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.

1966 Dodge D100 – Sold


1966 Dodge D100 Utiline Stepside 2WD Pickup For Sale. Great history, is ex-US Forest Service Truck; delivered new in Denver, CO on September 29, 1966. Original Paint (Forest Service Green) – perfect patina (I’d never paint it!). Original 318 Y Block V8 coupled to a four speed manual transmission. Doors have small holes drilled in them where the Forest Service signs were, a roof mounted spotlight (not connected but intact) and what looks to be the FS communications radio equipment knobs and switches mounted under dash. Rare truck, especially in this body style and condition; where else are you gonna find one?!



Is running, drive-able “project” truck. New starter, plugs, battery, brand new wheel rims shod with new Firestone Mud/Snow Tires. Some rust (lower rockers and corners of floors) but not too bad, especially given that it is almost 52 years old! Obviously being in dry Colorado climate its whole life has greatly helped to preserve it. Factory workshop manual; jack is under seat. 92,000 on the odometer, most likely original mileage given how it runs and the overall shape its in.


Needs that I’m aware of: Wiper arms missing; manual choke cable broken (for cold start, a shot of starting fluid in the carb starts it right up); front kingpins showing wear; clutch slave cylinder and brake cylinders leaking a bit and the left front brake hose needs replacing but it shifts and stops!; e brake not working but there; wiring to tail lights will need fixed but both are intact.


Super heavy duty front push bars and rear bumper for Forest Service use.


Oak bed in good shape; obviously replaced at some point.



Interior in pretty good shape.







Love the way the hood goes all the way up for super access, great feature Mopar!
