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:

1978 Austin or Morris Mini

Bob T. of Bay Shore, New York sent us this pic of “RetroMini,” a Mk1-style Mini built with a Mk3 body shell, so it has rollup windows.

Our overseas partner built this one for Bob a few years back.

Bob wrote us, “It’s a daily driver as long as there’s no salt on the roads. That’s Scituate Harbor in the background – and yes – it was frozen over when the picture was taken….

Keep sending those pics, Bob!
