It’s not protected under any insurance plan once it arrives to you.  You’re reliable for your own coverage & you may acquire your own coverage any time once your vehicle is paid for in full, we recommend you do so.  Hagerty-Classic Car Insurance is a reputable company and may be one you might consider.
