Vintage 1930s Coca Cola Cooler Ice Chest
1930s Coca Cola Cooler
You are looking at an authentic 1930s Coca Cola cooler. This is one of the most sought after Coca Cola collectors items out there as they are becoming more and more rare. This piece shows moderate wear and would be a good restoration candidate as it is solid and very easily workable. Of course, some would choose to leave it in its present state and put it on display showing its natural patina. It has a place for bottle openers on both sides and does currently have a bottle top popper on it. The lids are there and for the most part solid but would require some hinge work. The hinges are functional and still fastened to the lids but if restored would need some reworking. The red color still shows nicely on three sides while the 4th is a little more rough than the rest. The white lettering still displays well and is easily readable.
Someone with an old Bar-B-Q house could use this as is with just a little bit of cleaning! The rustic look would fit perfectly in a restaurant that promotes antiquities and old fashion decor. The end that is a little more rough could be stuck against the corner if it was too undesirable.
If you prefer to restore it to its original state it wouldn't take much. Most everything is there except for the one bottle cap popper and the catch cans for the caps. The body of the cooler is very solid and would be easy to refinish and lay a fresh coat of Coca Cola red and white for the lettering.
This is one of the few coolers left out there that are available that is a great candidate for restoration. However, as stated, it would be a really sweet piece to display as is where the rustic, natural patina, look is desired. Clean it up, fill it with some ice, and drop in your favorite choice of Coca Cola brand products and enjoy!
