Sam Smyth II is a Third Generation Veteran Specialist in Motorcar Service, Repair, Sales, Parts, and Diagnostics and was educated in the automobile business by his grandfather and father. The Smyth family has been selling, servicing, repairing and supplying parts for British, German, Italian and domestic high-end luxury motorcars, including vintage sports cars and exotic race cars, since 1934 at shops in Ireland, Great Britain and the U.S.A. The Smyth family has owned and operated some of the oldest independent Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Jaguar Service Establishments and Garages in the U.S.A. and Great Britain.
Samuel M. Smyth II's almost 4 decades of hands-on training started as a nine year old going to his Grandfathers and Father’s garages and learning from them and their factory trained, certified, and mechanical engineers. After several years of very closely supervised repairs, Sam was ready to rebuild an entire car solo. His father brought in his own personal Jaguar XK120 and Sam pulled the engine, stripped the car to the frame, and reconditioned all the parts and reinstalled everything, from engine, drive train, Instrumentation and accessories. His father told him he was passing on to him generations of his experience and knowledge. These Strong basics and almost forty years of hands on experience have enabled Sam to understand how to repair all components of a motorcar.

“There were many more cars in my grandfather’s shop and that’s where I learned to love the big-body motorcars of that period. He was a perfect gentleman and his love for thoroughbred motor cars was passed down to my father and to me.” – Sam Smyth II

Smyth Imported Car Service, Inc. 3850 Montgomery Road, Cincinnati, Ohio. . Including a Licensed New Car Dealer for Triumph, Sunbeam-Roots, Saab of Sweden and TVR. My father also imported Rolls-Royces and other fine motor cars from my grandfather’s garage in Ireland. Smyth Imported Car Service Inc. since 1977 has been owned and operated by Samuel M. Smyth II at 8773 Remington Road Cincinnati, Ohio near Indian Hill. “My father was the owner of a rare ‘birdcage’ Maserati that was built for him by the Maserati brothers, with a Roots supercharger. It was an open-wheel car and he drove it in many races overseas, until my mother put a stop to it.” “He started here in the 1950s, in New York City, then moved to Cincinnati at Hassen Motors near Indian Hill. He started his own company on Reading Road, with a franchise to sell Jaguars in 1959. He opened a second dealership in the 1970's for sales and service in Pompano Beach, Florida, where he sold Porsche, Lotus, Mercedes, Rolls-Royce, Jaguars and other luxury motor cars, including vintage sports cars.”
