Rocsta

So my dad just bought this 1992 Rocsta for 3k. It's like Asia's version of a jeep but diesel. This thing is a tank everything on it looks reinforced. But I'm having trouble finding any in the US. Heck I can't find them anywhere except Australia and Asia. So how am I supposed to find how much it is worth for insurance purposes. I thought defenders were rare this thing is like a underwater purple unicorn of 4x4s.

Any suggestions?

What does the insurance company say it's worth?

They said since it does not exist in blue book that they can Insure it for a stated amount but my question is should my dad insure it for only 3k or more.
Comparing it to a jeep same miles and same year Is about 6k.

Find out what it would cost to replace it and find a local auto shop and or individual who would write you up a 1 off appraisal.
Give the appraisal to the insurance company and you're done.
Value established, closed case.

Just because something is rare, doesn't mean its valuable.

its rare because no-one wants one ... this is not the place to be trying to value an asian market copy of a jeep ....

Rocsta

Think it's actually an Suzuki with a Jeep nose

Boy was I wrong. It's a Korean Jeep with Mazda drivetrain. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asia_Rocsta

I don't mean to come off as bashing the vehicle, its certainly interesting and worth holding onto if you like it. I would look at that the same way I look at my Rover SD1. Its probably valuable to someone, but overall I doubt its worth any more than $3k. I can't imagine my Rover being worth more than $2k.

Thanks for the replies, I think my dad is just going to insure it for a basic value of 3k. Still it's a really interesting car. I'm personally not a jeep fan but I'll support a jeep knock off lol.
