Hey Guys,

My father is sick with Leukemia and I am considering selling my restored VMC 81 7Up so I can change some life priorities. The machine has been restored by myself to perfection, here are some details of the resto which I would consider it a high end resto, nothing was left out:

-Cabinet completely sand blasted and painted by an automotive shop that specializes in high end paint jobs
-Tub, shelves, bottle guides and brackets powder coated
-Chrome done by Speed and Sport, spent $800 it is beautiful
-Every other part was stripped and zinc plated either silver or yellow depending on what it was originally. Not one single screw, nut or anything on the machine that was not professionally refinished other than the light fixture but it was polished as it is made of aluminum.
-Coin Mech was done by the best in the business, Tom Barnes
-Cooling unit is new (original was missing) and was done by the best, Global Compressors
-All new seals, liner, ballast, wiring, etc.

I am looking to see if there is any interest out there. I can get more pictures for the serious buyer, it is currently safely packed away in storage at the moment. I also have a boat load of pictures of the restoration process.
