do you have a photo?

with the missing shelves I would pay no more than 100.00 for it depending on its cosmetic condition. I have seen these sell for more so good luck with your auction.

The nice thing about this machine is that its smaller than its counterpart, the uss-8-64. The drawback is that it will only vend bottles properly. You can always list in your auction that the buyer can locate replacement shelves and find a lock to make the machine complete. The coin mech may still work. Sometimes they just need a good cleaning.  You may also want to check the thermostat on the compressor to make sure its in working order; this is a common problem I find with these cavaliers. By letting potential buyers know that they wont need to do much work on the machine you will bring in more money. I saw one sell for 75 dollars on ebay a few months ago but it has some bad rust on the bottle door and the seller did not offer shipping.

Here is the auction. Quite a good deal if someone gets it for the $5. Right now its just taking up to much space in the garage and its come to the point where were about to put it out on the street for free!

Also have another cavalier machine (different model I believe) in the backyard that was put there years ago. Its in horrible condition cosmetic wise. Side of the machine looks like it had a metal golf ball shot at it, VERY big dent. My dad may not mind parting with it for free as long as someone can pick it up, ill talk to him if anyone is interested. Ill get some specs on it and post them.

You'll probably just make more by parting it out?

not a bad machine, these are great for waterbottles and long necks. All my guests say I have the coldest beer in town. You can get a light up sign for it too.

For anyone looking to bid on this, I forgot to add in the auction the machine stays at 48 degrees when on (still may need a freon charge since its so old, don't know what temp it should be running at), and the outside change slot lights up when plugged in.
