Welcome to Vintage Motors of Lyons

Front of the shop in Lyons

We sell, consign, purchase, and locate cars of interest for folks that appreciate them. We  always carry an eclectic selection of classics. Whether you are wanting that perfect  Sunday driver, a project car, or a higher end investment, we probably have a car that you will enjoy!

I have been passionate about cars since I was a kid in the '50's and '60's and bought my first car while in high school, which was a then 10 year old 1958 MGA. Since then I have enjoyed and nurtured many classics, both foreign and domestic. I decided to follow and share my passion for cars by creating a welcoming marketplace to not only sell cars, but open a place for everyone to come in and check out and talk cars, look at car books, magazines, posters, artwork, etc..

Our shop was originally built as a Texaco gas station in the 1940's and is conveniently located at the junction of the two highways leading to the Rocky Mountains just north west of Boulder. You won't miss us at the west end of Main Street.  Lyons is a fun, small town offering nationally known live music festivals and brewpub; shops and great fly fishing, kayaking, tubing, hiking, and mountain biking.  The South St. Vrain Canyon is among many great driving roads in the area.

The best part of this business has been all of the great people we meet. Thanks for visiting our site and I hope to meet you whenever you are in the area.

1978 Datsun 280Z For Sale

We’re very pleased to present for purchase this beautiful “time capsule” Datsun 280Z . This is 280Z # HLS30-432515, built in October 1977.

It is a Five Speed coupe with just 97,356 original miles and is sold with a clear, Colorado actual mileage title. The car is equipped with air conditioning.

The car is finished in white (its original color; with one high quality re-paint in 1988) complimented by its original brown interior.

This Z has been very well maintained and cared for by its same local owner for the past 34 years. It is a three owner car from new and was sold new in Dallas, TX.

Perhaps the best quality of this Z is that it is very rust free. Not only was the car kept clean and garaged when not being driven but it received a Ziebart rust preventative treatment early in life and as a result does not suffer from the rust problems found in many other Z cars.

These 280Z cars (not to be confused with the later ZX cars) are very close to the original 240Zs but with a better running, more maintenance free engine thanks to fuel injection. Many consider the ’77 & ’78 280Zs to be the best of the Z cars.

Original jack, tool kit, spare wheel/tire, owners and workshop manuals.

The last of the real Z cars and an appreciating investment. In very good condition throughout, ready to enjoy!  SALE PENDING

1976 Triumph TR6 For Sale

1976 Triumph TR6 For Sale. The last year of production for what many consider to be Triumph’s best sports car. The TR6 combined brawny modern styling with classic British charm and a strong in-line 6 cylinder twin carb engine. The engine not only provides ample power in a 2,280 lb car but produces a sweet sporty exhaust note through its original type dual exhaust while doing so.

This is TR6 # CF56832U and was built June 1976.  It is finished in its original # 19 white body color (has had a decent quality re-paint at some point in the past) and #11 standard black interior. The top, full tonneau cover and top cover are also in black.

The engine and four speed transmission appear to be original to the car as well.

The car is straight, showing no evidence of body damage, and is considerably rust free with a clean undercarriage.

It starts readily  and runs and drives well.  Overall, I consider it to be of good driver quality and is a car one can enjoy driving while upgrading it as desired.

$ 10,500.00  Including a full set of good condition factory wheels, trim rings, center caps and lug nuts to replace the ones on the car which are showing some blems and which were painted white. There is also a roll bar to come with the car.
