Currently trying to restore a 1950's VMC 27 Coke machine, and its taking alot of time and money. Every little part is costing more than I thought, so other projects have been set aside.
I wanted to find all the parts to these truck before I posted them, but its going be awhile before I get them, so just enjoying my trucks as is for now.
Its hard to find the dolly's the go with these truck, I manged to find a dolly to go with every truck seen in pictures (thats suppose to have one). My favorite truck gotta be the 1950's yellow marx truck. Hard to find for fair price, I paid 10% book price for mine. Its missing its original soda cases, I managed to find repo ones (no coke logo on them). The red Marx truck also has repo soda cases, I dont think this truck originally came with toy soda cases. I was going get tiny coca cola stickers and put them on every single case, but going wait on that. I need to find a front grill for the red marx truck, hoping to get an original but will settle for a remake.
The metalcraft truck is the only truck seen in pictures that I dont think ever had dolly. Its hard to find this truck with good decals, this one has pretty good decals. This is the harder to find metalcraft truck, its suppose to have working headlights, but mine are missing.
For now these trucks display pretty good as is, when I finished my coke machine I will try to complete these trucks.
