old 40's westinghouse coke cooler I restored

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

old 40's westinghouse coke cooler I restored

Postby Drfting1 » Wed Feb 22, 2017 9:51 am

was out riding the Bike with the wife, came across a garage sale that had this sitting out there, gave them a deposit of what I had in my pocket and was back in an hour with rest of cash and truck.... thought it would be a good challenge to restore hand paint the lettering, had an old Harley tank laying around and shot that also while I was at it, vinyl decaled that and cleared over it..

Too cool! I have always thought it would be neat to have an old working drink box or drink vending machine like that in my shop!
