Classic Era of Pinball

Pinball Restoration

Games 

A Pinball machine makes a great gift for that someone that has everything and their 'coolness factor' enhances any game room environment. Everyone gravitates to them like that classic Juke box or muscle car. Quality restored 'vintage' pinball machines are a fun investment the whole family can enjoy every day and for years to come! Enjoy the sounds and feel of a classic 1970's pinball machine. 

I currently have 2 games left for sale this season and won't have anymore until around next Christmas. If there is a particular title you are interested in, let me know and I can try and locate one for you.

If you have any questions about a game or just inquiries in general, please contact me and I'll be glad to chat with you.

Gottlieb El Dorado (1975)  SOLD  02/2015

Arguably Gottlieb's BEST drop target game and one of the most sought after Wedgeheads of the '70's. Very collectable, family friendly Western themed game had a production run of only 2895 which makes it even harder to find. The design was so popular for Gottlieb they made it in many different versions i.e., 1975 Gold Strike, 1976 Target Alpha and 1977 Solar City.          

This game has had a complete mechanical restoration as per usual. Cabinet and playfield is ALL original and the coin door is also original and real nice.                                                                                                     Includes: New posts, rubber, rebuilt flippers (all 4) and flipper cabinet buttons, leg levellers/covers. All 15 targets are in beautiful original condition.

Gottlieb Royal Flush (1976) SOLD

Ahhh ... a game that's near and dear to my heart! In my opinion, Gottlieb's 'best' and most popular card themed multi player pinball machine. This highly sought after 4 player version had a production run of 12,250. 

If you played pinball in the '70's or '80's chances are you played this game. These games got played ALOT because of their popularity and most that you see today have significant wear. Don't settle for a cosmetically and mechanically challenged unrestored Kijiji nightmare! This 1976 Royal Flush has a freshly restored playfield and cabinet. The backglass is nice and bright and was preserved with Triple Thick years ago. 

Includes: new posts, rubber rings, drop targets, dip targets, flipper bats, flipper/credit buttons/bushings, pop bumper cap,  pf target faces, leg levellers/covers and plastic set.

Great addition to any games room and plays like new all over again. See more pics  Photo Gallery. Price: $2695.00

Sales and Warranty

If you live in Southern Alberta or in the East Kootenays, B.C., I can sell you a machine WITH Warranty as I stand behind every machine I sell. Delivery and set up included. I do not like to sell games beyond these locations as I cannot logistically offer Warranty for any future repairs if some should arise. 

If I sell you a game and any issues should arise with it (excluding negligence/abuse) in the first year of ownership, I will repair it free of charge. If I'm not able to come to your location for whatever reason, or if it makes more sense to deliver it to me for repair that can work.

Generally speaking, I will travel up to 250km from Fernie to sell and repair games I've sold. However, longer distance repairs can be problematic for Warranty work as I might not be able to repair it in a timely  manner due to a number of factors including weather and driving conditions. 

I do provide free support via email or phone for those 'minor issues'.  

Shipping your game

As I mentioned above, I really don't like to sell games beyond 250km from my home. Having said that, if I have to ship a game I leave that responsibility to the buyer. Again, I cannot Warranty a game I can't service myself, but every situation is different and certainly worth discussing.

I will however, assist in anyway I can such as wrapping and/or crating a game for pick up and even transporting to a local freight yard or depot for pick up.

Games I'm currently working on ...

In the Bullpen: Gottlieb Surf Champ, '300', Strange World, Target Alpha, Abra Ca Dabra and Bronco.
