Welcome to The Murphy Auto Museum
The Murphy Auto Museum, located in Oxnard, California, is a collection of over 90 beautiful vintage automobiles and Americana housed inside a 30,000 square foot facility. Our unique collection spans from 1903 to present day.
We are also home to one of the largest H/O scale train layouts, with many scale miles of track. Enjoy watching passenger and freight trains as they wind their way through cities, towns and the countryside.
We are open on Wednesdays, 6pm-10pm and on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, from 10am-4pm, or by appointment for special groups. We have exciting new exhibits planned each quarter in our main showroom and various community activities throughout the year. We hope you come visit us soon!
1946 Dodge Stakebed Truck
Built in Los Angeles as a pickup with a flathead six cylinder, this truck now sports a custom oak flatbed and a "modern" slant 6 engine. This "Job Rated" Dodge was an Ojai farm truck for most of its life. After an extensive ground up rehab, modern upgrades were added and it's looking forward to another 50 years of service.
