  1. I've never seen one like it. I doubt it ever had an electrical cooling unit. It may have used the Brown Mfg. original style, vertical, cap puller. The logo is the 1938 or earlier style. Kelvinator bui...
  2. I used 'The' Guide and found your unit to be either a master size Westinghouse WD-12 or a Cavalier FD-12. Those were made from 1948 - 1956. Your unit is dry and doesn't use water. Hope this helps.
  3. Hey Builder99, go to the below site. It shows you how to ID your own coolers. https://sites.google.com/site/idcocacolachestmachines193459/ Good luck.
  4. Hey Capt., Since I posted about 3 weeks ago I have discovered the diff in the cap catchers. The one posted on ebay, (2 vertical mounting holes) was used in 1934 thru 36. Your cooler has 2 horizontal ...
  5. Good advice above. Your cooler was manufactured from 1934-1938 if it's a Westinghouse, or 1936-1938 if a Cavalier. The lids didn't have embossing on them for this year range. Yours is a 1941 +/-1 yr...
  6. It could be a Master size ice cooler manufactured after 1946. We really need more pic's, without the other junk, of all four sides, the top and inside tank view before we can get down to specifics. On...
  7. That's a 1946-47 catcher off of a Westinghouse or Cavalier Dry Coca-Cola cooler. The cap puller was mounted on the cooler cabinet instead of mounting in the catcher, as in later years. I'm presently ...
  8. I agree with Daddy Nobucks. The tank date code translates to Dec. 1941.
  9. Hey Juanita, Thanks for posting a pic of a great old sign. I love it, with all of its old character. I’ve been researching old Coca-Cola chest type vending machines and have some resources at my fi...
  10. Here’s an explanation of the embossed DATE CODE on Coca-Cola Coolers found on the right tank wall end near the top. W- stands for Westinghouse as being the manufacturer of the cooler. Their number c...
  11. What you have there is a Master Ice chest that was manufactured in 1934-1938. It was made by Westinghouse or Cavalier. If you would look along the inside upper tank wall on the right end you should fi...
  12. Nice find. I would have said it was made in 1934-1938. It is a Westinghouse or Cavalier Standard Ice cooler. It’s missing the cap-catcher on the front and maybe the lid? These models did not have remo...
  13. Thanks for the comments. I’m a mechanical engineer type, retired, living in the NW of WA State. I enjoy research projects, especially when they were needed. I was surprised to find out how needed this...
  14. I messed up. Cavalier used Frigidaire cooling systems.
  15. Good point Daddy_Nobucks. I don't yet know when Cavalier started making Coca-Cola coolers. I think it might have been in 1941. Kelvinator may have been making them from 1934 to say 1940 and turned the...
  16. I've been researching the pre-1960 Vendo chest type Tops. I agree that's it Westinghouse Standard Cooler. It was cooled by putting ice in the tank around the bottles. Yours has the word 'Drink' inside...
  17. I can help with I.D.ing 1930's - 1960 Coca-Cola coolers or vending machines. You'll need to send pictures and dimensions to johnsontheoa@gmail.com Thanks and have a good one. Ted
