These are vintage ads for the Model A cooler manufactured by S & S products Co. of Lima, Ohio. They made this cooler form the mid-1940s to the mid 1950s. It was very similar to the Glascock ice chest in looks and for the fact that the side panels of the Model A were removable. The panels were not removable on other S & S models. This was a good soda chest for storeowners, as they could change the side panels depending on which soda brand they were selling.

This cooler was manufactured about 1940. It has dual lids that share a center hinge. It has a bottle opener and cap catcher located on the front. This cooler had a 96-bottle capacity and additional storage on the rack below for a few cases of warm soda bottles or to put the empties. Casters were standard equipment. This model originally sold for $8.75 as you can see in the ads.

Dimensions: 31” high x 32” wide x 23” deep

Capacity: 96 bottles

    Anyone know any price that these bottle coolers would now sell for if everything is complete with it but the cap catcher on it?

    I have one very similar. Did you ever find out the value? Mine is painted silver and also has a wire rack on the same side as the bottle cap opener and cap catcher.
