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.

1974 Fuel Injected, Overdrive MGB GT For Sale


1974 MGB GT For Sale. Many consider the GT version of the MGB to be more attractive than the roadster version of the car, certainly the Pininfarina design is a very handsome GT.

This particular car looks very good in Citron Yellow (BMC Color # BLVC 73) and is very well complimented by it’s beautiful cream leather interior sourced from England from the rare MGRV8. Genuine Lucas Fog Ranger lamps are functional and also serve to provide a unique, appealing visual impact to the front of the car. While most rubber bumpered B’s tend to look a bit clumsy, here they provide a nice contrast to the yellow exterior and fit well with the overall aesthetic of the car; as do the Panasport alloy wheels.

This car features a Megasquirt Fuel Injection system providing easy starting, smooth running and reliable, enhanced performance. This feature, coupled with the electrically operated all synchromesh Over Drive transmission and its plush, comfortable interior make for a wonderful touring sports GT.
