Horse Drawn Vehicle Restoration

"Preserving our history...one carriage at a time..."

Saving and restoring carriages and wagons is our specialty.    From simple repairs to major restorations, our attention to detail and authenticity will please the driving enthusiast as well as the collector!    Let us bring your vehicle back to beauty and service.    We often have a few vehicles for sale as well.

 Scroll down to see some of the recent projects we've completed. 

We have done several resorations for South Park City a restored frontier town in Fairplay, CO.

The before and after of this beautiful, old hearse in South Park City.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Sheepherder's wagon is also a part of the South Park City exhibit.  it was a sad sight before it came to the Wagon Shop at Woolly Bear!

 

This pretty little Democrat wagon had suffered weather damage...it's now ready to roll down the road with a pretty black and white Shire mare pulling it!  

                                                                                                           

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Below is another project from the South Park City display.  This old wagon was once a photographer's wagon and was used as a camp wagon in it's better days.  In the 'after' photo, notice the canvas roll-down curtains - all set for the hunting camp! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Sometimes, the project is just a cosmetic re-do; as the structure of the vehicle is farily sound, as was this pretty little sleigh. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sometimes though, a lot more imagination comes in to play.  The boneyard relics of the old axles and fifth-wheel appear to be beyond hope.  Charlie envisioned a little market wagon hiding there somewhere!

 

Almost nothing is

beyond hope!

 

 

 

 

The surrey below had an argument with a telephone pole....and lost. They said everyone was OK...except for the surrey!

 

 This explains our motto,

"Preserving our history, one

carriage at a time."

 

 

 Speaking of history, this is the old Circle Route stage that carried mail and passengers over the passes from Como, CO.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 You can see this coach today at South Park City in Fairplay, CO.

 

 We continue to work on buggies, sleighs and wagons that need attention.   We will be starting on a buggy/sleigh very soon.  Here's the 'before' - check back later for the 'after' version.
