    Had this in my gameroom for 15 years. The people I purchased it from had it in their basement for 40 years. 100% original. Sold it last year.

    Here are my restored Ideal 55 "slider" and my original paint "survivor" LaCrosse can vendor. The 1947 Bastian-Blessing soda fountain allows me to make sodas with the CO2 water and six flavors on the syrup rail.

    I have an 1960 cavalier pictured on my avatar. Compressor died a few weeks back. Trying to figure out best way to get it running again. When people visit my gameroom its the first thing they notice. Love mine.

    those slider 55 fridges look cool.. damn expensive and every time i see them on ebay are 'local pickup only'. I dont even drink soda but I'd love to get one.

    #11 4 years ago

    Always wanted a Coke machine with a door, so I got a Cavalier 72.

    Always been interested in a soda vending machine. 2 serious questions:
    1. Can some of the bottle vendos handle something like a vitamin water?
    2. Is it possible to update the compressor to something more modern and efficient, and if so how hard is it to retrofit?

    #18 4 years ago

    Here's a place that's fun to visit in person or on line.

    http://barsandbooths.com

    Maybe they can answer the compressor questions.

    #19 4 years ago

    Here's a really old picture of mine. I searched long and hard for a Mtn. Dew machine but just kept finding Coke and Pepsi machines everywhere's I looked. Finally found this one on Ebay and picked it up in New York. Best thing I ever bought for the basement.

    #21 4 years ago

    Well, ya'll're making me jealous. I used to have a Cavalier (picked it up for $50 back in the early 90's).. Ended up giving it to a friend. He still has it and uses it, darnit.

    Good machines, guys!

    1). Most machines can handle a variety of bottles. Mine can hold pretty much anything from the 6 or 8 ounce bottles up to 20 ounces.

    2) yes, but many new compressors are crap compared to the originals.

    There is a light in there that is supposed to heat them up I believe. I just run cashews in it.

    #31 3 years ago

    I've heard these vending machines are extremely heavy and impossible to get down flights of stairs....

    #34 3 years ago

    I was talking more about soda vending machine

    #35 3 years ago

    sorry .my cavalier 7up machine weigh in at about 142lbs, hold bottles .might want to check on this style of cooler as you can get down into basement..i choose this style for the reason you state.take up less space,cheaper to run on electricity.we keep our pins in pole barn but when I die I did not want my sons to have to carry a heavy dog out.pop machines are like pins with prices..all over..keep looking and take time to find the one that fits your needs..my brother keep his ammo locked inside full size coke machines,

    1960's dr pepper machine. My father and I carried ( no dolly) up a flight of stairs into my apt. This was back when I was 225lb and a lazy tub of lard, but it was stupidly heavy. Now that I'm in shape I'd not even consider pulling that kind of stunt again.

    Bigger problem is that machines can be noisy. The noise produced can vary machine to machine.

    #38 3 years ago

    Don't have a closeup of my beat up unrestored full of ice cold beer Coke machine but you can see it next to the juke in this pic.GR4.JPG

    #39 3 years ago

    Jeeze, pins are bad enough, how heavy is a coke machine?

    Gorgeous machine! To me: Mountain Dew = nectar of the gods.

    #43 3 years ago

    Good stuff. I want to pickup a plain old "Coke machine" from the 70's or 80's at some point. Not sure why, but they remind me of my childhood more than anything.

    #44 3 years ago

    Speaking of candy machines, here's the Stoner Univendor Jr. that I restored from a "basket case" a few years ago.

    Have you seen what that stuff does to a dead mouse? After being submerged for 30 days the only thing left is the tale.

    Yea I have.. But,,, no dew is sitting in anybody's stomach for 30 days... Also, can you imagine what human stomach acid could do to anything? LOL
