This appears to be quite an old wine cooler. According to the serial number this product may have been manufactured October of 1985.

Cannot be October of 1985 as Wesinghouse Model WD 5 was only made in the 50's and 60'. I acquired this in 1972 and it was showing it's age then. Also this is not a wine cooler but a bright red electric Coke soda cooler

Ah I apologize. Westinghouse later used that model and serial at a later date but if it's older than 1972 there are no digital records to know exactly when it was made because digital records weren't kept until 1979

It appears that this model and serial number was also used in October of 1975 and October of 1965 as well based on Westinghouse records. Now if you know it was acquired in 1972 then that means it would have to have been made in October of 1965.
