Tad high! Vintage American pinball machines go for higher dollar amount in Australia, but even with that, is seems to be a high price. The Cabinet carvings, what looks like mylar on the playfield, and photos seem show the game needs some cleaning as well.

That's how you could tell the Gottlieb's were Australian delivered...they had the mylared playfields.

If this game had an "Over The Top" Buzzer it would be going off about now seeing it sold at $6100.00.

Gone at $6100.00 AUS Dollars, WOW. Is that based on Supply & Demand, or some rich dude with loads of extra cash?

there is a long story to the entire thing..cut a long short the seller sent a message to a friend saying he had been offered $7,500 for it (yeah right) and expected a sale around $8,500..

look at the bidding history..it just screams shill..

the guy got greedy and got burnt..no way in a million years somebody would pay that..

No, it's usually a nail with rubber bands tied around it...

Oh look...another El Dorado...grab a bargain! I'm thinking this person saw the one that just sold.

New siderails, New PF glass, New legs, New coin door-entrance plate-strike plate, etc.,etc. The total PIMP job.
