Detailed Information
Detailed Description
Founder J.B. Nethercutt spent a lifetime establishing this collection of historic importance. Unique to automobile museums, each car on display is attentively serviced and maintained to remain as drivable as when the vehicle originally rolled off the showroom floor. On view are various Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance winners and cars once owned by movie stars, royalty and other notable personalities. The entire collection is housed in two beautifully appointed exhibit facilities located just north of Los Angeles. Housed in the Museum is the Nethercutt Automotive Research Library and Archives , one of the world’s top automotive research facilities. Just steps outside the Museum are a resplendently restored steam locomotive and railcar. Opened in 1971, The Nethercutt Collection is an endowed, not-for-profit education institution and resource for automotive enthusiasts, historians, students and scholars. It is open to the public at no charge.
