Welcome to Engel’s Coach Shop

We are celebrating our 38th year in the horse-drawn vehicle and wheelwright trade.

Situated in Yellowstone Park’s virtual backyard, in the scenic foothills of the Beartooth Mountains (where our coaches are used at Roosevelt Lodge) – our small town, family owned business remains true to the art and craft of the Old West’s proudest lineage and traditions.

Whatever your interests and/or level of knowledge and expertise, you are more than welcome to stop by our 5,000 square foot shop. Here’s where we do our coach and wagon restorations, with everything that comes with wheels, wheelwright matters, buggy wheels, buggy parts, horse-drawn vehicles of all types and descriptions; singletrees, doubletrees, shafts, draft horse supplies and whatever you need in relation horse-drawn vehicles.

Plus we have put together the only instructional videos about wheelwrighting. You aren’t restricted to learning and watching in person – you can watch, and maybe even learn something, wherever you happen to be.

We are continuing to put together our video series, to include heavy wheels (new and repairs), carriage joinery, wood bending, upholstery, painting, and hub turning, with jigs, shortcuts and tips.

You are encouraged to order online via our secure shopping cart, call, email, or write. We accept Visa, Master Card, Discover and PayPal

We also ship USPS, UPS, FedEx, and truck freight.

 What do our customers say about us?

“In the past 25 years I have visited many Amish shops (more than one in each state) in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Indiana. I studied Melvin Dewitt’s book over and over, but your video took the mystery out of wheel building. Thank you!”
