From online search we found out he was made for Coca Cola bottling plants and that only 25 may have been made. We can provide this online source if you want.He moves side to side and right arm up and down and works great except a rectangular bar that is inside that connects his arm to the motor unit is broken and needs to be replaced or repaired to make his arm move again. His other issues are: paint flaking off his face and hands, some stains to his outfit and usual wear from use. He looks great for his age.
