Westinghouse Coke Machine Restoration

resize301396.JPG

Grand America Jukebox also restores and repairs Coke / Coca Cola chest soda machines as well. Pictured is a Coca-Cola Westinghouse WD-12 soda machine we restored. Chest soda machines are very versatile, having no actual vend mechanism, just a large open area. They can hold beverages as well as food. They also remain cold longer than an upright soda machine. For the WD-12 Coca Cola Machine pictured, we performed a full restoration, added two-tone paint and a NEW cooling system

The Westinghouse WD-12 Coca Cola machine came in solid red with red lids as did the next series Westinghouse built, the WH-12. Later, in 1956 they added two-tone paint with a stainless steel lid in the front to the WH-12. We simply added the two-tone paint

The back cover was missing. We made a pattern and cut it out with a water jet machine

We bent and fit the new cover, then welded it together

    

Backside fully restored

After paint, we have a nice, removable back cover. The WD-12 has the cooling lines run up the back, left side of the machine as pictured. The next series Westinghouse made was the WH-12 which had a different cooling system. So, the lines ran up the center of the back and it had two "Drink Coca-Cola" signs
