UPDATED** - AUGUST 14, 2013

Guys, I've been at this fairly solid for over 2 months now. I think I've got a market value figured out on what are FAIR prices on solid UNRESTORED machines. I'm only touching on the most popular machines. Most of my homework has been from throughout the south and the midwest. Feel free to tell me where you think I'm off.

DISCLAIMER: Obviously most the prices out there will be well over my high end price. But I've seen enough of these prices out there to know that you can get these machines in my ranges below with a little patience and diligence. On the flip side, I've seen machines for under my low price, but it is extremely rare and/or they are just scrap.

Low end - not working/missing parts
High end - working, solid, all parts there, possible candidate for restoration

Vendo 81A - $1800 - $2300
Vendo 81B-D - $2000 - $2500
Vendo 56 - $2000 - $2500
Vendo 39 - $800 - $1000 (no drum) - $500
Vendo 44 - $2500 - $3000 (the one model that I never see anywhere for less then $3k)
Vendo 23 (standard) - $400 - $600 - No bottle drum - $100 (deemed worthless to me with no drum considering they are impossible to find)
Vendo 23 (deluxe) - $600 - $900 - No bottle drum - $200
Vendo 63 - $300 - $500 (woodgrain - $100 - $200)
Vendo 80 -$700 - $1000
Vendo 83 - $200 - $500
Vendo 90 - $200 - $400

Cavalier CMD-D\C-12 - $300 - $500
Cavalier 27 - $700 - $1500
Cavalier 51 - $500 - $1000
Cavalier 55D - $400 - $600
Cavalier 55E - $700 - $900
Cavalier 72 - $1000 - $1500
Cavalier 96 - $700 - $1200
Cavalier CSS-64 - $200 - $400
Cavalier USS-64 - $250 - $450

Westinghouse Junior - $200 - $400
Westinghouse Standard - $200 - $400
Westinghouse Master - $200 - $400 Electric - $250 - $500
Westinghouse WD-5 - $300 - $800
Westinghouse WE-6 - $250 - $800
Westinghouse WD-10 - $700 - $1000
Westinghouse WD-12 - $250- $800
Westinghouse WD-22 - $150 - $500
Westinghouse WC-42T - $500 - $800
Westinghouse WC-60 - $150 - $300 (Dial model)

VMC 33 - $500 - $800
VMC 81 - Pepsi Model - $2700 - $3500
VMC 88 - Coke Model - $2500-$3000
VMC 88 - Pepsi Model - $800 - $1200
Selectivend S-48 (DP model) - $200 - $400 No DP sign - $100 - $150
Selectivend S-48 (Glass door) - $300 - $500 No DP sign - $150 - $300

Glasco GBV-50 - $300 - $600

Ideal 55B - $300 - $600
Ideal 85B - $200 - $500

Victor C-18 (2 Door) - $800 - $1200
Victor C-31 (3 Door) - $400 - $800
Victor C-45 (4 door) - $300 - $600

This was more my cheat sheet I created for myself. Just thought I'd share, good conversation starter. Open to suggestions, criticism. Curious what you guys think on other popular models, Cav 27, Cavalier C1-55, Vendo 80, etc.

Thanks for the list!  The only one I'd argue about is the V44, I picked up a nice working original for $1250 a few years back, and I think they can still be found, although rarely, for that price.

I have passed on 2 V-39 due to no drums in the $400 range, unless it's complete or otherwise exceptional I would have a hard time going to $600. I'm a newbie, so maybe I'm passing on some deals so don't use me as an authority, just an undereducated observation.

Maine, agreed there are those out there. Personally though, never seen many under $500 that weren't just scrap iron in addition to missing the drum or other major components. I will say prices seem to be a bit better in the NE than in my region.

Vendo 44 has got to be the public's choice for best machine. I just never see these in the $2000 range let alone lower.

I think they are pretty  reasonable.  Locality will cause price difference, the East and west coasts seem to want more  for machines then the south and Midwest.

I struggled with that. I picked my V23 up for $350. It was in good shape aside from having damage to the bottle cylinders. Felt I got very lucky. Again, just don't personally see it in that price range though. But I probably could lower that by $100?

You guys need to fill me in. I never never see V44s for less then a King's ransom. Believe me it's not for lack of trying.

You're halfway there; now if you could get some data collected on all the other models, put into print with pictures of course, and then sell it as a Soda Machine Price Guide you would have a bunch of money to buy more SODA MACHINES ! ! !

Excellent work and Thank you for sharing the info ! ! !

My six cents,
