Vintage 1940's Cavilier Junior Airline Coca-cola Coke Drink Cooler~goodcond~ For Sale
***COCA-COLA AIRLINE COOLER***
This sale is for a fantastic vintageall originalc1940's Coca-ColaCavalier Junior Airline Cooler. These coolers were manufactured from 1948 to 1952. These are often referred to as “airline” coolers because they were taken on board small passenger planes to serve cold Cokes to the passengers during theirflights. The Coca-Cola Company and Delta Airlines are both based in Atlanta, Georgia and have been partners since the 1930s, supplying Coke to Delta passengers.
The Cavalier Junior coolers were designed to be very sleek and compact to fit within the confined space of the passenger airplanes of the time and would hold up to 12 sodas in ice. This model has a baked enamel finish and is lined in stainless steel to prevent corrosion from the ice that was used to keep the sodas cool. The cooler has a sturdy carry handle, two double-hinged, safety release lid clasps and a bottle opener on the side. This airline cooler was made by the Cavalier Corporation, which manufactured soda vending machines exclusively for the Coca-Cola Company into the 1960s. The dimensions are approximately: 17”L x 6 1/2”W x 12.5”H and weighing just over 12#. This cooler is in very nice condition for it's age. Color is still very vibrant and it is not rusted through anywhere. It does have some paint loss in places and some scratches and chipping as evident in photos. Hinges and latches are all in good working condition and it closes securely with no warpingof the lid. One of the latches is missing the c-shaped loop but they are very easy toreplace and it doesn't affect the closure of the piece.
