Walter M. Murphy Company

It's about time we made a start with a gallery for the famous Walter M. Murphy Company! So here it goes.


Walter Montgomery Murphy (1881-1961) founded his coachbuilding company in 1920 in Pasadena, California and is best known for their numerous creations on the Duesenberg Model J chassis. Therefore, the first two cars to grace the gallery are the Duesenberg Model J Sport Berline "The Whittell Mistress Car" and the Model J & SJ Disappearing Top Coupe.
