Mexican Mini-Cooler

Pepsi-Cola Mexican Mini Cooler

Here is a very interesting Pepsi cooler. Because it is a double-dot we know it is from the 40’s. We also think it is from Mexico because of the decals on the side of the original. It looks like more of a mini-fridge icebox than a cooler, and is definitely an original because it is embossed. We restored this many years ago and it is in the home of a private collector. We are showing the before and after but for additional photos, please visit the Retroplanet Museum at Retroplanet.com. If you have any information about this piece’s origin please blog-in and let us know.

Pepsi-Cola Mini Cooler

It is a fairly small piece measuring 33”H X 18.5”W X 15″D

Paint code PPG DCC 18431 Light Blue
A sign painter applied all the other colors by hand.

This item is not for sale. We show restored items in this blog to encourage discussion, prompt questions and further the hobby.

    I love the teal mini fridge! I would also love to surprise my girlfriend for her birthday with it. Do you know of anyone who sells something of the sort?

    I have a 1940-50’s era Pepsi-Cola Refrigerator box with the famous “Hits the Spot” jingle on the sides with the red,white and blue cap first used in the 40’s. I am interested in selling it… located in Monterey County, California. Dimensions: 7 feet long x 27 inches deep by 36 inches height.

    I’ve got a small vintage icebox in excellent condition. No scratches etc. I’m a signman for 37 years. Willing to let it go for a realistic offer. will send pictures to inquiries. I can also decorate it to your specs. It’s the kind of work I love doing anyway. signdoggy@gmail.com
