After Gregor kindly sent me a copy of the W&P flier he got with his friends latest purchase I am wanting to do a W&P section on the main MK1 site.

If anyone has any information or documents on this company that they would be happy to share with the world & would be grateful to hear from you.

Thanks,

Mark F.

Good luck with that Mark,


Wood and pickett info is pretty hard to get your hands on and people that do have it dont like to part with it! It would be fantastic to have a section on W&P as there great cars. We do have a W&P boff on here and im sure he would be able to help you out!

Also i think it would be good idea to make a database of known wood and pickett cars too, as they went into liquidation so many times that everytime they where taken over they distroyed all the paperwork (so i was told) This could explain why there is so little to be found out there about them. I have one to add to your list if you decided to make a list.

You only need to take one to bits to realise why there isnt many of them about anymore! :lol:

I remember buying a Wood and Pickett Mk3 Cooper S project many years ago , I'll see I can find any photos of it. I belonged to some Arab Sheikh originally.

Somewhere I have a W&P brochure for the Sheer Rover. I'll try and dig it out.

It has all sorts in it - SD1 styled fronted Range Rovers and military conversion IIRC

I was fortunate enough to accompany my Dad when he was invited to their stand at the motorshow one year (1977?)

- they had a 6 wheel Range Rover with seats that elevated so that its owner could tend his falcons !! As a youngster, that just blew my mind.

Was that range rover blue ??

I have recollection of one of the car mags featuring a six wheel range rover project, though i suppose it could have been based on the wp one.

I can't honestly remember - but I don't think it was blue.

I know it had a highly personal yellow/beige interior - very 70's. Also had a very long sunroof with a chrome bar across the width of the roof for the birds to perch on

At the time there were a few companies offering 6-wheel conversions. IIRC the W&P offering was also 6-wheel drive which some of the others weren't

Thanks very much for the info supplied.

I have plenty to make a start on a new section, but suspect I'll mainly be relying on links to other sites not new stuff.

Hi Surf :) thanks for the kind thought.

Thats the one Chad Wilkins have for sale.
I send him some W&P info, to "spice up" the ad, as he didnt know much about W&P.
It is one very nice & unmolested car 8-)
only the wrong wheels stand out, but thats easy to take back to original spec.
