Worth $40 with or without the internals. I wonder if it's empty or not.

I can go by and verify, close to the house. If anyone wants or needs it, let me know. I'll go and secure it for you. Hold it for pick up if needed. Just hate to see something like that go to waste!

No need to do so on my behalf, but thanks for offering.

Hey y'all, I'm looking for an early 70s Bally EM backbox (for 1973 Time Zone, but any from that era is acceptable, I'm painting anyway).
I don't need glass or guts (unless you have a really nice glass!) just the bare cabinet.

Finally repopulated the playfield today, so this project is back on my bench and I wanna finish it.

Preferrably somewhere near Central Florida?
Thanks!

Howdy.

I’m looking to buy a backbox/head for a 1970 Bally single player. No “guts” or game specific parts needed. Just a solid box. Needed for trip drive

If you have one- pm me? Happy to pay for shipping of course

Thx
Pete

I need a complete head assembly for Gottliebs Surf Champ. Backglass has been located.

#260 1 year ago

Looking for a later Gottlieb 2-player head with reels and guts, not sure what years are the same, for homebrew project so no particular machine, but a Gemini backglass will be going in it.

Below is an ad for two EM cabinets, no heads. I figured that someone might have the same heads, or one's that are similar and get these two parts games working.

Not exactly an EM pinball machine, but it was recommended that I post here for any possible leads or assistance. Looking for a 1984 Gottlieb Touchdown head. This is the “thin” head when Premier took over Mylstar. It could be a project head if available. I could alternately use any of the following 1984 Gottlieb title project heads: Alien Star, The Games, El Dorado City of Gold, or Ice Fever, as they were released after Touchdown. If anyone has any leads, please send me a PM. Thanks for your help and assistance.

#266 1 year ago

Anyone have populated head and/or backglass for Sound Stage by Chicago Coin?

#267 1 year ago

Looking for a cabinet for a Gottlieb Strange World. I have the head.

#268 1 year ago

Still looking for the head assembly for Gottlieb Surf Champ.

That's a tough one. I did see one for sale once a couple of years ago. I think the guy was on some kind of island off of Ohio in Lake Erie. I believe that it was listed on eBay. Anything is possible though. I once needed a head for a "Pleasure Isle", and eventually one turned up for me!

Things do happen. I have the head to a Strange World with no cabinet. Last month found a complete cabinet.

And while we're on the subject. I had a complete Neptune lower cabinet and a couple
years later I found a head 16 miles away. The numbers didn't match, so it was from a
different machine..

Well, because the numbers didn't match I hope you passed on it.

#274 11 months ago

I have an extra dealers choice head. Decent backglass

You know, there's a little story behind it.
I use to trade digitals that I got in to a Pinball Friend for EMs.
I was over to his place (16 miles away) making a trade, and I
saw a head in the far corner with no backglass. I didn't think
much of it. Then 2 or 3 weeks later out of nowhere it just dawned
on me that that was a Neptune or Hit the Deck Head. He didn't
know what it was so I loaded up a digital head I had in the barn,
went over to his place, gave it a look and sure enough.
I think that digital head I picked up in a lawn a few roads away
for $40.00. so either way I would have traded, but was very pleased
when I saw the head didn't have a Replay reel..

Back in post#239, Vince Veary said he needed a head for Bronco and I PM'd him about one I had. Today, that head got transferred, and now one more EM game is made whole. For those of you who doubt that this topic could ever work, here is some proof that a head will sometimes be united with its corresponding body. Be patient, and you just might be rewarded!

PS: If you have the "Pleasure Machines: A History of Pinball" documentary, you'll find both Vince and me in the closing credits. Small world.

I had an extra one once too, but with no backglass. I gave it away to a friend.

Speaking of, thanks to this OLD post in this thread I found a head for my Target Alpha!

Quoted from 890khz:

Hello, I'm located in Michigan, and have the following heads available (no backglasses).......
Gottlieb "Lite-A-Card" [1960],
Gottlieb "Target Alpha" [1976],
Williams "Yanks" [back door present] [1948],
Williams "Straight Flush" [missing credit wheel, due to add-a-ball configuration ?] [1970],
Williams "Soccer" [1964].
I'm looking for a complete light box (Backglass is optional) for:
Gottlieb "Dimension" [1971],
Gottlieb "Stock Car" [1969],
Gottlieb "Jungle King" [1973],
Gottlieb "Pin Wheel" [1953],
Gottlieb "Big Indian" [1974].
I'm looking for a complete cabinet (and playfield) for:
Gottlieb "Gold Strike" [1975].

Will be picking it up at Allentown, pretty excited!
Doubt it will ever come up, but I also need a head for Mini Pool!
I still have a very beat-up Aztec head should one ever need it.

#279 11 months ago

There has been some Bank-a-ball action on this thread. I just came across a complete lower cab for this game in Warren OH if anybody has a spare head. I'll see if I can get it to Allentown. Id buy it just for the posts...

Someone will probably want the plastics and maybe the apron if it’s decent.

Looking for a trashed or semi-trashed Keeney Poker Face... or ideally just need the body, extra if the plastics are intact... could pick up in A-town.
