Vintage Pop Machine

I love this thing and have owned it for years, but can't take it to England when we move.

Early to mid 60's Vendo Soda Machine (has Vendo 56 & Vendo 63 parts), in great unrestored working condition. Current value estimated at $300-500, restored as new value around the +/- $3500 range.
So cool for a game room, garage or other man-cave.
Located in Denver, CO $250 OBO

Art Vigil

Here, let me help translate: For those on the east coast, it's a soda machine, and west coast it's a coke machine.

And in Boston it is a tonic machine. Very cool whatever you want to call it. Wish it was local, would go nice with my vintage bumper car collection.

It is a Coke machine in the deep south, and pop machine in the Chicago area.

Tonic machine? I grew up north of Boston and I've never heard one referred to as a tonic machine. It's a Coke Machine.

I love the machine. I wonder how much it would cost to get it to the Chicago area? I could have pop in the garage!

I really dated myself JP. Back in that machine's era, Bostonians called soda, tonic. I was born and raised on the N. Shore and that was the way it was.......

Bump for a really cool machine.

Ken,

That's interesting. Both my parents grew up on the North Shore. I will show them the picture and ask them what they would call it.

Nice almost Cronkite quote. And that's the way it is.....now that would be dating yourself!

Arthur, Do you know if that is the old pop machine that was outside of what I think was a flower shop on about 6th and Detroit. Adjacent from St. Johns Catholic School. Think it is Good Shepard now. It looks just like the one that was there when I was a kid.

Cool Machine.

If no one out there wants it, I'll buy it Art. I'm not a collector but it would be handy to have. Easier picked up that way too I guess compared to shippin' it somewhere.

I never see you but I'll miss knowing you're around. When you get bored with England and come home you can have it back.

Warm regards,
Rod


Are you guys old enough to remember Duffy's soda pop?

Cool Machine.
Michael, I purchased the machine from my X-wife in the mid-nineties when her retail business in Westminster shut down, but I suppose it's possible as I haven't seen another like it in Colorado. I remember these machines as a kid, I always thought that if I tried really really hard, I just might be able to lift the release high enough to sneak out a bottle (or can)without paying, but I never did. Maybe for me that was part of the appeal - now I own the key to get in whenever I want

Hey Rod - nice to hear from you! Give me a call (I'll PM you) and we'll figure out when to meet up. I'm pretty sure that as long as there are still Rovers in England, I won't be living back here for a while, but thanks for the offer! I will be back at least once a year to visit, so maybe we can set up a visitation schedule in exchange for Rover parts - ha ha.

Regards,
Art
