About

AutoTwirler mainly manufactures auto body shop equipment for both the DIY restorer and the professional body or restoration shop.  Everything is made in our own shop in Logan, Utah.

We manufacture 3 different automotive rotisseries to fit your body and/or frame size, your shop size, and your budget.

We’re sure you’ll find the one that best suits your needs among our offering.

1.)  The AutoTwirler CLASSIC fixed height auto rotisserie which by definition does not have any jacks on it.  It is a great option for those who have a 2 post lift, forklift, etc. They could be used for industrial applications, welding jigs, painting support frames, sandblasting or powder coating.

2.) The AutoTwirler ELITE is our longest running adjustable height automotive rotisserie.   It’s made of 3″ square tubing with a swing arm is 3/16″ thick.  It goes out 19 feet long and has a 3,000 lbs capacity. It’s been used in thousands of car restorations by DIY’ers and shops alike.   It’s also been used by several government agencies, defense contractors, insurance companies, and other industrial users. Because of its longevity, it is very recognizable on TV shows like Chop Cut Rebuild, 2 Guys Garage, TruckU and others.  It is also used in top named restoration shops around the world.

3.)  Our top rotisserie is the AutoTwirler PRO, which also goes out 19 feet long and holds 3,000 lbs.  It is a little heavier built than the ELITE and has ball bearings in the pivot to make it easier to rotate.   It has an infinite balancer on it that is considered the best in the industry.   It also comes equipped with heavy duty 5″ polyurethane-over-cast-iron casters. Extensive machining is done keep the tolerances tight and eliminate all the movement in each transitionjoint.

4.)  We also manufacture custom-made, private labeled or OEM-type rotisseries, both for car bodies, frames, and industrial applications.   Contact us for details.

Having a rotisserie is great.   You can cut sheet metal out, grind, scrap, weld, paint, all out in front of you where you can see what you’re doing, do it comfortably, and do a better job.   However, not every project body you have will fit directly up to any rotisserie.   In that case, you’ll want some brackets or accessories to make mounting your car body or frame easier, faster and safer.  That’s why we make a wide selection of mounting brackets and accessories.

We have bracket kits to fit all uni-body Mopars, Mustangs, Novas, Camaros, 55-57 T-Birds, Corvettes, and many truck cabs.  We also have individual mounting brackets for each of those plus Fairlanes, Falcons, and many of the imported sports cars.   Most full frame cars can bolt directly into our mounting arms without additional brackets. We also have brackets for valance brackets for anything with a valance or tail pan.

What do you do when your car is not on the rotisserie or if you just don’t want to go that far?   We make 6 different auto body carts, four are universally adjustable to fit about anything.  The other two are specific for Mopar bodies and Mustang bodies.  Know that our carts are heavy duty and built to last.  No other carts we’ve seen matches our design or ruggedness.   All of our carts are rated for 3,000 lbs.

1.)  Body Cart PRO — top of the line.  8 body mounts, all adjustable.  Phenomenal for Corvettes and other fiberglass bodies.  Also great for repairing body mount areas and basket case projects that need more support.

2.)  Body Cart ELITE — developed to complement our Body Cart Plus by having a similar cart with larger casters to be able to go up and down on and off trailers better.  4 feet wide x 12 feet long and height adjustable with four 8″ poly-on-cast-iron casters.

3.)  Body Cart PLUS — designed to match the structure of the AutoTwirler CLASSIC and the AutoTwirler ELITE, it uses the same base design, although narrower, so you can use them in conjunction with each other if needed to replace a quarter panel or smooth out a firewall.   Also 4 feet wide x 11 feet long and height adjustable with six 5″ phenolic wheels.

4.)  Body Cart CLASSIC — a nice all-purpose cart for storing or moving bodies around the shop.  Also works great for truck cabs and beds.   Fixed height but extends out from 38″ to 65″ in either direction, staying a rectangle.  Like the ELITE, it has four 8″ poly-on-cast-iron casters.

5.)  MOPAR Body Cart — as the name implies, it bolts directly to the Mopar body at the K frame mount and the front leaf spring mount to give you a rolling body.   We also have an optional front bumper mount kit to replace the K frame half of the cart if you prefer.  Fits every uni/body Mopar except the 73-74 B bodies, which we can fit with the front bumper mount version.

6.)  Mustang Body Cart — specifically designed to fit the Mustang bodies.  The front post width will adjust to accommodate the lower A arm socket spacing, but the rear is fixed.   It is also fixed height.   If you want something more versatile and adjustable for other bodies also, look at the Body Cart Elite as an alternative.

After many requests, we now have engine stands.

a.)  Engine Build Stand — heavy duty.  2-3 inches taller than most others on the market so you don’t have to lean over and give yourself a backache.   It also does NOT lean forward when you put a 600-700 lb motor on it like most of the retail versions tend to do.

b.)  Engine Run Stand — fully adjustable to fit most Ford, Chevy, and Chrysler engines without any modifications. Compact design, yet stable so you can rev up your motor without fear of the stand torqueing on you (bell housing required).

2nd generation design, heavy duty with better wheels.

200lb weight rating

Stores axle and positions for repair work.

The side posts slide in and out for width adjustment.

The center post slides sideways for alignment up and down for height and or angle adjustment.

We also have dollies, cradles, and workstations for axles in all automotive sizes, transmissions, and the like.  Call us for details.

We introduced a new parts tree in January 2013 to make your work more stable, easier to move around and more organize.

Every painter is faced with how to hold parts for painting. We’ve seen wires from hooks, engine hoists, boards, or flimsy imported stands that you wonder will even hold the weight. Or folks putting parts on barrels or stands and painting one side at a time.

Now, you can paint both sides at the same time on our Parts Tree that is sturdy enough to even do prep work on the stand.

We manufacture car casters, or as others might refer to them as tire skates, car dollies, or auto dollies.  They are 1/4″ thick solid steel plates, bent to the shape of the tire, to all the car to sit on them directly and be pushed around by hand.  We have 2 plate sizes, either 8″ or 12″ wide.  They are painted silver so they have a nice finish and won’t rust. We have a 3.5″ roller bearing caster set.   These are all heavy duty and will work as described.  They are not your typical, and cheaper, retail store versions, that look good in the box, but don’t roll all that well.  They say you get what you pay for.  Certainly true in this case.
