Charles Schmitt, Daniel Schmitt’s father, launched his first dealership in the mid 1950s. In 1969, he opened his Beverly Hills dealership, located at the corner of Wilshire Bouelvard and Rodeo drive, one of the most coveted commercial locations in the United States. He was one of the first classic car dealers in the country, and at one point, was the only authorized Rolls-Royce dealer in the state of Missouri. In 1982, he had generated more sales worldwide than any other Rolls-Royce dealer and was featured in the Wall Street Journal. He eventually became an authorized dealer for Stutz and Excalibur as well. Daniel started working at his father’s dealership as a porter then a mechanic, though he was their Sales Manager when he decided to open his own dealership in 1989. Daniel started small; at the time, he operated his business out of one building. However, the company grew rapidly and established a name for itself based on quality. Today, his dealership spans 4-acres, boasts two recently renovated showrooms, a state-of-the-art service department and a world-class restoration facility.
John Sherman, the General Manager at Daniel Schmitt & Co., is one of the most knowledgeable collector car enthusiasts in the industry. Cumulatively, he has over 40 years of classic car experience. John and Daniel met while they were selling Rolls-Royces at Charles Schmitt’s dealership. As the years passed, John relocated to Dallas, where he continued to sell Rolls-Royces. He eventually returned to St. Louis, working at the St. Louis Car Museum before partnering up with Daniel Schmitt.
