 2500 miles a year.  Must be garage kept.  They do 
not seem to limit their clients to 'Show Truck quality'.  We'll see how they 
pan out.

51 1/2 ton 5 window
Kersey, Colorado
