Original Wood & Pickett
Rare Mercedes-Benz headlights option. It is believed that these were only fitted to actor Omar Sharif's Margrave and one other car.
The ultimate Mini and serious head turner
Formerly part of a significate private collection
Fitted with air conditioning   First registered 'BUV 212H', this 1970 Mini was originally built by Wood & Pickett and restored in the early 1990s using as many of the original car's components as possible, including the Mercedes-Benz headlight units, a rare option. It is believed that these were fitted only to actor Omar Sharif's Margrave and one other car. The roof has been de-seamed, as per the original Wood & Pickett Minis, and there are twin fuel tanks and an electric pump. Fitted with a 1,380cc engine incorporating a Steve Harris big-valve cylinder head, twin 1┬Ż" SU carburettors, and a long centre branch exhaust manifold. Power is transmitted via a Jack Knight five-speed gearbox, while other noteworthy features include adjustable Spax gas dampers, 6Jx10" Revolution alloy wheels, Mini Cooper front disc brakes, and Superfine alloy rear drums. The interior's rear seats have been specially made to match the front bucket seats, which have been re-trimmed in Connolly hide. It has Wilton carpeting, with sound deadening material underneath. Air conditioning, rarely seen in Minis, is another interesting feature, as are the tinted side windows and top-tinted windscreen. The front windows are electrically operated. This particular example is possibly one of the most desirable of all of the Wood & Pickett cars, having been part of a significant private collection. It is on the button road ready for immediate use. Wood & Pickett Ltd was founded in the early 1960s by Bill Wood and Les Pickett, both of whom had been employed until the late 1940s by Hooper & Co, one of Britain's leading traditional coachbuilding firms. Inspired by the success of Harold Radford's upmarket Mini de Ville, Wood & Pickett decided to specialise in converting Minis to similarly luxurious specification, calling their version the 'Margrave'. In 1986 Wood & Pickett was purchased by Henlys, under whose ownership greater emphasis was placed on their highly profitable conversions for the Range Rover. Since being sold by Henlys in 1989, the company has changed hands again and is still existence today in Leatherhead, Surrey where it is concentrating once more on conversions and restorations of classic Minis.   This particular example is possibly one of the most desirable of all of the Wood & Pickett cars, having been part of a significant private collection. It is on the button road ready for immediate use.   Ready for immediate viewing at┬áDD Classics Dealership in London, please┬ácall 0208 878 3355┬áfor more information.
