I just bought this vintage Coca Cola cooler at an auction the other day and I have no information on it at all. It was made by True Manufacturing out of St. Louis Missouri and the serial number is
1-21389. I wondering if someone could tell me what year this was made and were I can get parts for it? It does run good, the condenser fan makes a little noise. The inside has all the parts and it has some surface rust on the inside that's not too bad, all in all it is a pretty nice cooler. I was also wondering if someone could tell me about what its worth the way it is and how much it would be worth restored? Any information anyone can give me would be Greatly Appreciated!!

    I bought this at the auction for $75.00, so I wasn't too worried about how much I knew about it at the time. I got it home plugged it in and it got down to 32 degrees in 20 minutes. So I'm happy with it!
