The machine stands upright, is blue in color and has "Drink Pepsi Cola" lettering on the front. This coin operated machine dispenses 88 bottles. The inside of this machine shows four vending hoppers which would dispense bottles alternately, into the chute, holding 88 bottles total. What makes this machine so unique is it came with a set of metal shims, allowing the machine to vend many different size bottles.
Which I believe range from 6.5oz to 12oz. The metal shims are on the sides to adjust for the different diameter bottles, and the metal shims on the back to adjust the length of the bottle. This VMC88 was the first machine to offer this feature.
