The Cavalier CS-72 is a slant shelf machine that didn't have a crank handle to vend the sodas. This machine automatically released one bottle for removal once change was deposited.
unique feature for a fifties machine is the electric coin mechanism
which eliminates the need to push down a handle to vend your soda.
This allows you to set your machine for current prices and makes the
C72 a perfect choice for restaurants and retail locations. Another
feature of the 72 is the red Have a Coke lens on the front door
which illuminates when the proper amount of money has been inserted.
One of the most sought after machines ever produced, the 72 is an
undisputed classic. Available with an all white front door or the
more traditional red and white.
These machines are commonly restored to resemble the Vendo 81 with a "white top"; however, the Cavalier CS-72 originally came with an all white front door and red cabinet with a "white top".
