A rare and highly collectible product, the vintage Coke Bar is a perfect encapsulation of everything that is great about the brand. The trademark bright red colour is offset by polished chrome, and the bar is stamped with the world-famous logo. Its manufacturers, Victor, quickly became famous for producing uniquely-themed counter coolers, and the C-45 is one of a limited range of Coca-Cola styled bars that they were commissioned to produce in 1950s. One of the largest machines that Victor ever produced, it is affectionately (though perhaps unimaginatively) nicknamed the “the four door”, for the four sliding doors that allow access to the goodies inside.
The C-45 functions as a fully-operational fridge, chilling its contents to the optimum drinking temperature of 4°C. It has capacity for over 700 bottles of Coke, or even ten cases of champagne, both of which can be stored in optional basket compartments.
The Victor C-45 is far more than a bar – it is an iconic rarity embodying the social side of the legendary beverage; an excellent representative for a drink to be enjoyed with friends.
(The model depicted is of a C-31, a smaller 3 door variety – the model we have is larger. See ‘dimensions’ on the right side of the page)
Our history with these machines stretches back over half a century – our founder, Reginald Waldersmith, was installing them on US Air Force bases back in the 1950s, not long after their manufacture. Being a relatively new invention at the time put the Coke Machines in unrivalled demand, and Reginald himself was known to occasionally share a drink with the GIs. We’ve been selling these machines since 1962, so know a thing or two about our products! Our showroom will gladly assist you on any questions you may have before or after you purchase any Games Room Company equipment.
