UP AND OVER WITH THE CAROLLA

Florida Automotive Journal
December 1970


Detroit Autobody Equipment Co. VR-1
Lou Baffa & Company, Inc., Brooklyn, New York, announces a new product, Carolla, which reportedly eliminates fatigue, cuts time and cost for the after collisions technician, service stations and mechanics, and new car dealers.  The Carolla is an ingenious device which rolls automobiles from their upright position to a side position within 10 minutes and is absolutely harmless to the car's body.

The procedure for using Carolla is as follows:

Remove battery, then jack up vehicle and remove the two road wheels.

Fit the two main Carolla members marked front and rear, on to the wheel studs, reversing the nuts on the flat side.

Fit tie bar by clamping into position and hand adjust lower braces.

Car should be tilted so gas cap is on top.  If gas cap is in center, gas tank is to be half filled or less.  Be certain nothing heavy is loose in trunk.

Roll vehicle on to side and insert angle support to prevent rolling back.

To roll vehicle back to upright position, apply this procedure in reverse order after first jacking up side of car again.

The Carolla, an all steel, all British product weighs approximately 90 lbs.  The main members are fabricated from 2 by 2 inch rectangular hollow section steel and all brackets are structural steel.

The Carolla is recommended for undercoating; underbody repairs, including chassis, underbody welding, exhaust systems, engine repairs; and diagnosing frame damage.  The Carolla is also excellent for the dealer who wants to display a new automobile on its side and bring out features under the car.
