IN­SUR­ANCE COSTS

Fast Ford - - Buyer’s Guide Escort Xr3 -

If, like many buy­ers, this is your sec­ond time around for XR3 own­er­ship, you’ll re­mem­ber the days of in­sur­ers re­fus­ing to cover any­thing with an XR badge. They were sim­ply the most stolen and crashed cars on UK roads.

To­day, thank­fully, if you avoid high-street in­sur­ers you’ll find very low-priced poli­cies more suited to a 96bhp clas­sic. Choose lim­ited-mileage cover, and even young driv­ers may not need a no claims bonus.

Find a spe­cial­ist bro­ker through rec­om­men­da­tion of fel­low en­thu­si­asts or

Fast Ford ads, and be sure to in­vest in an agreed value scheme. Club mem­ber­ship of­ten adds a lit­tle dis­count, so join the XROC to start sav­ing.
