Anyone familiar with the Ford machines that can tell me what the black piece on these Ford machines or are they just knock-off machines? A big plus to anyone that can identify and date the machine. Thanks

It appears to be a legit Ford machine and there are a lot of them out there with the black chute cover assembly. Anecdotally, I have heard that Ford put this version out in later years to accommodate the vending of larger product.

So did this addition cover the serial number plates on the machines? Or were they removed? Thanks for responding.

Unfortunately I don't know. This forum is focused more on active vending business than antique restoration so (unless someone else chimes in) you may have better luck on a site that caters more to that part of the industry. There is a refurb forum here as well but most of the activity there seems to be about full line vending machines. Sorry I couldn't offer more assistance. Good luck in your research.
