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.

1967 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT Veloce For Sale

Euro Model 1967 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT Veloce (Scalino) For Sale. Finished in Verde Vivo Pininfarina (AR # 217) with Black Interior.

Modifications and upgrades include a 2.0l twin overhead cam engine with dual Weber 40DCOE32 carbs, 5 speed transmission, hydraulic clutch and a limited slip differential. Centerline headers with Ansa exhaust, larger brakes, adjustable Koni shocks with Centerline springs.

Flying Buttress seats (from one year only ’69 model), GTA style grille, Cast Aluminum Wheels with original Alfa center caps, wood rim Alfa steering wheel.

This car was imported to the US in 1977 by a U.S. serviceman who had purchased the car while stationed in Italy. Italian export and US import docs are with the car as well as receipts and records from 1978 to present. Restoration work on the car was largely performed in the 1990’s, with most recent work (new master cylinder, etc.) in 2015 to maintain drivability. The car has been here locally in Colorado with the same owner for the past 30+ years. It has been driven sparingly (500 miles or less) since the late 90’s; hence it now being available for purchase.

The car is sold with a clear Colorado title, numerous spares (see listing near end of this post) to come with the car as well.  Please contact me with any questions, need for further details. Thank You.

The car was painted in Colorado in November 1991. There are some minor chips, scuff marks and blems from use but overall presents well, some of the paint on the inside of the wheel arches is worn in places. The body is straight with no signs of prior accident damage. We note two very small dimples: one above the drivers door handle and one below the left side belt line beneath the vent window. The door gaps are good; the drivers door shuts/opens perfectly, the passenger side door does not close tightly without some extra effort (replacement of hinge pins on this door was suggested by a local Alfa shop). The glass and rubber all around are in good condition. The car is dry with no apparent rust issues. It has been garaged when not being driven in our dry Colorado climate since it was painted (prior to CO the car was in Texas).

The top dash pad and all of the dash is in very good condition aside from some delamination on the glove box door.

 

 

All gauges work with the exception of the oil pressure gauge  (most likely sending unit needs replaced); all lights, wipers, etc. working.

 

 

Horn(s) are not in place but there are two pair among the spares.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 2.0 Litre Engine # AR01500-13733

The original engine in the car was the 1.6 liter (1570 cc) producing 109 HP  & 102 ft lbs torque at 6,000 RPM; while the 2.0 litre (1962 cc) engine produced 132 HP & 125 ft lbs torque at 4,000 RPM (both stock configuration specs.) which  is a very nice upgrade. Compression test results are excellent and show 152 PSI on cylinder No. 1; 150 PSI on cylinder No. 2; and 160 PSI on cylinders Nos 3 & 4. Receipts with the car show dates in 1992 for the rebuild of the 2.0 litre engine.

The transmission, also from the 2.0 litre donor car, was rebuilt in 1993 and shifts very well with no “snicking” of gears up or down.

 

Centerline exhaust headers.

Ansa exhaust.

 

The wheels on the car are 15″  (150mm x 390 mm) cast aluminum wheels which were purchased used from Centerline Alfa in 1997 and are in very good condition. They were made in the U.S. by Rockwell Int’l. There are five of these wheels with the car. The center caps are original Alfa Romeo. The spare wheel in the trunk is the original steel spare (15″).The tires are very old Michelin TRXs and should be replaced ASAP (this is the #1 thing the car needs).
