SALES AND RESTORATION OF ALL BRANDS AND MODELS OF VINTAGE SODA MACHINES -


"sell the best and service the rest"





The WE-6 Westinghouse Chest Cooler , but instead of being a "wet" box, it's a "dry" cooler, meaning this chest needs no water in it to cool the contents. When we restore for a customer, we leave it up to the customer to choose what they want their reproduction liner produced out of. Wet coolers use stainless always and dry coolers can use stainless, copper, or galvanized.







Westinghouse, following in the footsteps of the Glascock Bros., developed in 1934 a new line of Coca-Cola coolers, both innovative in design and construction. Working with Everette Worthington, an industrial designer and Coca-Cola engineer, this new line proclaimed to be "far ahead of anything which has heretofore been developed."


Not only were the new coolers an improvement in design, they were distinctly different from anything made prior to this. The Westinghouse Chest coolers were all steel construction, welded and braced throughout. Westinghouse increased insulation and capacity. These two items were vital due to the cost and effort required in icing the machines. The sides, with the bright red background and large embossed lettering, were attractive and eye catching. The prices of the machines were only slightly higher than their 1933 Glascock predecessors of similar size. The increase in size and insulation proved to be well worth the small extra cost.


The 1934 Coca-Cola Bottler listed five different machines in the Westinghouse line - Junior Ice, Standard Ice, Master Ice, Standard Electric and Master Electric. All of these machines were somewhat similar in appearance, with the increased capacity from Junior to Master the main difference. Not only was capacity increased but so was the height of the cooler. Now they could hold the tallest beverage bottle currently being used at that time. The electric version of these coolers, using a Westinghouse compressor, kept the Coke cooled and automatically controlled under 40 degrees. The unit worked well and used the same amount of electricity as a "lightbulb." This line of coolers continued for a number of years with only slight modifications. The Giant was added in the late 30's to provide and even larger supply of Coca Cola. The 40's produced another line of highly successful machines from Westinghouse. Instead of names such as Junior and Standard, the bright red coolers were now labeled WD-5, WD-10, WD-20, WE-6 AND WE-10. Again, as before the main difference was size enabling the cooler to be put in all kinds of stores, clubs, garages, etc.


The 1950's brought upright coin-operated machines into the spotlight for Westinghouse. Again the company offered a full diversity in size with the Model WC-42T being the smallest and the Model WC-96t which was twice as tall and the Model BV-240 the largest. Still available in the mid 1950's, the "chest-type" coolers were begining to phase out since the accepted trend was the coin-operated upright machine.


Westinghouse introduced some interesting machines in the 1950's such as the model DU-144 which was an upright self-serve cooler. Similar to Vendo's "6-case vertical," it vended 144 bottles and pre-cooled 24. There was no coin mechanism in this machine so it was used indoors in offices, barber shops, drugstores, etc. Also interesting in 1958 was the introduction of Westinghouse's first square corner machine, The WC-44SK. At 18" wide by 21" deep by 59 1/2" high, it was not much bigger than its 44 bottle counterpart built by VENDO and VENDORLATOR. But, unlike them, this machine would vend standard to king size bottles with a crank of the handle. Certainly and innovative and long-lasting company, Westinghouse played an important role in the distribution of Coca-Cola for many years. Above Description Courtesy Steve Ebner ~ Fun Tronics.
