Welcome to M J Murdock Motors - Yorketown

Murdock’s is the longest standing family-owned Ford Dealership in South Australia.
The partnership with Ford spans some 89 years. Elford Edwin Murdock (E.E.) started the business in 1920 selling new Fords, Essex, Studebaker and Hudson cars, motorcycles and other mechanical repairs.

On 1st July 1925, he took on the Ford franchise  and from then on handled Ford products exclusively. The tradition continued first with Elford’s sons, John and the late Roland then grandson Michael who is the current owner and Dealer Principal since 1988.

M. J. Murdock has been awarded Ford “Club Status” 24 out of the last 25 years along with 2 “Dealer of the Year” awards. This award for excellence covers the whole spectrum of a successful operation – sales, parts and service, and customer satisfaction.

In recent years, Murdock’s have invested in Ford training along with purchasing special tools and diagnostic equipment, making it possible to service most makes and models of motor cars.
