A guy called me with a Gottlieb El Dorado machine he wanted to sell. He mentioned that he had a pinball repair shop go through it & it costed $600 for the repairs. So... I am guessing I will have to pay at least that. He is a older gentleman so he isn't able to send pictues. He said it looks & plays great.

I saw on the Pinside estimate value was $1700.00 Is that correct?? For a EM?

Thanks for any info.

For that price, I'd buy it all day, every day. Even if it was a bit rough.

1700 is fine if it's in good shape.

That’s a fair price for a decent example. Repro playfields are obtainable.

Probably one of the best wedge heads ever, Gold Strike is the add a ball version
And I’d never part with either ! I grew up

Thanks for all of your replies.

I watched a few YouTube videos & it looks like a fun game.

I have both a Target Alpha and El Dorado, great EM layout and everyone loves it due to how approachable the games are.
