$ 500

This game isn't really much of a project. I bought it as it sits. I fixed an issue with one of the score relays and cleaned the score reels. It does have a problem that I can't physically fix myself due to back issues. I'll explain below.

The Good:
Game plays well. Roto Target can use some adjusting, however it will not start on its own. (See Below)
It looks like it has been professionally restored at some point (not by me or the previous owner). All chrome has been redone or replaced, and it looks like it has a new backglass, and has been nicely repainted.
New legs / levelers
Score Reels already gone through.
Stepper units in good working order.
The game appears to be shopped. All units work well, and it looks like a clean rubber ring kit on it.

The bad:
It appears a brilliant person decided to pry open the brand new or rechromed coin door to get in the game. If you look right by the lock, you can see some pry marks on the frame.
There is one problem with the game. It won't reset on its own. There is a bad switch on the score motor. I have the replacement switch, and I know exactly which switch it is. I've hurt my back recently, and just can't stay in the position for too long to replace it. It's in a difficult tight spot. I can thoroughly explain exactly how to replace it, I just literally can't physically do it. To start a game, you need to advance the ball unit yourself, then it plays and goes to game over just fine. This particular switch that needs to be replaced does that automatically when the score motor turns.
Pinball dolly, not included.

Looking for $500. I can take more pics if needed. It was beginning to rain just after I finished these, so it's in the basement again now. The price is firm, it's exactly what I have in it. I was thinking, to the right person, and if that switch was replaced, it'd be worth in the $800-$1200 range because of the cosmetics of the game.

Just want to sell it at this point, not interested in any trades. I need to free up some space, and this is one of the ones that I just don't know when I'd get to it. Let me know if you have any questions.

Wish I had the money, I'd do the drive. This is going to fly off of here.

Great price. I will take it if someone is driving past you coming to the Ohio pinball show.
