    Not the lowest of low end - but for $300 and functioning - it should shine up nicely. I'm not afraid of a little planking and the backglass is gorgeous. +1 for the original documents found inside.

    I generally pay thru the nose. Getting old. Time is valuable. My cheap buy? $154 for a Queen of Diamonds.

    Heck yes!
    For that condition, with paperwork. Nice LEP buy.

    Got this beauty on eBay for $400 and a short drive. I was really lucky on the timing I guess. The backglass and playfield are in really good shape and the only issue it had, besides worn out flipper shafts (since replaced), was something that was created by 2 mangled switches on the Game Over Relay. That was resolved thanks to some good people on this site and now it’s nothing but fun.

    Just grabbed for $225, a few $ more than I thought it was worth but the chances to buy don't come around that often up here in the sticks. Basically functioning but needs lots. My first woody!

    Awesome. Don’t see many woodies come up for sale.
    Is it supposed to have wooden legs?

    It turns out that steel legs are correct:

    We played the crap out of one of those when it was on route. As I recall, the match unit was stuck on one # & we just tilted when it hit that on the third ball if we were not close to winning on score.
    Good times!

    Got my first "free" pin. They were asking $500, and before I left saying sorry I didn't want it. They asked me to take if for free. Restoring this one was beyond my skill set, so sold for a nominal amount to a Pinsider who will give it the TLC it needs and deserves.

    Turned out 'low-end' in price only....pulled out of an old steel shed right beside a lake it turned out fantastic for about a $400 US investment. That would include the pop bumpers coming yet. Didn't want to order them until I had liftoff....

    Guess you beat the clock on grabbing that one.

    Bally Beat the Clock is a cool and rare game too. I had one. Another that got away. Damn all those new pins that are being made. Something always has to go when I get something new. You will enjoy Beat The Clock when you get it cleaned up and running. Fun one based on time and not balls played. Definitely different, but in a very good way.

    #216 87 days ago

    It's great for multi player. ....never know which order someone is finished their game.

    Picking up the new pops this week.

    #217 86 days ago

    Im not sure if i am a "low end pin" man or not. Maybe 50/50.
