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:

Cost to Finish:

If the work was done by a professional, the builder and fabricator estimate about $10k-$12k would be needed to complete the project. Or, if the buyer could do his own fabrication, the estimated cost could be as low as $5k.

The body does still lift off, if need be.


Shipping or Transport:

While some parts can fit inside the Mini for transport, because of the quantity and size (including 2 sets of tires, alloy wheels, etc.), the car and parts would need to be shipped via enclosed transport or trailer. (If the car was to be carried on an open trailer, the parts could fit in a pickup or van, etc.)
