In 1963 our founder, Sam Leman, started our rich heritage as a great Chevy dealer. From his first lots in Roanoke and Eureka, Sam quickly established his reputation and became Illinois' largest downstate Corvette seller, selling 100 Corvettes in 1969. Today Sam Leman Automotive stocks new BMW, Chevrolet, Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Chrysler, & Mazda as well as a large used inventory.
Besides our everyday sales presence, we also have accumulated a collection of cars from a variety of local and abroad sources that not only illustrate our interest in our products' history but also in sharing it with others. The cars that we share here, carry the story of the automotive history for enthusiasts and collectors alike. We welcome you, to share in this passion and heritage today.
