THE MOST COVETED OF ALL SODA MACHINES. THIS BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED VENDO 44 IS STUNNING. IT HAS THE FACTORY OPTIONAL WHEELS AND DOLLY HANDLE AND MEASURES 58" TALL 16" WIDE 22DEEP, AND IS IN PERFECT WORKING CONDITION. Please note this machine was made to fit the old glass bottles which are no longer made.
The new 8 oz glass bottles are a little smaller therefore don't fit perfectly. I've attached a picture showing the different size bottles next to each other.
Some people have altered/shimmed their interiors to accommodate the new bottles, I've chosen to leave the interior as it was manufactured and I simply attached removable velcro as shown in one of the pictures. The velcro works very well to take up the gap difference of the two types of bottles, however it's not perfect so there can be a bottle that will slip down and create a jam. When that happens you need to open the machine and clear the jam. I haven't used this machine that often but when I have I've found it vends best when I load about 9 bottles on each side, and refill it when it gets down to 4 per side. This is an amazing beautifully restored vendo 44 and I wanted to point out it's few very small imperfections.On the front panel of the machine next to the pull handle there is a small scratch in the paint (see picture) Also on the front panel in the white area next to the top of the L in the scrip cola there is a very small dent. Next to the key area there are two pencil tip size chips (very very small) On the right side front door of the machine there was a very thin scratch that was touched up, and three very small chips.
On the left side, the door hinge has a small scratch and another very small scratch next to the hinge. When you open the door of the machine on the back side of the door there is a black plastic cover.
There is a hairline crack on this cover as shown in the pictures. My feedback is excellent and I've tried my very best to describe this beautiful vintage machine as accurately as possible.
