    When my parents bought our first house 35 years ago, this machine was left behind by the previous owners. I do remember it working at one point when I was very young. I have hung onto it and brought it with me through several moves but have never been able to find any information about it. Can anyone help with an aproximate value or a model name?

      I'm still looking. The closest I can guess is Vendo 123 junior. Can anyone verify that? Any ideas about aprox value?
    2. BRANDON, 11 years ago
      it looks just like the westinghouse junior coca cola vending machine produced in the 1930s and 40's which restored are worth between 2k and 4k.... but your machine has a coin operated release on it so could be worth more?? the junior is usually a ma and pa store model that usually was rung up at the till for payment..... good luck

      I've got one like this as well... The only difference between them is that mine also has a soda fountain attachment on the side. There is someone wanting to buy it from me and I am unsure of it's value. I'm not sure if it is the westinghouse junior.... If you find out anything else, please post it.

    7. Brandon, 11 years ago
      I must say DO NOT QUOTE ME I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL but if it is authentic and not a replica everything i have found. say they are worth 1k-5k U.S. dollars. value is determined by authenticity and condition. hope that helps? if you find any good info please post i would like to hear.

      I went out and took a look at it again it fills with water and asjetates and
      cools ..... the top turns when coin mech
      Allows.... the coin mech says
      signal slug rejectors inc st louis mo-....
      the compressor is a big red ball huge and the fan spins like a champ
      how can I tell if it is a replica or not it looks like it has been painted and the hinges
      Are not original
      Excuse typing on my blackberry

      I have one of these. Only mine is missing a few parts, like the cap bucket and the inner bottle holder. My mother brought it home back in the late 50's before I was born. She was helping a friend with his trash business. It had been stored in a barn that they cleaned out. As I remember it worked up until the mid 80's shortly before my Grandfather passed away. He used it to keep his drinking water and beer in it. We also kept soda in it for me and later my two sons. The top did not spin any more until I worked on it with WD-40 and got it to spin again. For all I know it may still work. It was not used again after Grandfather passed away.

      This is actually a Vendo 123 model. Ed is correct in that the cabinet is made by westinghouse and sold to Vendo Corp to add the coin op top. You can find several websites that sell reproduction parts by seaching for "vendo 123 junior parts"

      We have a Vendo Junior but it has a porcelain drinking fountain on the side. Is it still a 123? Is it worth more or less with the fountain?
    12. Jim, 11 years ago
      I am looking for the tray that goes inside the vendo 123 junior. The vendo 123 is the electric one not ice cooled. I could also use the cap catcher for the exterior bottle opener on the side. I may also need the rubber gasket for the lid. Please reply even if you have advice of how to use the machine without the tray.

      I just picked one of these up in a trade. I just got the coin mech and rotating drum working again. Took a couple hours of cleaning and it works great. If anyone hase any questions just send me an email and i'll try to help. Jim the cap catcher can be purchased for 30.00 at this website I know jims post was a long time ago but that may help someone else.
