Vintage Westinghouse WD-12 Soda Machine

Retro Staff |  Comments

Produced from the mid-40s to early-50s, the WD-12 is a dry cooler, which means it cools without the use of water. Because the WD-12 cools with chilled air rather than circulating water, it has more room for soda bottles than a wet cooler. This cooler has stainless steel details including the lid and trim. The two lids are hinged in the middle so a soda can be removed from either side of the machine. This Coca-Cola machine had a total capacity of 140 bottles.
