Comments: The Progress Line of Coolers were generally used at Special Events like football games, carnivals, festivals and other gatherings of people. Removable lids hindged in the center were optional as was the Portable Bar. The Optional Bar consists of a Formica top with satin aluminum trim and a heavy vinyl plastic curtain to conceal the cooler. The Model 181 came with a Starr X Bottle Opener and Cap Catcher. The 185 Model is slightly larger version of the Progress 183 and the Progress 181.
