The Glasco GBV50 Slider or Glasco Starlet (its marketing name) is a cooler and vending machine first introduced by Glasco in 1957. This is a chest-type cooler adapted to vend bottles manually with a coin entry plate to the left side of the machine. To use it, you had to open the lid to pick your selection, deposit a coin that would mechanically allow you to release the bottle inside, and then slide the drink to a butterfly-type release.

The Glasco Beverage Vendor 50 or GBV50 is a chest-type vending machine produced from 1957 until 1962.
It had a very simple chest design on the outside, while on the inside it was mechanically complex. The GBV50 Slider got its name because the bottles were held by the neck using 5 perpendicular sliding rails, each with the capacity to hold 10 bottles. Thus, the machine has the capacity to vend 50 bottles, while having extra storage space to pre-cool 60 more bottles.
To use it you had to open it and slide the bottles toward a butterfly-type release after inserting a coin which would then allow you to retrieve the bottle.
On the outside, it had a chromed top lid with a chrome handle. On the front, it had the fishtail Coca-Cola logo used after 1958 on some machines. It also had a bottle opener and catcher on the front left side and a Glasco metal plate logo near the top right corner.
They used a reliable Tecumseh cooling system.
