Minimal non-orientable matroids have been investigated to characterize orientable matroids. The Fano matroid and the MacLane matroid are well-known minimal non-orientable matroids of rank $3$. A natural question is whether there exists a minimal non-orientable matroid of every rank $r$ with $m$ elements. In this talk, we give an answer to the question in rank $3$ that for every $m \geq 7$, there exists a minimal non-orientable matroid of rank $3$ with $m$ elements. To prove this statement, we construct two new infinite families of minimal non-orientable matroids of rank $3$.
