The Glasco GBV-60 chest cooler was an upgraded version of the Glasco GBV-50 that we featured last year. The 60 is a more square cooler than its predecessor. It is top loading and can vend up to five flavor selections (including TAB, as the ad states—remember TAB?). This is called a “slider” type chest cooler because it operates by opening the lid and sliding a Coca-Cola bottle to the opening before lifting it out. The Glasco 60 is capable of vending either 60 6-ounce bottles or 55 12-or 16-ounce bottles. It has space to pre-cool 30 bottles of any size.
Glasco manufactured soda vendors exclusively for Coca-Cola and the GBV-60 was manufactured in the early 1960s. It cools “with dry forced-air to eliminate defrosting”. It is constructed of steel with a baked enamel finish.
