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.

1968 Ford Mustang GT 2 Door Hardtop – Sold

DSCN4981 RF OPEN

1968 Mustang GT 2 Door Hardtop For Sale. This is Mustang # 8R01S167236 built on July 15, 1968 at the Ford plant in San Jose, CA.

This was a potent muscle car in its day, a first year “S” Code car featuring a 390 cu in High Performance big block V8 4bbl engine which produces an impressive 325 hp and 427 ft lb of torque. Weighing in at about 2,800 lbs with driver & fuel, this Mustang turned 13 second quarter mile times at 105 mph right out of the box!  JUST SOLD – THANK YOU

DSCN4985 LSR

This Mustang retains its original finish and features. Paint is “Presidential Blue” (Ford Color # 3061-A) having had one high quality, glass out repaint with new rubber in this original color seven years ago. The body is straight and rust free and the paint provides a deep luster and shine. The deep blue is set off very nicely by its White “C” stripe, black vinyl roof, and raised white letter tires; a great looking car.

DSCN4984 LR

This is a car that looks great from most every angle but we really like the concave rear tail light panel that was introduced on Mustangs in ’67 and the quad tips of the GT dual exhaust. The exhaust note on the car is that just right sound of healthy big block V8 burble.

 

DSCN4982 RS

This car was equipped with the following features when first built (per the included Deluxe Marti Report) and aside from new tires are still on this unmodified car:

GT Equipment Group;  Blue Vinyl Bucket Seats, Black Vinyl Roof; F70x14 Wide Oval White Sidewall Nylon Tires; Console; C-6 Select Shift Automatic Transmission; 3.00 Rear Axle; Power Front Disc Brakes; Power Steering; SelectAire Air Conditioning; AM Radio, Tinted Glass and Deluxe Seat Belts.

DSCN4986 L INT

Interior is in very good condition without any tears, blems, or cracks on the dash. The two tone vinyl really works well with the dark blue body paint and provide a great, period correct look and feel.

We received this car from a long time Mustang owner and collector in Northern California where the car has been since new and who recently moved to Colorado. He had owned this particular GT for the past 23 years and we have very good records on the car along with some nice factory spares from his collection as well. His long term love, care and maintenance of the car is reflected in its excellent condition and we’re sure the next owner will continue to enjoy this nice GT too.
