I had been aggressively looking for one since playing Nico’s beautiful example at TPF. I picked mine up locally (15 mins away) on Craigslist last year. Non-working and DIRTY as hell. It was on CL for 24 hrs before MY WIFE mentioned it while looking thru pinball ads. I couldn’t believe it when she said “an old EM called Skyrocket. You interested???”. I would have been SO pissed if I would have missed it!

Quoted from Electrocute:

Almost bought it. Just looked like it may need more than I could do. Looks like it went to the right person, congratulations.

I am going to probably just take the playfield and backglass and swap with mine. I see you do great restoration work. If you’d like to purchase the second game afterwards we can come up with a price that works for both of us and I can deliver to you?

So.. I have 2 Sky Rockets and will be selling one in the next 30-60 days.
Is there anyone interested in buying the “2nd” Sky Rocket for a lot less than the latest selling price?

So she's a project, but I think priced fair for everything that you're getting with it. It's 99.9% of the game. Playfield is blank (top and bottom), but all the guts are included. Cab is rough in the back area. Backglass is so-so. I can send pics thru text or email. Shoot me a PM. Looking for $400 for all or $550 shipped if it can be Fastenal-ed in the next week or so.

I'll donate to Pinside if sold thru this thread before posting on the main site.
