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.

Due to the great deal of interest in the car I am posting it now with early photos but am adding more regularly. Please call me 303-931-5280 for an appointment to see it in person if seriously interested. Thank You.

This Porsche runs and drives as well, if not better, than most any Porsche of this vintage. It benefits from a top end engine rebuild just a little over 5,000 miles ago and from fastidious care and maintenance by its prior owner, a long time Porsche owner/enthusiast.

The entire car presents very well. Euro amber tail light lenses and Euro bumper guards are aesthetically nice touches. Silver with black always a great color combination for Porsche.

The odometer on the car reads 53,174 miles which is believed to be its original mileage per the records and its servicing mechanic/shop. It is being sold with a clear, “0”, mileage exempt Colorado title. From the records, the car was apparently sold new in Las Vegas, NV; it was then relocated to Southern California before being purchased there and brought to Boulder six years ago. The body and undercarriage are straight with no evidence of any prior accident damage; little to no rust; very good gaps all around; the paint (was repainted its original color at a date unknown) is very good with just a few small blems. We see in the records that one small rust spot was found on the inner left front wheel well (not on body surface). The prior owner had this cut out and replaced with new metal welded in, primed and painted by Colour Restorations Body & Paint of Loveland, CO 9/16.

Very good door gaps both sides. Doors close with that good, solid Porsche sound and feel.

 


The interior of the car is very clean and well detailed. The front bucket seats were reupholstered in the correct OEM Porsche material along with new seat padding by Auto Weave of Denver 12/15; seating is like new and very comfortable as a result. All seat adjustments function properly. The dash is crack and blem free; all gauges working; original steering wheel; very good polished metal surfaces, etc.. The headliner has a small tear in the front center, and the carpet has a spot unraveled on the top rear of the trans tunnel that runs between the seats; otherwise the balance of both are very good. All of the glass on the car is clear and without any cracks; car has the opening “pop out” rear quarter side windows for good ventilation.

 

All gauges and lights are functioning; original steering wheel.

Unblemished, crack free dash top and dash.

Has optional five speed, Type 915 (non-dogleg), transmission.

Both door panels are in good shape but we see that the original door “pockets” that would have been mounted below the arm rest/opening handle trims are missing (complete 4 pc. set is available to purchase new).

Rear Seat Backs, which fold down for a flat carpeted surface.

Rear Seat Bottoms

The Kunstharzlack, or paint color, identification plate found on the left A pillar of the car matches the COA. Paint Color # 936-9-3 is Silver Metallic.

Left side B pillar Safety Compliance Sticker shows matching VIN # 9113100140 and the date of manufacture as July, 1972.

Original Owners Manual.

Original type 2.4 litre engine with its preferred mechanical fuel injection (MFI). Very much on its toes performance with a top end rebuild by Chris Pohlod/SAS Automotive of Boulder just 5,000 miles ago (detailed work order/receipt with car) and a fresh tune. The car sounds just right with its MFI and Bursch exhaust. Chris has performed all the mechanical service on the car over the past 6 years  and is available to speak with a prospective buyer to vet its condition. The engine in the car (# 6130709) is the correct year and type but is not the original engine per the COA which shows engine # 6130311.

Very clean and tidy engine and engine compartment. Correct original type fittings, parts, stickers, paint, etc..

There are complete service and maintenance records from the past six years plus there is a file of older records going back some 35 years that I have yet to organize. New parts and service within the past six years include new fuel pump, alternator, front brakes with upgraded cross drilled rotors, front wheel bearings, CV boots both axles, sway bar link bushings, etc. Radio antenna and windshield washers are “all there” but disconnected. Radio worked well on local FM stations.

Trunk with carpet; spare wheel/tire and jack below.

Trunk with center carpet and spare wheel/tire removed. Very solid, not rusty, trunk floor. Note new fuel tank level sending gauge.

View looking down inside smugglers box.

View of the inside of the front of the trunk/nose; also solid, drain holes are found beneath jack stowage area.

OEM jack and Porsche lug wrench; spare belt. There is not a tool kit with the car (they are available to purchase new).

Spare wheel and good spare tire. The front wheels on the car are Porsche Fuchs wheels while the rear and the spare wheels are Fuchs replica wheels. All are in very good condition with correct Porsche center caps in place. The car has a great stance with rear wheels being slightly wider (15×7) than the fronts (15×6); all shod with very good Pirelli P4 tires (195/65R15 rear; 185/65R15 front).
