The Mills 120-B was manufactured from 1946 to 1953. It was used by many different soda manufacturing companies and was customized to their particular brand by applying decals. Exceptions to this were the machines manufactured specifically for the Coca-Cola Company. Their soda vendors were painted red and had a Coca-Cola bottle encased in Plexiglas within the door located on the front of the machine.
These two photos are from a vintage brochure that features machines made for the Coca-Cola Company. The photos show the Mills 120-B and the Mills 120-B2. These machines had the capacity to vend 120 8-ounce bottles and pre-cool 58. The Mills 120 machines were very heavy for their size, weighing 550 lbs., so they’re not all that popular with collectors today.
