Try Leland West @ lelandwest.com. They have insured a number of special interest cars for me and will insure my SSR as soon as I get the VIN number. Their application procedure is time consuming, but there rates are great. They offer a 2,500 & 5,000 mile a year program. The quoted rate for the 2,500 mile program with a stated value of $47,000 is approximately $450.00. I live in Michigan, and our auto insurance requirements make our rates substantially higher than other states.
LeLand West Insurance WILL NOT insure this vehicle as of 11/19/03 and the girl on the phone said they don't insure any trucks. Beware of the trick question as to how you will use vehicle. Will you use it for "any daily activities" will decline you. BEWARE!!!!
You are absolutely correct. Leland West had quoted about a month ago, and the issue of it being a truck was never discussed. I assumed they knew what they were quoting when I told them it was a Chevrolet SSR. I can't see what possible difference it makes.
I also have insurance with Grundy in Horsham Pa., which has indicated they will write it based on agreed upon value.
Any of the specialty insurers have rules limiting the vehicle's use as a daily driver and the number of annual miles allowed. If your SSR is being used as a daily driver, it probably will have to be insured with a standard carrier at a higher rate.

There will always be someone out there who still does not get ALL the great FUN & JOY this retro vehicle brings to so many people and of course to all of us...
