  Values at the left give an example of what you might pay to buy an average used pinball machine like this in as-is condition, have it restored and upgraded in a professional shop, and then crated & shipped to you in finished shape. Some values may vary depending on actual starting condition of the game, and market fluctuations.

As these numbers show, it's typically less expensive to buy one all restored and done, than to buy one as-is and pay to have it overhauled.

Average condition value is based on current monitored market values posted online at pinside.com at time of publishing.

Game Condition & Details:

PLAYFIELD: New reproduction playfield (clearcoated). New modern LED lighting installed with anti-flicker adapter set. New playfield plastics set. New drop targets. New red plastic playfield posts. All mechanical assemblies have been fully reconditioned and rebuilt with new parts including drop target banks, pop bumpers, slingshot kickers, flippers, kickout saucer/outhole. New coil sleeves installed. Fully rebuilt flippers. New flipper bats. New spinner decals installed.

Wiring harness has been fully removed and hand-cleaned and reconditioned. We have modified the flipper coil wiring and re-routed it away from switch wiring that it was originally bundled with inside the wiring harness. This was originally a factory design shortcoming with many early Bally electronic games which for some reason the factory never took the time to resolve over the years. The original flipper wiring design can cause pop bumpers and slingshot bumpers to sometimes fire randomly during play (without corresponding score/sound). This is due to electro-magnetic interference that can be present on the flipper wires when the flippers are activated/deactivated.

When flipper coils activate/deactivate, they produce a brief voltage spike which can be transferred to nearby sensitive switch wires. This can make the computer think the ball has hit a bumper, when in fact it has not. If you've spent much time playing early Bally electronic pinballs, you may have noticed this glitch peridoically on some games. Many people interpret it, or pass it off, as a bumper that is adjusted too sensitively. It is in fact a factory wiring flaw (Williams avoided this in their games by routing all their coil wires in a separate harness from the switch wires). The wiring modifications we've made to the flippers on this game virtually eliminate this problem. It can never be fully eliminated due to overall design, but it does help the game play a lot more in the way it was originally intended.

Factory-style Mylar protectors installed around pop bumpers. New disc capacitors installed on all playfield switches that use them (often missing or inoperative on most used games). New pin balls installed. Playfield fully waxed with top-quality Carnauba wax. New score & instruction card set installed.

BACKGLASS: Factory original, excellent condition.

CABINET/BACKBOX: Fully cleaned and professionally refinished and repainted in exact original artwork and colors. New stainless steel cabinet side rails with new correct smooth-head twist nails. New cabinet gliders on cabinet back and backbox underside. New power cord.

Coin door and trim completely removed, disassembled into every individual component, all fully cleaned, reconditioned, and rebuilt, including full cleaning and restoration of wiring harness. New SBA Bally decal on front of coin door. Door is set up to take quarters and dollar coins, just as it came from the factory, and all coin slots and switches are fully working. Brand new NOS dollar coin mechanism installed.

Original legs have been media-blasted and professionally repainted in factory original charcoal metallic color with catalyzed automotive acrylic enamel paint. New leg levelers, leg bolts, leg bolt plates, and cabinet leg protector pads have been installed. Leg bolts have protective nylon washers under their heads to protect leg paint from wear/tear.

Cabinet interior has been fully stripped of all parts, cleaned, and refinished/repainted. All internal parts fully restored/reconditioned and reassembled including power supply assembly (upgraded), tilt mechanism panel, speaker, ground wiring braid, backbox hardware and latches, and all mounting hardware. All wiring harnesses and sub-harnesses in the game have been removed, hand-cleaned, and re-installed. New flipper buttons and flipper button switches installed in main cabinet.

Score displays are all original and in excellent working condition. All circuit boards overhauled and rebuilt/upgraded as needed. Strobe light assembly rebuilt with new capacitors installed. Cabinet and backbox wiring harnesses fully hand-cleaned and reconditioned. New sheet of tempered playfield glass installed.

New locks installed on coin door and backbox. Lockdown bar and latch on front of main cabinet have been fully removed, disassembled, cleaned/refinished, and re-installed with new hardware and a new foam seal strip on the underside of the lockdown bar. Ball shooter reconditioned and rebuilt with new parts. New sheet of scratch-free tempered safety glass installed over playfield. New game manual and schematics included.
