This is an exact replica of the famous Westinghouse Junior Coke Machine that was so popular in the "Mom and Pop" stores of the 1930s and 40s. This self-serve cooler will be quite a conversation piece at your home or office! The original machine was used where a clerk was present to collect the money, which makes it ideal for home use. It enjoys an all-metal construction with embossing on all sides and under the lid, like the original. There is no bottle mechanism or coin mechanism to get in the way of any use. Don't miss the bottle opener detail on the outside, either. Vendo Corporation later purchased this machine from Westinghouse and fitted it with coin-operated top so bottle Cokes could be vended from it. This original machine was made entirely for Coca-Cola, and no other brands were used. One of the attractions of this machine is its beautiful embossing. The cooler has the Coca-Cola logo on all four sides as well as under the lid so it could be read when the top was opened. Additionally, it has "ICE COLD" embossed on the front and back. As with all our products, we've kept this machine as close to the original as possible. For example, the rubber seals under the lid are screwed on, the cap catcher and bottle opener are exactly like the original and we even included wheels on the bottom like the original for easy movement. You open the lid and you have a deep box to place cans, bottles or anything else you want to keep cool. This machine will hold 80 cans of soda. If you have the refrigeration model you even have more room for something else on top.

It has an adjustable thermostat, and is built like a tank. I was worried about it arriving with scratches and dents all over it, seeing as how UPS and FedEx practice their soccer skills on our packages, but luckily it arrived in great shape. The other reviewer said that the lid doesn't shut all the way. I think he got a bad one, because mine shuts fine. Also, when the compressor kicks on, it's not that loud. It's no louder than a fan.
Anyway, I would definately recommend buying this. Coca-Cola is timeless. I just wish they made Coke in glass bottles on a grander scale in the US and made it more readily available in grocery stores. The machine looks and functions great. You'll love it!
However sonething inside rattles when the compressor runs. This makes it noisier than any refrigerator I have ever owned.
Also the lid and sides sweat badly. Maybe inadequate insulation. The dripping condensation does not hurt my concrete shop floor where I placed it, but I would hesitate to put it inside my house where it could damage floors.
The soda we get out of the machine is ice cold and ready to drink. My 17 year old son loves it! We love especially buying glass bottles for this unit as we can find them in the local grocery stores. I see the parts are interchangeable with the original unit this was modelled form. This retro model arrived to us new, a remake of an original unit. That means, we didn't have problems of rust or anything like that.
This machine has inspired me to turn our entire dining room into a retro coke look. Am I glad I purchased it? Yes! My husband is not a retro buff and says "there's the frig!" No thanks. When I reach in to get myself a diet coke in a glass bottle, my memories go back to being 6 and my dad letting me reach into the machine and so I could pick the ice cold soda pop I wanted.
A++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++!! :o) Well done, American Retro!
Other than the two issues I mentioned we are very pleased with this cooler and adds to our coke display while keeping our beverages very cool indeed.
