What's the best way to insure a young driver on a classic car policy?

We're having difficulty finding insurance for my son for a 1970 Ford Mustang Couple, left hand drive, 5.7-litre engine. He's 21 and has been driving for three years. He'll be doing less than a 1000 miles a year in it. Are there any insurance brokers you can recommend that specialise in this area?
Adrian Flux, Heritage and Footman James all have young driver policies - but insuring a young driver on a 5.7-litre Mustang is always going to be a tough ask. You might find it easier and cheaper to get insurance for a classic with a smaller engine.
