I Found this one on the Detroit metro area Craigs list, It's a Very late 70's model Vendo V/VF/63-7 Pepsi machine, the ID tag states that it was made by Vendo In Italy,
This style ( Black & Red/Pepsi) has to be about the end of the model run for the V63 glass-door style vendors, as this color scheme ran thru the mid 80's as I recall, what was odd about the machine once I got the door lock drilled out ( no key of course) is tha it had can
shelves inside , and no bottle opener ( or a crown catcher inside for that matter) but was equipped with a bottle gate, soooooo, I pulled a can rack out of a Faygo VF56 Parts machine I have & in about 1/2 an hour, it's now set to vend 12-oz. aluminum cans!
It came with a Coinco S75/9800B series coinmech with about $2.00 worth of nickels in the tubes, the latest dated coin was 1985, so that kind of figures with the dating of the model year.
so I installed a new doorlock & put a new F14/t8 lamp in the Pepsi lightup & a replacement F2 starter & the marquee came back to its glowing glory, it also needed a vending portal 7watt lamp & a good cleaning inside. more pictures tomorrow, as I forgot my camera at home while I was at the shop working on it..
