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

Many Mokes, Many Uses for Them…

May 21, 2004 – After Mark R. adopted his Mini Moke from us, he later sent us this pic. In addition to driving his Moke, he also uses it to tow his helicopter in and out of its hangar!

Mokes share all the mechanical parts, including the engine, subframes, suspension, brakes with standard Minis, so parts are readily available. Legend has it that they were originally built with the idea of selling them to the military, but they ended up catching on big in resort areas.

Off the coast of Southern California is Catalina Island. In the 1960’s and 1970’s, a concession there offered rental Mokes, and hundreds of them saw service there. The Catalina Mokes still turn up from time to time; we were offered one just a couple weeks ago.

An immaculate, fantastically restored Moke with documented Catalina history sold last year at the Monterey auctions for something like $24,000 USD.

We’ve also just been offered a 140-horsepower race Moke – its engine/transmission alone are worth over $16,000, its owner reports. It’s pricey, but scary fast! Call or email for more details and pics…
