I bought this machine from the Coca-Cola Company out-the-back-door in the early 70s - i. I have owned it for over 45 years. It was RETIRED by them as the Vending Mechanism couldnt be raised above 10 Cents. It then spent several years in storage.
My Grandkids got me motivated to Rehab it. I had the Front and Both Sides professionally painted by a buddy of mine, who owns a Paint & Body Shop. So, the finish is Car Quality including Clear Coat i.Should last for years to come. All machines of this age have some rust. He also sealed the rust he saw. Inside the cabinet with a rust inhibitor.
It also has a new Main Door Gasket. Cooling Unit is Original Kelvinator 1951.Your MAN CAVE needs this machine. I even taught them how to pour a package of TOMs ROASTED PEANUTS in the top.
