This is my new Ford gumball machine. Great old machine! I received this yesterday but the man I bought it from did not have a key, I found a master key for these machines for sale online and it arrived today. Couldnt wait to get this open and clean it up. It was really dirty with some old gum in it that had shriveled up and turned black. Needless to say I was sure to clean it well before filling it with some new Ford branded gumballs. While I had it apart I oiled up all the moving parts and scrubbed it all down good. Since he didnt have a key to this it came full of pennies also. Nearly 800 pennies were inside this and two dimes even! My kids love it

    Nice! Dos the tag say Lockport or Akron NY? My wifes Grandma worked at the Lockport Ford Gumball factory back in the day.

    EJW, mine is from Akron. I really like this thing. My kids have had a blast the last couple days getting gum out of this. My little girl is on a "sugar high" right now though LOL!

    Hi Jamiedpt, I'm from France, and I bought quite recently a Ford Gumball just like yours.
    I also have the same problem as you had : no key given by the last owner.

    I didn't manage to find a masterkey on the internet, would you be able to send me the adress of the website where you found the masterkey (and also the reference of the masterkey).

    best regards
