These are vintage photos of VMC 81 soda vending machines on an assembly line. The VMC 81 was manufactured by the Vendorlator Manufacturing Company from 1955 to 1958. Whereas Vendo made the 81 exclusively for Coca-Cola, Vendorlator made the 81 for a variety of soda makers. Some of these brands included 7Up, Dr Pepper, Royal Crown and Pepsi. These photos give you some idea of the wide variety of soda companies that the VMC 81 was made to vend.
These machines look like they’re ready for final inspection before leaving the factory. What a collector’s dream it would be to be able to walk down that line today and see the different brands on this display of VMC 81s!
