Classic Cars @ Murphy Auto Museum

The Murphy Auto Museum is a non-profit museum that boasts a collection of over 50 cars displayed by many collectors from the tri-county area surrounding Oxnard, California. It houses a wide variety of classic and special interest vehicles.

Many great cars in this area have been tucked and are seldom see the light of day and are, therefore, infrequently seen by the general public. When Dan Murphy retired from his neurosurgery practice in Ventura, he set about to form a non-profit museum that would house these great cars. Dan Murphy opened the museum on August 2, 2002.

The museum is located in a 16000 sq. ft. building, including an "old car showroom" area. Thanks to the assistance of Holley Gene Leffler, the museum now has an extensive vintage clothing display representing all decades from the 1890s to the 1970s.

The museum auto collection continues to vary as they add new collectors to their family of supporters. This website is made possible by Andy’s Auto Sport, who offers auto parts for classic Ford and Mopar vehicles like the ones at the museum. If you contact them to get Ford parts or Chevy parts, make sure to tell them you were referred by the Murphy Auto Museum.

The museum is open every Saturday and Sunday from 10 am- 4 pm to serve locals and tourists. Arrangements can be made at any time for private parties and tours for automotive clubs, assisted living centers, and school groups.
