This is a vintage Cavalier C-51 Coke vending machine. I don't know the exact year, but I believe these were used in both the 50's and 60's. This one is set up as a 10 cent machine. This is a nice unrestored original machine. Has some blemishes and the back cover has a dent in it.Overall a really nice original in my opinion. Key for the lock is included. This machine was in regular use in an office building conference room up until a few months ago.
I did plug it in and the motor ran fine. I kept it plugged in for about an hour when my garage was over 80 degrees and the temperature inside dropped to about 58 degrees. I didn't want to run it too long as it is old and I haven't had it checked by a refrigeration person. I would suggest having a professional look it over to make sure everything is safe and working correctly and that the seals are all proper. I also tested the vending mechanism by dropping 2 nickels in and the handle unlocked and advanced the internal "ammo-belt" to the next bottle slot.Not having a lot of experience with these. I have described this machine to the best of my ability. I can suggest a shipper if you need one.
