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.

1974 Porsche 911 Five Speed 3.0 Litre Coupe – Sold

1974 Porsche 911 For Sale. This is Porsche # 9114101114. The engine has been nicely upgraded from the stock 2.7 litre with a fully rebuilt 3.0 litre 911 engine paired to a rebuilt five speed (G15) manual transmission. It runs, drives, handles, stops and shifts very well. The mechanical work on the car has been done by some of the areas best Porsche shops over the past 12 years with all records and receipts with the car. These “middy” 911s are some of the lighter 911s produced and make for great driving cars.



The car has a fibreglass 930 wide body kit installed. It is painted a very deep purple metallic which shows almost black with a dark blue hue. There is very little rust on the car but the paint and some of the exterior trim are rough. There is cracking in the paint along the fender flares and front hood along with the usual road wear chips and blems.

The car was originally Metallic Blue (#334-9-3). The interior is black with blue cloth inserts on the seats; carpets are black. Overall the interior is in pretty decent shape and certainly usable as is. You can see the vents for AC across the lower dash. The AC components are intact, the fan functions and blew cool when turned on although it most likely will need recharged and serviced to provide maximum cooling  (see photo of AC unit in photos below).

Momo wheel is a nice functional addition. Aside from the clock, all gauges, lights working.
