It oozes retro 1950’s! It is a great nostalgic advertising piece that displays wonderfully. It measures just under 19 high to the top of the handle and the same for the handle width. The box is 18″ x 13″ x 17 without either handle. It has a drain hole in the front and a bottle opener on the side. I would rate the cooler to be in very good or better condition. There are some scratches, scuffs and discolored spots but nothing distracting. The large handle swings and clamps down the lid just as designed with no issues. The galvanized inside and bottom are in excellent condition with no rust. One of the top aluminum corner pieces is dented and another is a bit loose. These are just held on with screws so they could easily be repaired. The original cap and chain for the drain are present but the wire loop that hooks them together is missing. Again it would be easy to fabricate one if desired. The cooler displays great just as it is! Don’t miss this opportunity to own an amazing piece of mid century soda advertising!
