Comments: The VMC 144 came in a couple of versions as did the Vendo V-144 which is very similar. The manual version has a vending crank handle whereas the automatic version dispenses a bottle of soda once the correct change has been inserted. Early versions were painted all red while models after 1955 were painted with a "white top". Like the Vendo V-144, the VMC 144 also utilized signs mounted on the cabinet doors to attract customers. The model pictured is the 144SA which as you can see is a three selection automatic vendor. Also noteworthy is the fact that the embossed Coca- Cola version is very rare.
