Saw this locally.  The sign actually has some interesting character, but this is the craziest machine I think I have ever seen.  How do you spray their "polish" onto your shoes without messing up your socks.  I would guess most would take their shoes off and hold them, but then you get polish all over your hands.  The wife would definitely shoot me if I brought this home to put in the house.  It is in good shape though, for whatever that's worth.

I would have to believe that machine was not very successful given the reasons that you mention.  The name on the marquis is not exactly PC either.  I am going to guess that machine falls into the rare but not collectible category!

I would get rid of the polish, clean the tank, lines, pump, etc.  Then I would put good ole fashion corn whiskey in it. The name would be properly fitting then.
