     Wood & Pickett 
- From the Wood and Pickett brochure of 1983: 
A tradition of superb craftmanship dating back to 1947, the finest leathers and veneers, undoubted design flair and a very special range of cars built to suit individual requirements of the most discerning customer.
These are the qualities which have created an international reputation.
These are the qualities which make Wood and Pickett unique.
- Special cars for special people.
As a powerful four wheel drive vehicle, with a superb cross country performance, smart styling and 
comfort, the Range Rover represented an ideal car on which Wood and Pickett could exercise their 
renowned skills. Dedicated to maintaining an impeccably high standard, the team of highly skilled 
designers and craftsmen at Wood and Pickett have produced an astonishingly wide series of Range 
Rover adaptions. 
There are versions with longer wheelbases; a multi role design aimed specifically at the needs and           Wood & Pickett conversion from early 70's with A/C on the roof
special conditions of the Middle East and easily adapted for police or military use; a convertible
model with power operated seats for prestige and ceremonial purposes; models especially suited 
to hunting and even a version with six wheels. 
Each model required considerable development work and this, together with the Wood and Pickett 
marketing philosophy has resulted in the most extensive range of interior and exterior options 
available for any vehicle in the world today. 
Customers can select from a variety of luxurious interiors each of which incorporates the leatherwork
and woodwork for which Wood and Pickett are famous. The combination of a special interior package
together with one of the many external styling alternatives results in what can truly be called a unique
We have named these very special Range Rovers - the Sheer Rover series.
