This is a Vendo 81 Coca-Cola Machine manufactured in 1955. This is a single color (red) as opposed to the later models which were white and red.
On the bottle door it has a GREEN coke medallion instead of the WHITE one which is unique to the older models. It is considered a "mailbox" shape which makes it perfect for home use. Most of these machines were placed outside of stores and subject to the elements and angered children after they didn't receive a soda. This particular machine however was used inside a store and therefor protected from the elements and more so from children, so the machine has never seen any real major damage or weathering.It has been plugged in since 1993 and been running 24/7 without any issues since then. It has been kept in a living room in a home with no kids, no pets, and no smoking so it is still in Pristine condition and keeps drinks nice and cold. Since it was in inside machine and had no major damage absolutely no bondo was used during its restoration and is still fully metal. It can accommodate numerous sizes of bottles including the most important, 12oz long neck beer bottles, and tall soda bottles.
Included with the machine will be manuals and all associated paperwork that i have acquired over the years for this machine. It will also come with a bottle capper and several boxes of generic caps so that you could reuse the glass bottles and fill them with whatever you'd like, perhaps juice for the kids. There will also be some additional coke memorabilia that'll be included such as some coke bottles from other countries and some original coke caps out of a factory in spain. Keep in mind this machine is from the 50's and while it has been restored and is in full working order there is still wear that is present simply due to its age, but this in no way affects the machine. NOT INCLUDED with this machine but available in a separate listing in my store are original 6 1/2oz glass coke bottles with original wooden cases.
I will simply assist in having the machine empty and ready to be picked up along with the other items. Dimensions of the machine are 58" tall and 27" wide and 16 deep-it weighs about 300 pounds when empty. If you have any questions feel free to message me and they will be answered promptly.
