Added: 2023-03-27 10:11:09 UTC • Re-listed: 2 times (June 19th, 2023) • Ended: July 27th, 2023
Condition: Partially restored (almost original)

Price

$ 2,800

Up for sale is our freshly restored Comet. Original playfield was sadly too far gone, but the Outside Edge hardtop makes this look like new. We took our time and did our best to treat this right.

Here's a video of it in action:
https://vimeo.com/815158679

Playfield:
Outside Edge hardtop installed, shooter lane sealed using 2K Max prior to hardtop install. New spiral ramp installed, NOS Comet ramp installed. New plastics, new stickers, fresh rubbers, rebuilt flippers, new sleeves in coils, custom set of LEDs from CometLEDs.

Cabinet:
Thoroughly cleaned inside and out. Paint touched up but still has a few nicks here and there. Wood is solid throughout. Battery relocator installed in backbox.

Backglass:
Original and pristine. See photos. Displays all work great.

Everything looks and plays wonderfully. Easy loading out of a climate-controlled garage. Willing to work with a shipper at buyer's expense. (Fast Eddie lives just down the road!) Please message me if you'd like any more details or photos.

Bumping for a reduced price. These don't come up too often so we weren't sure where to price it, but given this one at $3,500 without LEDs and showing a fair bit of wear (https://pinside.com/pinball/market/classifieds/archive/142645), we thought this was fair. Very open to feedback on that front.

Thanks!

To say it doesn't come up that often might be justification for yourself but given the market history on here one has been listed 18 times in the last year and so about 1.5 per month. with that all about location and timing, LED's this day and age don't add that much any more, hardtops either increase value for some or decrease depending on who youre selling to. I personally think given this market a fair selling price for buyer and seller is around 2500, but what do i know? And i always use the phrase "Price/ value is relative to what your trying to achieve"

that an MR2 turbo in the background?

Appreciate your perspective, and you're right, all things are relative. I must have had my sorting wrong when looking through the archives so I didn't see a lot of other Comets that ran through last year. My mistake.

FWIW on the Hardtop value front I definitely agree, it depends on the buyer. I was skeptical myself but seeing it on there I'm quite impressed. I earlier did a playfield swap on a High Speed and I'm still not sure it's worth the extra effort.

FWIW this one looks like it went for $3k with a hardtop and seemingly slightly worse condition:

Anyhow, open to offers if folks are interested.

And yes, that's an MR2 indeed! It was originally a non-turbo, but it's now running a JDM turbo motor.

Hardtop is personally a huge plus for me. Looks beautiful!

Agreed! I love them. Makes slow games a blast.

Nice! Been looking for one for awhile! They’re either pristine or beat to hell!

Thank you! Most have indeed lived a pretty hard life. I've owned this one since 1996 and I've done my best to take good care of it. It's part of the family at this point.
