I changed insurance companies today, from Progressive to State Farm. Because I have a homeowners policy with them, they were able to beat my old rate. She had quoted the car on the phone as a GT, but when we got to the model screen, I noticed a Bullitt listing, so I fessed up, thinking that the company would know when they ran the VIN. She explained that it was a code 24 instead of a 23 like the standard GT. I'm thinking, here we go with the technical explanation on why I need to bend over. You guessed it, it was a higher rate. But I was relieved to see that for me, it was only three dollars and change difference per month. Well worth the price of admission! By then, everyone in the office wanted to go out and see it, since they had never heard of such a car before. For a newly single guy, it was worth three dollars a month just to have all those women want to see it and sit in it. Best three dollars I ever spent.

Came up with it just now, but I truly could almost feel my ankles in the palm of my hands.

They didn't have this code that I know of when I bought mine 09/20/01. They just classified it as a GT. And I also have State Farm Insurance (homeowner's and auto).

She was nice enough to let me watch and when choosing the model of car I saw that each model had a two digit number next to it on the screen, the V-6s were a lower number, converts higher and Cobras on top. If glancing at the screen, it could appear that the models were just numbered so you could type in a number to select a vehicle, but I noticed some were the same, so I asked about it because I was curious. She explained that the two digit code was determined by many factors, such as loss rate, replacement costs, ect. The numbers are not exclusive to any car, there could theorhetically be several different cars that would score the same and therefore have the same rate.

When I got rid of my GT for the Bullitt, there was no change in price for me. I too have State Farm. Must be the zip code. But on the screen, I too noticed that the car was listed separately.
