American Modern Celebrates National Collector Car Appreciation Day By Unveiling 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle Restored By Its Staff

More Than 100 American Modern Employees Contributed to Bringing New Life to a Totalled American Classic Car

AMELIA, Ohio--()--In concert with National Collector Car Appreciation Day, American Modern Insurance Group®, a leading speciality insurance organization known for its collector car coverage, unveiled the completed restoration of a 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu SS, during a collector car show held Thursday, July 10 in Amelia, OH.

The car, which the company calls “Ami G.,” an acronym for American Modern Insurance Group, came to the company badly damaged and destined for the scrap yard. Over the last 20 months the car has gotten a second chance and has been fully restored through a collective undertaking by more than 100 American Modern® employees.

The project and resulting online video series, branded The Build, was filmed at American Modern’s® training facility. The series can be seen on American Modern’s® YouTube and Facebook channels.

“The Build is a testament to the kind of creativity, expertise and ingenuity that have helped us excel in meeting the special insurance needs of collector vehicle owners,” said American Modern® President and CEO Manny Rios.

The process involved totally disassembling the car and putting it on a rotisserie so that every part could be restored. All of the work (except for the engine) was completed internally at American Modern®.

The Unveiling of Ami

To celebrate completion of the project, and to reveal the final results of all the work on ‘Ami,’ American Modern hosted a collector car show at its headquarters in Amelia where classic cars owned by American Modern® employees were on display.
