    Bought this in PA 15 years ago. It is in great condition, minimal scratches, no real rust, still has the bottle opener and cap catcher. The paint is still bright and vibrant. I've always looked around to find a similar one, but see mainly the jr version or slightly newer models.. Its the ice chest version, no electricity. Any one have any clue of the approximate value, I've heard a lot of contradictory information from other collectors. Any input would be great!

    2. Joeymac66, 11 years ago
      I don't know the exact year, but it is from 1930's the model is Westinghouse. Looks real good for almost 80 years old. Not sure if there is anywhere the date might me stamped, I've never looked for one.
    3. Bob, 11 years ago
      Thanks for the info...I have the serial numbers but no date that I could find either.

      I've got what looks to be the same exact one in similar shape. I've never looked for a stamp or age on the cooler itself. I've been trying to determine the value as well. Just starting to research. I bought about 15 years ago as well. When I come across any info I will share with you.

      trying to find out what these are worth i have one interested in selling it
    11. Glenn, 11 years ago
      I have 2. One like this that I converted into a 5hp go cart. Was offered a grand for it but won't sell. Can be seen on youtube "hot rod coke machine". untouched it's worth around 3 to 4 hundred,I've been told. The other is the same size but just the top half with 4 handles for carrying. Use it all the time

      I have a cooler just like yours...i have had it about 20 years.. i found a serial alphabet on inside......

      I've just recently acquired the same type box. It's in great shape with some rust. I'd like to know what it's worth. I've seen one on ebay in bad shape for $995.00. Anyone have any idea what it is worth. I'd like to sell it.

      Looks similar to the 1939 westinghouse. If it is it should measure 24" x 30" x 34". Priced in mint condition at $625.00. Older price guide though. Keep in mind prices are dropping thanks to this economy and ebay.
