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.

Many times photos make the paint and trim look better than in reality. In this case, we feel the photos don’t totally do the quality of the paint and trim justice!

All original body – zero rust!
Original Wood Bed. Still functional and looking good after 48 years in our dry Colorado climate.
The interiors of the doors were left original as they are in very good condition despite some wear marks and scratches to provide just a bit of 48 year old “patina”! The steel dash was not repainted either but a new dash top pad was installed to match the seat. The seat was redone very nicely with new padding and a high quality, thick vinyl; new carpets were installed.

Smaller diameter Grant steering wheel provides a sure and comfortable grip while 
increasing legroom for easy egress.
