know anything about this machine?
Some of the many companies
Ideal produced machines for were 7up, Coke Cola, Pepsi, Hires, Barqs, Double Cola,
Squirt, Rc Cola, Nesbits, Mission Orange, Canada Dry,Grand Prize, and others.
Out of all of them my favorites were the 7Up, because of its clean white look,
and the Rc-Cola and Squirt which were painted in a great looking bright yellow.
These machines are known as sliders because once you deposit a coin you must "slide"
your cola along the rack to release it. Most brands listed above came with embossing,
however ideal produced many machines that not.
