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.

1966 Volkswagen Bug – Sold

1966 VW Bug For Sale. Fun, cool little Bug. One of my favorite personal cars but its time for me to pass it on to someone that will drive and use it more than I have been recently.

I bought it out of Southern Cal with CA black plates 6+ years ago; not rusty, solid car. Runs and drives well. It scoots along pretty well with its dual port engine with twin Weber carbs and extractor exhaust. A blast to drive!

Paint is scruffy, “great patina”. Originally Bahama Blue, then sunshine yellow and now is in the same PT Boat Gray I bought it with. Unassuming, last of the glass covered headlight cars, good classic German chrome steel bumpers, vintage roof rack. Red leatherette interior in great shape. Now 12 v electrical with alternator; heat tubes off/heat channels good, wipers on the fritz, good sound from more modern Blaupunkt AM/FM Cassette built into the rear of the glove compartment, old classic Blaupunkt radio still in dash.

Hard to find good ones of these anymore. The next 912!!  JUST SOLD – THANK YOU 












Does one need much more than a speedometer and a fuel gauge?


 Old School German Blaupunkt AM Radio in Dash; more modern functioning one in rear of glove compartment.



Dual port engine with Weber carbs and EMPI air filters.


Original pans and jack posts in good shape.
