Carta Blanca beer is produced by a Mexican brewery that has been in business since the late 1800’s. So it is no surprise that they know how to market their products, and in the 1950’s that included colorful coolers.
We restored this cooler about 6 years ago. It was in very tough shape, but they are rare, so we decided to put the necessary work into bringing it back. Check out the embossing and the de-bossing all over this cooler. Front, back, inside and outside the lid. We went with a bright yellow paint scheme and added the pinstriping to the sides. This cooler still resides at the Retroplanet.com offices.
We also restored a slightly different version in red, look for it in a future blog.
