The "D" model, known as "Large Door", was introduced in the mid to late 50's!
Coke changed the appearance of this machine by applying a two tone paint scheme, enlarging the embossed text and moving it to the right to create a more balanced appearance. The plastic medallion in the bottle door was changed from green to clear with a white back. Making this machine highly collectible.
The "D" model was the same internally but featured a different coin mechanism and door.
