I think my first car insurance was £100 which was about the same cost as the car, my first one, a Well worn Hillman Imp. This was around 1971 and if my memory is right the Co-op was the insurer.
Interesting topic as now that I think about it my recent policies on Mazda Mx5, our current Xtrail and Hyundai i10 all come in about £250 fully comprehensive (self and wife). Almost certainly my Imp policy would have been 3rd party, fire and theft which was considerably cheaper than comprehensive back then.
This would appear to point to insurance being another example of something that has become cheaper in real terms over the years, but this conclusion is based on my own experience and is not researched.
