Just outside the city right on the coast is a car lover’s dream museum. Murphy Auto Museum in Oxnard houses over 40 rare, classic and beautiful machines including a collection of Packards from 1941-56. The non-profit museum collected many cars that were hidden in garages all around the area, and now displays them for admirers to appreciate. In celebration of nearly 100 years of automobiles, Dan Murphy, founder and curator, wanted to share the wide variety of distinct and classic vehicles that collectors had tucked away, never to be seen.
The Murphy Auto Museum is open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays and available for private tours by appointment during the week. While you’re at Murphy Auto Museum, don’t miss the 1,800-square-foot model railroad constructed by the Gold Coast Model Railroad Club.
Show your refined taste in fine automobiles when you arrive at the Murphy Auto Museum in a 2013 C250 Luxury Sedan from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. The luxury that you can only find in a Mercedes-Benz will prove to be timeless as the other cars on display.
