Another MPC production … it’s the “Coke machine on wheels”, the “Carbonated Cruiser”, it’s the 1971 Coke Vending Machine car!

The Vending Machine car was built by Steve Tansy and Glen Yealy in 1970 using Coca-Cola vending machine parts. The side panel was actually the door from a vending machine, and there was an ice cooler at the rear to store your bottles of Coke! The project was given blessing by the Coke company who supplied the machines and even suggested some additional features.
