The Old Vintage Vending Warehouse

I found this old photo of our warehouse from about 8 years ago, while searching our server for blog ideas. To most people it might look like just a pile of junk. But if you are a soda machine or vending machine collector, you’ll appreciate the machines in this photo.

There are two Jacob’s 56 Pepsi Light-Ups, arguably the most rare Pepsi machine ever. It also shows three rare Vendo Milk Machines and the super-rare Vendo Hot Foods Machine. Tucked in between is a VMC Pepsi 27 and behind them all and a little hard to see, are a bunch of Coca-Cola Mills soda machines.

Hope you like it.

    We aren’t able to give estimates on the value of an item. If you keep an eye on Ebay or Craig’s List, the item is sure to be listed at some point. You can also contact fun-tronicsllc.com (217) 857-1759 for more specific information on machines.

    Do you have the name of the manufacturer? Because fun-tronicsllc.com sells many parts for different machines, and you can look them up on the website by the name of the manufacturer.

    I have a Cavalier, Model CGD-C, Serial #323629….Not sure I know what to call the part I need, but I’ll call it a “junction?” It’s the disc shaped connection where the main power cord connects and routes to the inside fan, thermostat & compressor. The box work fine, except I need that part so I can get the thermostat involved. Any info would be appreciated…

  • 13 John // Mar 25, 2010 at 4:25 pm

    I have a old 7up machine that I am trying to trace information on. It s a small model that you load through a lid on the top. Hold about 48 cans I think the only tag I can find on it is on the back and says “Cavalier Corporation’ Chattanooga Tenn Model number 033-0
    Can anyone tell me anything about this machine like date use etc?

    Thanks Bruce

  • 18 Rick // Sep 23, 2010 at 11:53 pm

    If Jim is still around, the coinco machine that comes with the CS-64 there is a way to set the unit for free vend, I dont have the web address at this time or phone #, BUT there is a company in NY (I think) that rebuilds these units and knows how this is done, I have seen them on E-BAY selling rebuilt coinco machines for like $89.00 and I think the sellers name is capitolvend
    Hope this helps

    I have a vintage Cornelius Model 188852 drink box . It uses R-12. What should the pressure be on the LOW SIDE? It has 16 PSI and someone told me it should be about 6-8 PSI. I need to know because I don’t want to lose and R-12 unless I have to because it can no longer be bought.
    The box will not cut off, no matter what the temperature setting. I replaced thermostat two times . No change.
    HELP!! Thank you

    Have a Cavalier model CSS-64FS that apparently needs a new compressor. Can you help me locate one and/or tell me what one might cost? Also, is there anyway to determine approximate value of unit – it is in fair condition, needs some clean up, been stored indoors since I acquired it @20 years ago. Worked great until compressor froze up a few years ago. Coin vending had been updated from ten to fifty cents prior to my getting unit.

    I found a coke ice cooler in a barn. It has a tag on the back that says it’s from the tennessee furniture company. It doesn’t say ” Cavalier ” anywhere on the machine. It has two doors on top and four wheels on the bottom. It has a bottle opener that is stamped 1925. Can anyone help on a date or value or anything else ?

  • 27 Suzanne Browell // Feb 11, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Hi Suzanne,
    We have been out the restoration business for over 6 years now and no longer have the unrestored machines. Best to browse ebay.com

    I am in the market to purchase a small to medium size mile vending machine. I remember us having one at a gas station when I was a child (mid 60’s – early 70’s in Rochester, NY. This machine should be fully operational but looks are not important at this time. If anyone has info please get back to me. robert_graney@yahoo.com
