It was professionally restored about 9 years ago, and we've had it in the family for about 8 years. It has been meticulously cared for in the time we've had it. The kids are grown and are about out of the house, so its time to let someone else enjoy it as we begin to downsize. It is in near perfect condition, minus one small dent in the upper left (tried to show in photo #5).
Works and cools perfectly, vends on 10 cents or can be set to free vend. We usually kept a jar of dimes next to the machine because the kids love actuating the lever.
Adjustable shelves allow stocking it with long or short neck soda pop or beer bottles. Feel free to contact me with any questions. Item is also advertised locally, so I reserve the right to end the ad early if it sells locally. Some of the photos do have glare in them, as it is very shiny, but the paint is perfect and stunning when seen in person. No scratches, chips or fading.
Just the one small ding mentioned. I believe its a 2-stage automotive color and clear coat. I was told the red paint code was from Ferrari.
