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.

1959 Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite – Sold

1959 Austin Healey Sprite For Sale. Hard to say much more than what has already been written about Bugeyes. Certainly one of the most fun cars for the money of all time! I have nurtured this one personally for the past 11 years and have enjoyed it immensely!

This Bugeye is very good mechanically. It has an original interior with its stock, uncut, dash and factory seats which I very much value along with it having been a red car with red interior from new so no color changes. The body is straight all around, including the bonnet, without any accident damage. There is some rust showing on the body now at the doglegs (A Pillars) and on the rockers. There is also a section of paint in the centre of the upper bonnet that is cracked. Overall, the paint is about a 15 footer with its fair share of “patina” but as you can see she still shines up pretty nicely. I bought it in New Mexico but it was originally a Colorado car and is a good survivor. Ready for you to drive and enjoy as is; and if you choose not to re-paint it who cares! JUST SOLD – THANK YOU
