68 Porsche 911 - Hagerty employee Brad Phillips and his 1968 Porsche


Brad Phillips was a car guy long before he owned one. He credits his grandfather’s 1950 Dodge and father’s ’67 Corvette as the “primary instigators” of his interest in automobiles. When he finally reached driving age, Brad’s first car purchase was a ’65 Mustang Fastback. “I don’t think I’ve ever been without an old car to work on,” he said. “I’ve owned over a dozen different types of cars over the years – a mix of vintage American, British and German cars primarily, from 1955 to ’72. I’ve had a couple of vintage Jeeps that I really liked, too.” Brad owned an Allstate agency in Denver from 2003-2008 and was a very active Hagerty agent. He said collector car insurance was an easy sell since he owned classics himself and saw the value in it. It’s also easy to understand why he eventually became a member of the Hagerty team.
