A few years back I was driving along and saw a Coke Machine with a for sale sign on it. I stopped and we agreed on $40. It was complete and worked but a bit worn.

I put it out back by the pool and for 4 years it has handled the teenagers that hung out at our house. This summer I decided to pretty it up. I still need to find a main door seal, so if anyone knows a source or alternative please let me know.

I made all the side lettering myself using a Silhouette cutter. Nut sure I would have found the correct font except I had kidney stone and while recovering I spent hours searching the font sites.

As for the other stuff I have a 39 Cavalier chest cooler I plan to restore this winter.  An older Coke clock in my workshop, A shelf full of those Toy Coke dispensers, a 7 Up as well, Some vending Machine radios, and Pepsi clock in need of a movement. But the movement is obsolete.

Anyway here are a couple of pics of the CSS-8-64, its a "P" series

Thanks, Once I found the font, it's called swansea, I used some pics of other CSS-8-64s to compute the size, using ratios.
