This is a Progress A2 Grapette Cooler that is very rare I have only seen 2. Funny story with this one. I was bored at work and was looking at craigslist all over the country. I found this cooler in Michigan for sale at a reasonable price. Well it was at an antique store and had no phone number so I decided to google the antique store. I found a number and called it of course it was on consignment like all their other stuff. The guy tells me that the booth is half off this week so the cooler was only $60. Which is a steal as I'm about to get off the phone with him he says hold on. He gets back off the phone and says that I am very lucky the owner just walked in the door. So I got on the phone with her after careful talking I got her to take a debit card and ship it to me. She found out that I lived in Indiana she was like I was in that small town buying a Royal Crown Ideal Slider off a guy that had a bunch of coolers. I replied do you have a Dodge Caravan and it was hard to load it between you and the seller. She said yes and I was like it was me that you bought it off. Small world when something is meant to be it will happen. This cooler belongs with me and my collection.
