This brochure illustrates the Lyon 500 Coca-Cola cup vending machine. It was built in the early 1950s by the Worthington Pump & Machinery Corp. It was marketed by Lyon Industries of New York City, who partnered with Worthington in order to sell and distribute soda vending machines.

The Model 500, with its unique art deco styling, could vend 500 cups of pre-mixed Coca-Cola. It was a relatively small machine, at 60 inches high, and collectors today regard it as a rare machine.

Manufactured by:

Worthington Pump & Machinery Corp.
Harrison, New Jersey

    I don’t have the machine, but I have an original Manual and parts catalog for a the Lyon 1400 beverage vendor. Date on this manual is 8/2/1948

    Looking for vintage coke machine in the north Jersey area. The machine does not have to to be in working order but must be in good physical shape. Please e-mail me back with some direction or recommendations.
