    Hello! I am new to the world of Coca-Cola refurbishing, but have a good bit of experience in refurbishing other items. From what I can tell, based on the measurements (34"H x 31"W x 25"D) and the date stamp inside the cooler, I have a May, 1942 Cavalier Standard Ice Cooler. I plan to refurbish this cooler, but was hoping this group could provide a little guidance on where to find an accurate parts list, as well as the most reliable sources for the parts too. Though there is quite a bit of obvious bodywork needed, I believe the only parts I need are the Cap Catcher and the Strip around the top that the lid sits on. Questions I have are: (1) What are the screws on the right-rear of the cooler for? Another Cap Catcher or an alternative location for it? (2) Was there any type of spigot handle or other mechanism on the front drain located under the cap catcher? Lastely, do you feel I am missing any parts I am unaware of?
    Your assistance is much appreciated!

      Hi JR, nice old ice cooler. I have a service manual that includes a parts list, send me a note at and I'll send you back an image. Yes you're right, the cap catcher & crown puller can be mounted on either side. The parts list does show a small handle on the spigot (I have a 1940 standard, the handle is not there on mine either). Hard to tell from the pics, there are castors under each corner. Fun-Tronics LLC might be able to help you out with some parts. An original cap catcher may be difficult to find. Good luck!
