Up for sale is a 7 UP Cooler. Manufactured by Progress Refrigerator Company, Louisville, Ky. I was only able to locate two similar coolers on the internet and they were listed as “A4″ coolers. Dimensions are 13″ high (not including the lid); 19″ across and 9 wide. There is not an inner tray. Dings, scratches, paint loss and some surface rust. Please look carefully at all my pictures because they are my best description of the item. I found the following information about Progress Refrigeration on the internet. Progress was one of the largest mid-century cooler producers, whose designs were made from steel with a galvanized liner to prevent rusting. Some even included a sandwich tray in the interior compartment to keep chilled food from getting wet. The companys standard A1 model was made throughout the 1950s, with reinforced chrome corners and a handle mounted on the lid for easy removal. The A1 fit neatly on top of a unit housing empty bottles, similar to the Glascock Bros. Design, but could be easily removed for transporting or refilling. Progress advertised its portable coolers straight to drink manufacturers, with ads highlighting trends in outdoor recreation and car-based travel. Cars on the highway have hit an all-time high! Hunting and fishing license sales have broken all records! Outdoor livingbar-b-qspicnicsare at the peak of popularity! These trends have created a vast, new market for soft drinks!
