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: miniguy@miniguy.com

Yet Another (Used-To-Be-A) Mini, This Time a Truck..

Mon., June 25, 2007 – Here’s another reader submission of a used-to-be-a-Mini-at-one-time “Mini,” in this case a ’79 pickup…

Don’t know why we enjoy these so much…
.
The owner/builder reports he has spent more than six years building it. No idea how many hours that works out be, but it’s a lot of hours wasted/invested on this one-of-a-kind (thankfully!) 1979 Mini pickup.

Among a bazillion custom mods are features such as a Suzuki Swift GTI 16-valve engine w/ 5 speed, half-cut “butterfly” doors, a smoke machine (smoke exits from the sides) and a full-on PC running XP software with a touch streen inside and a monitor in the rear.
.
It’s on eBay UK again (after multiple previous tries), but the auction has closed with no bites at the minimum bid of 4,850GBP…

We can’t imagine why…
