The Chubb Group of Insurance Companies has announced a new free mobile application, the Classic Car Guide, to help take the guesswork out of buying classic and collectible cars by searching an extensive database of sales histories and online markets. The Classic Car Guide, created by the Chubb Group of Insurance Companies, provides real-time data about collector vehicle values that can help users make informed purchasing decisions.
Powered by Keith Martin's Sports Car Market's database of more than 100,000 auction entries, the application provides up-to-date and accurate sales information for domestic and foreign collectible cars. Users can search the collector car transaction data by vehicle identification number (VIN), make, model and year to help determine a fair current market price and to obtain insurance quotes. Photos of collector vehicles and 20 years' worth of reference articles from Sports Car Market are also available through the application. In addition, users can search for collector vehicles currently listed for sale on Craigslist and eBay.
Two versions of the app are available now through the iTunes App Store: Classic Car Guide for iPad and Classic Car Guide for iPhone. The app will soon be available for Android-based smart phones and the Blackberry, and agents and brokers will be able to download a desktop version.
