This is a Selmix soda fountain dispenser in its original, unrestored condition. It has a single head, or spout and was made by the Selmix Dispenser Corporation. This dispenser was made in the 1950s and was manufactured shortly after the original “outboard” style Selmix dispensers. Like the outboard model, this one was able to dispense a continuous flow of mixed carbonated water and soda syrup with one pull of the handle.

1950s Selmix Soda Dispenser

This machine bears the slogan, “The friendly ‘Pepper-Upper’” that was used by the Dr. Pepper/7-Up Company throughout the 1950s. The logo was changed from the original old-fashioned script to a more fun and friendly font. The chrome Selmix logo is visible in the second photo and is positioned toward the top of the machine.
