16' Chicago Coin Ball Bowler 1959 - 1964 16' United Ball Bowler 1957 - 1963

#5 8 years ago

I am waiting for two grail EMs to be delivered and at this point I will have all that I want or can fit in my house. I was going to give "none" as my answer, but of course that is not true. There is always something else! I would like to get a Canada Dry some day.

Quoted from Hoopjohn:

6' Chicago Coin Ball Bowler 1959 - 1964 16' United Ball Bowler 1957 - 1963

1966 United Aztec FS in Manitowoc on eBay. I'll let the price police decide on the value...

I think I need to try an Add-a-ball game so maybe Ship Ahoy, Capt Card, Pop A Card, etc....

Hopefully get to play some at Allentown and maybe even find a project.

Thanks for the heads up. The 66 Aztec ball bowler is realistically worth about $500 -$800, but could possibly fetch as much as $1200 on a really good day assuming its 100% operational and 2 bidders got locked into a bidding war. Its fairly common to see beat to death unrestored ball bowlers on Ebay at the price of a complete professional restoration.
This bowler is fairly trashed cosmetically. Delaminated wood. A backglass with major flaking. The formica lane section is probably the worst I've ever seen. For certain, anything that is cosmetically this bad generally will be trashed mechanically as well.
For certain, it will never sell at $6K. If the seller relisted it with no reserve, and started at $1, its unlikely it would reach $1200.
And guess what. Joe Sixpack has a similarly beat to death machine in East Bumfucht, WI. After seeing this moron list his machine for $6K (that will never come close to selling), Joe Sixpack now assumes his unrestored bowler is worth $6K. And so it goes....

My wishlist goes back pretty far, 1954 Daisy May, and 1959 Universe. Would also like to find a Subway and a Canada Dry someday.

pete, i know of one in nice condition in sydney for sale, not mine, if interested contact me via aussie arcade

Put me down for Space Walk as well - super hard to find but great artwork and looks a real fun game to play.

Not sure what was going on with unbranded v branded backglasses though?

#14 8 years ago

"Space Walk" is extreeeeeemly hard to find. I've seen and played just about every one of the other "rare birds", but not this one. It has very significant historical value as well since it's the very last EM pinball machine ever made. Imagine having the very last one off the production line? That would be super awesome!
