Comments: The GBV-50 sometimes referred to as the "Starlet" in brochures is a "slider" type vending cooler. It could vend up five flavors of various sized bottles. These machines are not embossed like the Ideal 55B, a close cousin. The access door on the side allowed the bottles to be placed into the rack as well as load warm sodas in the precool area. Being the GBV-50 was introduced in 1959, they usually had the Coca-Cola Fishtail Logo applied to the front of the cooler. One thing to note is that there are a few versions of coin mech housings as can be seen in the three different ones pictured.
