As indicated by the "C-51" it holds 51 small 8oz glass Coke bottles which are still available today. This machine has always been either used or stored inside a building. It fully works - dispenses and cools. It is 66 inches tall, 25 inches side to side, and 21 inches front to back, including dispensing handle. Its smaller size make it more popular for homeowner use than larger machines.
Has original coin mechanism, coin box, cap catcher, and even the original glass "ATLAS Special Mason" canning jar that is used to collect the condensate water. Machine is not dated, however, my research indicates this model was made from 1950 to 1960. I suspect it was made mid to late 1950's due to the two-tone paint scheme (white top with red bottom). Earlier machines were all red in color.
Paint is original and in overall good condition - very nice shine. This is not a restored machine so it does have its share of small scuffs, scratches, dings, and some missing paint.
No major dings, dents, or physical damage. A few small surface rust areas, mostly near the bottom front some inside bottom in the compressor area, but no rust scale or rust through anywhere.
Original lock and key have been replaced. Replacement lock fits nicely and works fine. Mechanically vends for 10 cents.Insert a dime or 2 nickels, push the mechanical handle down (bottle belt inside will advance), open door, and pull out your bottle of Coke. Runs quietly and gets super cold. Currently set to cool near 32 degrees as can be seen by the picture of the thermometer in the bottle area. Cord is in good shape. I have provided good pictures to show physical condition.
