MiniGuy was a DMV-licensed dealer/broker in California for 12 years, but all cars on this site are “For Sale by Owner.” For details or more info, please contact us. We also assist in having thorough pre-purchase evaluations performed, Escrow services to provide for more-secure funds and title transfers, and door-to-door transport. When considering a car for purchase – including ones on this site, it's prudent to pay for a specialist or your mechanic to check them out, since these will not necessarily have undergone the same scrutiny they would've had before being offered in MiniGuy's former showroom. We also offer "Buyers Agent" services for locating cars, or consulting, or assisting with negotiations or transactions.

NOTE: We're always seeking classic Minis for these "Consignment / For Sale by Owner" pages. Please use our Vehicle Request Form or contact us at: miniguy@miniguy.com

Drool, Drool, Slobber, Slobber…

April 5, 2004 – We at MiniGuy get a lot of visitors, and many of them are driving cool cars. Had a visit from Darryl S., with his all-steel 1929 Ford Model A that’s powered by a 350 Chevy V-8 and turbo 350 automatic trans.

It’s actually for sale, at a fraction of what it would cost you to build one like it – IF you could find a solid donor car. It reportedly sold new in California, and lived here its entire life – so there’s no rust anywhere.

It’s a sport coupe, with the top removed. Still has the rollup windows in the doors.

If you are interested, I’ve got six pages of notes, and TONS of pics.

Drop me an email or call for more details, or if you’d like an appointment to see it…

Or if you have something interesting, Darryl just might be willing to trade. He’d prefer something Ford-powered, since he’s a retired Ford salesman…

My first car – which I still own – is a ’64 Chevy El Camino, now powered by a 350 and a Muncie M-22 transmission. When I took a spin in Darryl’s rod, it made me realize I’ve still got a bit of the ‘ol street-racer left in me…
