8 affordable classic cars beloved by retirees

Senior citizens who have retired may suddenly find themselves with spare time and an interest in taking up a hobby, such as owning a classic car.

The folks at classic-car insurer Hagerty Insurance looked at their valuation data to come up with these classic cars for seniors that are affordable, available for purchase in "good" condition, likely to increase in value and easy to maintain with widely available parts. The car values are as of December 2012, and are the most recent available from Hagerty.

1955 Chrysler Windsor Deluxe

Average price for good condition: $15,000 sedan; $20,500 hardtop coupe
What's to love: Known for its elegant style and overall comfort, the Windsor Deluxe requires very little effort to drive, especially when equipped with power brakes and power steering.
