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.

$22,5001900 Austin Mini

This British Racing Green (BRG) Mini is a Special Edition 40th Anniversary Sport Pack model that was reportedly sent to Holland when new, then immediately crossed the pond to Texas, where it has resided since imported in 1999. The odometer shows 8,808 original miles; all but seven were added during the seller’s ownership. The original BRG paint and original black leather interior remain in excellent, like-new condition. Always garaged in a dry climate – so there’s zero rust!
