About The Smittys

Smitty’s Classics is a family owned classic car dealership located in Lyons, Kansas .  The Family has been restoration enthusiasts since the senior Smitty’s first restoration, a 1942 Studebaker Champion; traded for an intake manifold in 1972 and finished in 1977. The Senior Smitty, Arlan and his sons, Curtis “Smitty” Smith and Dennis “Smitty” Smith did several restorations as hobbyists. The projects included several Mustangs, a few Thunderbirds, a Chevelle and even an MG Midget.

Smitty’s Classics was established to service enthusiasts.  Our goal is to provide classic cars at various levels of restoration as well as completed projects. Whether you are looking for a professionally completed restoration or a project you can finish yourself, we would love to serve.  If we don’t have what you are looking for, let us know.  We’ll keep an eye out for your dream project!
