Description: As we were working on the truck, we found this empty 8 oz. can of Coke behind the door panel.
Did Redd Foxx or Demond Wilson drink this 1976 can of Coke and then shove it down behind the door panel? I wish I could get a DNA test to see if it belonged to Redd Foxx, Demond Wilson, or maybe even Grady!! I photographed the can before I removed it from where it had dropped down when we were working on the door. This is the bottom edge of the passenger door. I AM selling this on Ebay... may sell off more parts and pieces to pay for the cost of restoration!!
This 8 FL. OZ. Coca-Cola can was found behind the door panel of the passenger side door. It says “Canned under authority of the Coca-Cola Company, Atlanta, Georgia by Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California 90021.”
The Coca-Cola Bottler of Los Angeles first introduced the 8 ounce can in their market area in 1976. (Sanford and Son aired from 1972-1977 on NBC). This can was called the "California Compact". It has a UPC or “Price Strip,” which made its debut on Coke cans in 1973. The UPC numbers are 495590.
All-aluminum can with a pull tab, a skinny pull tab.
It’s got a “Triple Vertical Panel, with two “Coca Cola” logos and one “Coke” logo, printed vertically on the can.
