Any ice cream/soda fountain collectors on here?
This is a lengthy ad,and I apologize for that,but I thought it best to list everything I have for sale here,instead of multiple individual ads.
I grew up with Prince Castle/Cock Robin ice cream stores here in Illinois as a kid.
These 2 Multimixers are unique.
Manufactured by Prince Castle Mfr.,this was the recommended work horse mixing machine used by all the McDonalds,Prince Castle & Cock Robin restaurants over the last 50 years.
Ray Croc used to sell these for a living,until one day when the McDonalds bros.of Calif. ordered 6 of them for their local hamburger business.He had to see what type of a business would require such amount of machinery.Upon his arrival he was astounded to see the booming business the McDonald Bros.had made for themselves.He soon purchased their restaraunt,and the rest is history.
These 2 mixers have been in our family for over 50 years.Very original and in fine working condition.One Jadite Green,one Bahama Beige.They have never been rebuilt,modified,painted or abused.Always thoroughly cleaned and wiped down,and the main motors bearings & each individual spindles bearings were oiled routinely all thier life.They still have their original cords & plugs,and wear the original Prince Castle Mfr. tag too,with serial & model #.Nothing has been replaced from what I can see.The removeable service top cover does show some wear,and there are a few dents on one,but that has been left alone as well as the rest has not been modified in anyway.This is one of the earlier models too,with an ON/OFF switch mounted on the bottom with an inside power light that illuminates only when the power is turned on.Later these would only turn on as each individual malt cylinder was engaged up into it.
Both serial #'s are also very low,that backs this up.
In 1985,I bought a bunch of other items from our local Cock Robin to compliment these mixers,which was going out of business.They are all defunct today,as the very last Cock Robin closed it' doors many years ago.
I planned on making my own soda fountain,but 27 years later,I realize I don't have the room I thought I would among everything else I collect,so it's time to let it all go.
I can bring any of these items to Peotone next month as well.
Thanks for looking..
