( - 2005)
RIP - 1950's sports car racer Bill Murphy
Bill Murphy

For many years Bill Murphy ran an Los Angeles-area automobile dealer and a top California sports car racer in the '50s. He was a dealer for both Buick and DeSoto, he bought Kurtis 500S models - one with a DeSoto V8 and the other with a Buick Engine. As he was phasing out the DeSoto side of his dealership, he concentrated on racing with the Kurtis-Buick. He drove a Kurtis roadster powered by a 322-cu-in. displacement Buick engine and won numerous races up and down the state of California. Murphy died of congestive heart failure in Santa Monica, California on 14-July-05, age 92.
