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:

Sold1979 Triumph Spitfire

UPDATE: GONE, GONE, GONE – to it’s new home in Los Angeles!

This very clean British Racing Green w/ beige canvas top Spitfire is a one-owner California car that’s never been hit, and has been garaged since new. Paint was all redone, and has only minor cat-paw scratches since that can likely be buffed out. The interior, carpets and the convertible top were done less than 100 miles ago. Has its factory tonneau cover that’s like brand new, and there’s new carpet in the trunk too. When you see this car, you’ll think it’s perfect, but it does have some very tiny rust blisters way down on the rear underside seam covers (ie: snaps off and on, not part of the welded body shell) where they aren’t noticeable unless you get on your knees. The floors are solid, the trunk bottoms and sides are solid, and the factory flip front end is solid too. Drop us an email for close-up pics, more details, and for our “inch-by-inch” tour of the car. Recent tuneup, oil change and valve job, and all safety-related and mechanical systems have been checked and refurbished as needed. Receipts available on request. Runs great, drives great. 1500cc four-cylinder is plenty quick, and good on gas too! Call or email for more pics, or to make us an offer. Interesting trades considered, particularly Mini-related trades. Clear California title, and the emissions testing is included too, if it’s staying in California. $4,750. [ID# 2PMC384 ]

NOTE: Updated pics will be posted soon. These “before” pics show it before the tires were replaced, the wheels refurbished, the engine bay cleaned, and the paint washed and polished.
