This very cool looking, super-rare, original, Fruit – O – Matic vending machine is nearly impossible to find anywhere today and would be the perfect vintage vending machine to restore for a coin operated machine collector who appreciates truly unique vintage vending machines. This machine was produced by the Fruit- O. Manufacturing Company, located in Los Angeles, during the late 40’s and early 50’s.. This desirable and popular vending machine dispensed a variety of fresh, healthy, chilled fruit. This vending machine features a hermetically sealed refrigeration unit and a great looking, original, illuminated front signage display. The vending machine was commonly found in large school cafeterias and in employee lunch rooms through-out corporate America during the 50’s. The Fruit – O – Matic gained popularity from when it first appeared in the popular 1949 movie, “The Man” starring Marlon Brando. (Please, see attached image). This machine is in original “as – found” condition. The machine has been in storage for years, the electrical cord has been severed and it has not been tested.
