Vintage Jacobs 26 Coca Cola Coke Vending Machine. One of the first vending machines made by the Jacobs Company, the J-26 was featured as "coming soon" in trade publication advertising of July, 1947. Its dimensions are 19" wide x 26" deep x 54 high. It weighs about 235 pounds. One side of the machine serves as the loading door and opening it reveals a lightweight aluminum drum holding 26 bottles in nine pie-shaped compartments with enough room to chill 41 more bottles.
One crank of the handle dispenses a bottle through a chute on the skinny side. The interior components are complete and ready for rehab, the cord requires replacement.
I have owned this since 1977 and it ran at that time. The machine has been in basement storage for many years and it has not been operated. This machine is ready for reconditioning and will be a great period addition to a collection.
