Mini Wood and Picket (1980)
(W&P) Margrave Elite Landau conversion of the popular Austin Morris Mini. The Alex Issigonis designed Mini became the classless but chic motor car to be seen in during the 1960s and beyond. 1960s cool saw pop idols and Royalty mixing it with the common man and with so many being built it was, perhaps, inevitable that variations on the theme would be born. W&P Ltd established itself in the 1960s and was led by Bill Wood and Les Picket, the ex-employees of the specialist coachbuilder Hooper & Co. Bill and Les specialised in meeting the increasing demand for highly luxurious Minis that had sprung up developing their own uprated Mini model, known as the Margrave, their first customer being the actress, Hayley Mills in 1964.
