The Cavalier C-27 Coca-Cola Dry Vendor
Designed as a smaller, indoor Coca-Cola vendor, the Cavalier C-27 was produced from the late-1940’s to the mid-1950’s. It was intended for use in offices and reception rooms where there was limited traffic. It was easy to operate; you inserted the proper change, turned the crank and a cold bottle of Coca-Cola was dispensed. There was a small red light beside the coin slot to let you know when the machine was empty. The original handle design was referred to as a “ship wheel handle”. Later versions of this model had a “star” handle. Examples of the original ship handle version are rare and hard to find.
This Coca-Cola vending machine could vend for 5 or 6 cents per bottle. It was equipped with a crown catcher and a slug rejecter and was able to be fitted for a changer.
