Did some picking recently and found this restored 1956 model 44 coke machine made by VMC .There is one decal that isn’t correct and I’ll change it out. Plus the bottle opener is painted and needs to be stripped and polished back to its original metal finish. The last picture shows the finish product. Hope you enjoy .
In 1957 VMC merged with Vendo . They only made this VMC 44 for 1 year 1956 . Then from 1957 to 1959 they were called Vendo 44. But still made by VMC. This weekend we were at the longest garage sale picking as always. The gentleman had 3 vendo 44 machines for sale. 2 restored and one in good condition but in need of a restoration. The other picture shows my other coke machines I’ve bought over the years. Been going to the longest yard sale in Tennessee area for over 15 years. The reason they call it the longest garage sale is because it runs from Michigan to Alabama. Always find something to bring home. Tennessee area is only a 3 hour drive from Atlanta. It’s the best place to find those hidden treasures.
