Custom Chevrolet Progress Picnic Cooler

Custom Chevrolet Progress Picnic CoolerThis generic Progress A1 picnic cooler was restored as an accessory for a 1957 Chevy show car. Painted the same color as the car, it was set out next to it during cruise nights. This was a fantasy piece; Progress never made a Chevrolet picnic cooler. The Chevrolet gold emblem was probably purchased from a supplier of reproduction Chevy parts like Danchuk Manufacturing, Inc.

Produced: 1940s
Dimensions: (without stand) 18”L x 13”W x 10”H
Manufactured by: Progress Refrigerator Company

Sorry, this item is not for sale. We show restored items in our museum for viewing, information and to further the hobby of collecting and restoration. We also just want to share the photos of the many items we have restored over the years.
