Welcome! Join me in a dusty journey to the Old West, and there's even a saloon where the men play cards and the ladies hang around.
Back to reality- this thread will be more about a mechanical restoration and a playfield surface rejuvenation.
There is plenty of patina on the cabinet and playfield and to me it looks just right for a game of this vintage. This is my oldest machine - the next newest one in my collection is a 1969 Williams Post Time.
Take a look and you will see this cabinet is an odd one for sure. Williams used this "drop down cabinet" for about a year to fit a larger coin door. Why go to a larger door? They wanted 1 slot for nickels, dimes, & quarters. The mech is larger for this style - and it is a standard unit used in vending and jukeboxes. (source IPDB).
Another issue with this cabinet is it requires shorter front legs or longer back legs (Williams supplied shorter front legs). I had a friend shorten a standard set of legs by about 3 inches.
Here's a before shot- with the back leg levelers fully extended and the front levelers removed the game still has a negative tilt-
After- much better - it's not the best shot but now the lock down bar is the same height as my Post Time and Strato Flight.
Next post - on to the bottom relay board-
