My latest scrapyard find where I work, someone scrapped this and I saw it before a mag crane got it, other wise it would be gone. now it's mine but paid more than I wanted, my boss wanted $150, got it for $125. slider and cap catcher is missing but I love that coin box, 10cents!! I remember these when I was a kid. I will restore this, original color was light green, not sure what soda Co. that would be?

    Beauty save!!!! I can't believe the boss made you pay that much more than he gave for it. That was probably a 1000% profit for him on that piece.... Damn Miser!!!! lol

    Thanks tommy1002, good to hear from ya as allways! This cooler is quite heavy with elec. motor and all, so he probably paid out maybe $40. I offered $100 so I'm ok with what I paid. take care!
