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.

1976 Triumph TR6 -True Survivor For Sale

1976 Triumph TR6 For Sale. The last of the traditional TR sports cars and a true survivor TR6 in very good condition. Purchased in Denver, CO by its past owner nearly 36 years ago. It has just over 46,400 original miles and still wears its original paint (Triumph White #19) which is in very good condition, especially for a 42 year old car!

The body is straight with the exception of a crease in the lower rear valance panel below the rear bumper; no other accident damage; no repairs/filler, etc.. The car is rust free with the exception of some minor surface rust around the battery.

This TR6 (# CF56449U) benefits from a thorough professional mechanical refurbishment completed just this past fall (details below). It runs, drives, shifts, stops and handles pretty much as new. It has a new top, new top boot cover, new red line tires, new clutch, Petronix, spin-off oil filter, etc.. The engine is noise and smoke free with excellent oil pressure.

Classic and brawny styling remains timeless.  Many consider the TR6 to be the best running and driving of the Triumph marque and this one furthers that belief by providing a wonderful open British roadster driving experience without issues.

I do believe one would be hard pressed to find a better condition, lower mileage, original paint TR6 at this price. Please know that we have installed some new items since we photographed the car: replaced lower right dash crash pad; new left side window crank; new clutch pedal pad; and new trunk carpet.
