She's been a part of my collection since 1993. This is an all original, unrestored, working condition Vendo 44 machine. Considered the Creme de la Crème of Coca-Cola machines because of its small size. The most desirable Coca-Cola soda machine ever made, the Vendo 44 was produced exclusively for the Coca-Cola Company from 1956 to 1959. The very narrow width of this machine has made it a highly collectible machine for both the veteran collector as well as newcomers to the hobby.
These machines, when new, were very popular with storeowners because they didnt take up a lot of floor space. They were always painted what has become the classic Coca-Cola red and white. It can vend 44 8-ounce bottles, and pre-cools 9.
This has been the centerpiece of our Coke room for over 20 years. I haven't used it lately and notice the coin mechanism needs to be adjusted because the coin just goes through without vending properly.
I'm not an expect on the inner workings of this machine We mainly displayed it and didn't use it. It has a key too. Other than a few light scratches and minor dents (all indicated with my photos), this beauty would look awesome displayed in your Coke room/man cave, kitchen, office, game room or any other place you can think of to show off this conversation piece.
Dimensions: 15.5 deep by 16 wide by 57.5 high. Weight is roughly 175 pounds. Please view all photos as they show condition and feature details. As you can see, this is ALL original, including the inside paper instruction labels.
