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:

Mk1 Mini Offered to Us, Well Under $2,000…

April 3, 2004 – Just after we ran our tongue-in-cheek April Fools Day item on the “two-thirds-off” Mini (see April 1 below), we got a call from a local guy selling a very-low-cost Mini. It has an 1,100cc engine with a four-speed manual transmission, and we saw it running – and driving – up until a few weeks ago when the owner borrowed the twin carb setup it had for another Mini project.

He contemplated just parting out the car, and it wasn’t until we pleaded with him not to do that, that he relented and offered it to us at a VERY CHEAP price.

Call or email us for more details, or more pics. We have a LOT of pics, of all areas of the Mini. It’s located not far from the MiniGuy showroom in Ventura…
