Cavalier Corporation Soda Machine Company

Originally starting as a sawmill, the Tennessee Furniture Company of Chattanooga opened in 1865. It began as an offshoot of the sawmill, in order to sell off the flawed pieces of wood that wouldn’t have sold otherwise. Gaston Raoul was the second owner of the furniture company. He bought an additional enterprise, the Odorless Refrigeration Company, in 1905, which enabled the Tennessee Furniture Company to rapidly become the largest manufacturer of ice coolers in the country. They chose the name “Cavalier” in 1923 for their line of cedar hope chests and soda coolers but they continued to make furniture in the division known as the Tennessee Furniture Company until 1960.

In 1935, during the Depression, the Cavalier division of the Tennessee Furniture Company began a long-standing relationship with the Coca-Cola Company. Under the name “Cavalier”, they made soda machines, coolers and picnic chests to the exacting specifications of the Coca-Cola Company. In 1938 the company name was officially changed to the Cavalier Corporation. Some of the early coolers made by Cavalier include the Junior, Standard, Master and Giant model chest coolers. Cavalier made products exclusively for Coca-Cola right through the 1960’s. In 1958 Cavalier advertising proclaimed they had sold “more than half a million coolers since 1935”.

Post-WWII most vendor manufacturers were focusing on the production of upright machines, but Cavalier continued to concentrate on coolers. In 1945 they introduced the model FD-2, or the dry office cooler. It was designed for low-traffic areas like offices and retail stores. Cavalier joined other manufacturers in producing upright coin-operated vending machines in 1953 when they introduced the C-51. It had a very similar appearance to the Vendo-39; only it was larger and able to vend 51 bottles, as opposed to the Vendo’s 39 bottles.

One of the most popular Cavalier models of vending machine is the CS-72 that was produced from 1958 to 1959. This is still a very desirable machine, since it is able to vend up to nine different flavors of soda. It holds eight bottles on nine slant shelves, instead of using a conveyor system that was capable of vending only one type of soft drink. This innovative model was the first to be designed without the crank handle on the outside. Instead, once the money is deposited, the “Have a Coke” lens lights up, indicating the door is ready to be opened and a bottle of soda pulled out. Cavalier was responsible for many “firsts” in the vending market. The Cavalier Corporation was also the first to introduce a vending machine that was able to dispense either bottles or cans of soda. This was the “square-corner” C-55D vendor introduced in 1959. In the 1960’s Cavalier was taken over by the Seeburg Corporation. In turn, Seeburg was taken over by a succession of companies. In 1987 the Cavalier division filed for bankruptcy and was spun off as an employee-owned company. In August of 2000 the plant was closed for good.

  • 22 vintagevending // May 5, 2009 at 2:38 pm

    Jon and Belinda,

    For lost keys, you can either try to purchase a key that matches the lock number on your machine, or you can replace the lock mechanism. This requires drilling the lock, turning it with a flat head screwdriver to open it, removing the lock, and replacing it. I can email you the directions.

  • 23 phillipe // May 19, 2009 at 2:28 am

  • 33 A Nowell // Aug 7, 2009 at 8:16 pm

    Hi
    I’m sure you get a lot of these questions. I acquired a very old Coke machine and have been told it was one made in the first year that the Coca-Cola company stopped making “round top” machines and began making “square top” machines. The machine itself is not very high – maybe 5 or so feet? It has a flat front, and the only other features on front are the Coke Logo, a coin insert and a dispenser at the bottom. No doors, nothing to select from, all it served was a Coke at one time. About 3 years ago, I had it stored in my garage. One day the garage door was open, and a passerby stopped and offered me $3,000.00 for it. I did not sell it, but I did move it inside my house! At this particular moment in time, I wish I had sold it.

    So, as a busy single mother of two, I have finally sat down to take some time to research this treasure that I have. I do not know what year it was made. I am unable to take a digital picture for the purpose of downloading. All I can tell you is that it was made by the Cavalier Corp. in Chattanooga, TN. Serial number is 410841, model C-59E. Other misc info: 6 amps, test pressure 235 lbs.

    Do you know anything about this machine, or can you point me in the right direction?

    Thank you,
    A. Nowell

    I have a Pepsi machine with the model # 1uss-64401 made by the cavalier corporation. I have read that cavalier had a relationship with coca-cola however, this machine is advertises pepsi-cola. It is a square top machine with a glass door and hold eight different sodas. I am trying to acquire some information on this machine. Please send me a website or any information that maybe available on this machine.

  • 62 vintagevending // Mar 8, 2010 at 3:48 pm

    Shera,

    Up until the 1950’s all Cavalier models were produced exclusively for Coca-Cola. After this, they started doing other soda companies, like Pepsi. The only machine I could find that was close to yours can be seen here: http://kiddieridemall.com/bandbuss64cokemachine.htm
    You could try ebay or Craig’s List to see if anyone has posted a machine like yours, this could give you more information.

    Hi Pat,

    I’m not able to give you a value on worth, but I can tell you this machine is not extremely common. It was made in the late 50s by Cavalier, and sold to 7-Up. This was uncommon, since Cavalier had always made machines for Coca-Cola.

  • 75 vintagevending // May 17, 2010 at 11:37 am

    From your description, it looks like you have a Cavalier USS-96 which was manufactured in the 1970s. Try this link: http://soda-machines.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=293&Itemid=14
    This site also offers a forum to post your machine, and ask for a value on it. We can’t help you out with the worth, as we are not appraisers.

    We recently bought a used bed (headboard, footboard, and wood side rails)for my son’s college apartment. When we started cleaning it we found a tag reading, “Tennessee Furniture Company.” It’s serial number stamp is 919. Do you have any additional information regarding this company or the age of the bed?
    Thank you for any information you might post.

  • 92 vintagevending // Jul 6, 2010 at 10:28 am

    Debbie,

    It was made prior to 1960, because that year is when they stopped producing furniture. Sorry, but I don’t have any more information than that.

  • 93 Rich Dailey // Jul 6, 2010 at 4:02 pm

    I picked up a very decent CS-64 (D or E, not sure how to distinguish) this past weekend. Looks like it spent quite a bit of it’s life indoors, needs a little shot of freon. The mech was set for 20 cents.

    Not pristine, not worth as much as the round-tops, but I’m happy with it! Ran across this post while researching parts, etc. Great site… thanks! -from a first time Coke vending machine owner…

  • 94 Mike // Jul 25, 2010 at 8:12 am

  • 99 Sara // Sep 12, 2010 at 7:45 am

    I have a LaCrosse EC-81 soda machine that I can’t get to release the bottle dispensing mechanism. Please help – if I rewire it hot, I can get it to stay open so I know I can bypass the coin-op and get power to it but I’d like to use the coin-op (coinco FPB9800) which otherwise seems to work great, it takes money properly and gives change, you can manually lower the dispensing switch & it makes noise, just won’t release the bottles – no power to the solinoid it seems. Is this a logic board problem? Any advice would be great, thanks in advance!

  • 100 Rick // Sep 23, 2010 at 11:43 pm

    I have a Dixie Narco DN 150-5 and was hoping you could refer me to a electronic shop somewhere in San Bernadino Ca ( or anywhere) that sells old electronic parts. I am looking for the can release solinoid assy, and I heard that this places sales this kind of thing when they run across them, some company that services the newer DN machines referred me to their field service man, and he told me about it but I didn’t get the name.
    Thanks for any help or referral

    Do I need both the combination numbers and the key to open the cedar chest? I have a key that fits in the lock but won’t turn. and is this because of the combination lock?

    Will a locksmith be able to open the cedar chest? since it is approx.60 to 70 years oold?

    I purchased a Cavalier cs-72A Coke machine without a key a few years back. I hauled it to a local locksmith and they made a key (taking an impression) for a little of nothing ($8). It came out of an old filling station. It’s all original and runs perfect. It does have a baseball size rust spot on the top surface on the bottom side and scratch marks around the lock. I am thinking about selling it. My question is should I have it restored or leave it original being in the good shape it is?

    I just returned from a trip to Chattanooga for a high school reunion and have been reading the history of the city. My father worked for Cavalier from 1946 until it sold in 1964, when he was Treasurer and Comptroller. Like many children (I suspect) I was not very familiar with what my daddy’s company did. This is all so fascinating to read… thank you.

  • 206 James // Sep 20, 2012 at 3:56 pm

    I have a coke cavalier css-64fs machine. I believethe solenoid may be bad. The changer accepts the coins but the solenoid does not kick the locking mechanism over. Any information on how to test it or or how long the solenoid stays powered and if it is ac or dc voltage and how much the meter should read. I have tested the solenoid wires on dc and after I put the correct change in it reads like 45 on the meter for about 1-2 seconds. Thank you very much for any help.

  • 207 Regina // Sep 25, 2012 at 11:16 am

    I gave my husband a model number C5174F, serial number 425988. What year was is made? Is there a repair manual that can be purchased? It does cool, but it was in storage for about 20 years so we know it needs to be serviced. It appears it was originally made for bottles but was fit for cans. We would like to make it fit both. Thank you for any help.

    We are sorry, but we don’t have the information you have requested. You can try Funtronics at http://www.fun-tronicsllc.com to see if they can help you. Or perhaps, if you want to try to identify your machine, you can look at soda-machines.com. They have photos for a huge number of machines and that may help you to figure out exactly what you own.

  • 219 Sammy // Apr 28, 2013 at 1:24 pm

    I have a friend of mine that behind his boss’ house there is a Coke machine that was in the woods. We stood it up and the only place we see that is rusted is an area at bottom. It looks like the cs124 The model which I can’t see well, but the serial #293065 or 55, It has everything inside including the shelves for the drinks to roll. The air compresser looks like it’s intact. The weather stripping around the door is rotten but the machine looks like it’s in good shape. I have to go back to see if I can figure out the model. I will keep checking to see if maybe I can find out more info. thank you

    I have a 16 1/2 wide X 22 1/2 tall X 3/16 thick white glass panel that says Drink Coca Cola in red.

    There are three small holes drilled in the top that look to be fastening holes for screws or some other hardware.

    It looks identical to the panel in the Cavalier CS 96 Coca Cola Vending Machine but looks a bit more narrow and taller.

    Anyone have an idea what this panel might go into?
