Here is a picture of a nice assortment of picnic coolers we had restored. Starting from the front we have an Acton Low Boy, Acton Junior and a Cavalier Airline cooler. Also on the floor is a Progress A1 in Squirt and Dr. Pepper and two Hemp coolers—the 9022 “tool box” and the 925.
Lined up behind on reproduction coolerette stands are Progress A1’s in 7UP, Royal Crown Cola, Pepsi Cola, Grapette and a custom Chevrolet. There is also an Acton Coca-Cola cooler.
Picnic coolers are fun to collect. Whether you collect them in original condition or buy them to restore there are hundreds of brands and models to be had so you can always be on the hunt for the next great find.
