For sale: Gottlieb Spirit

Added: November 11th, 2019
Condition: Fully restored (full original status)

Item description

Hi all,

I'm selling my Spirit.
The game plays great, partly due to it's clearcoated playfield.
The cabinet is restaurd and the game has a new MPU.
The GI and backbox is LED.
The motor has been replaced with a more silent variant but the original motor is with the game and can be installed back easily. There are no modifications done to the original parts.
Like mentioned before, the playfield is clearcoated. This is done by the previous owner and is done well. Personally I would have perfected the playfield touchups a bit more.

The Spirit it located in Groningen, The Netherlands.
I haven't looked into the shipping to America yet. I can do that if someone from the US is interested, but maybe you have a cheaper/better alternative. Just let me know so we can look into it together.

Trade offers are welcome, though I don't know if that works well with shipping.
Offers are welcome as well.

The price is set at 4250 EURO, in the current conversion this will come to be: 4688.85 USD.

Thanks!

Rarely seen for sale here in the states, can't imagine it staying for sale long it is such a sought after pin. GLWTS

#3 6 months ago

That would sell quickly in the states at that price!

#4 6 months ago

Cool looking restore! Love system 80 games.

#5 6 months ago

That would sell instantly in that price if you were here in the states. Not enough of that title here to satisfy the demand for it.

#6 6 months ago

Interesting layout, I'll have to look that one up in my spare time.

#7 6 months ago

Such a great game. Good luck

I asked for a quote on parcelparcel and got a 1267 euro quote for DHL including insurance

A BUMP in Steve's memory, who epitomized the good spirit in this hobby. I am sure someone will be quite happy to add the machine to their collection, good luck with the sale.

Offers are welcome as well. And if anyone has any good experience with a reasonably priced shipper I would love to here.

The quote I got is about 1400 Dollar including insurance.

I made a gameplay video and uploaded it unlisted on youtube

#12 6 months ago

super interesting game, I love it. Extremely hard to find for sale in NA

#13 6 months ago

Yeah usually I NEVER watch these kind of video's but HOLY CRAP that was entertaining!! I think just your bonus alone on ball one beats out anything I ever scored on a five ball game. Not to mention you got multiball like what, four times? I lost count......, very nice!!

Thanks haha, yes it was a good game. It took a few tries. On the first ball I had spelled spirit and was trying to get into multiball to collect the special with 3x score. Which would be 300k. And there we're so many accidental "almost" droptarget hits before getting multiball. In the end I couldn't get it done

The spinning disc motor seems like it’s very quiet. Does it make any noise at all?

Not sure about his but I just replaced my motor with a NOS one from PBR, yes it was still in the newspaper wrapper from 1980. Anyways, it's pretty dang quite, not entirely but certainly way better then the Volcano motor that was super noisy and spun 100mph that someone had stuck in it's place.

Great that you noticed. The new motor is very quiet. The original motor works fine but just makes so much noise. I replaced it with a geared dc motor and put a regulator and stepdown converter on a small PCB. This way you can even adjust the speed a bit. I made a bracket so it can be attached to the original mount that is attached with the rubbers around the screwholes. That way it isolates the vibrations. And if you want you can still easily make it original again.

Ofcourse I first tried to make the original motor more quiet. I took it all apart, cleaned it and lubed it with the right kind of grease but it still made so much noise. I think it's just wear that happens after a few years that causes the gears to have a little play in it.

#19 6 months ago

Three days and this is still available...…..damn! Three hours would be about right here state side, they just aren't seen or offered up much here.

My Spirit motor does sound like a tank

#21 6 months ago

Is there anything louder than a Gottlieb roto target unit like on my Circus?

#22 6 months ago

You say the cabinet is restored. Details?

#23 6 months ago

I had one. A real nice one ... hunted to find one for a long time, paid a mint for it, but needed to part with it to buy a new house. Joe "PinballStar" has it now. Glad it's in such a nice guy's collection. One of the most strikingly beautiful pins out there.

#24 6 months ago

I almost had one yrs ago when a collector named Bob passed away in CA. His brother sold his collection of pins that had 2 spirits. One was mint the other in players condition. Even though I was 1st to respond and explained that I only wanted one of the 2 spirits out of the 10 or 12 pins someone with a wad of cash bought the whole collection with the condition that both spirits be included. Still hurts to think about it.

#25 6 months ago

It's reserved

#26 6 months ago

Well damn.

Quoted from 27dnast:

Well, I don't believe it's blue on the inside originally. And the sides have no damage and great color. So I imagined it was repainted from the ground up. I don't have much details from the former owner (who had done this, of the one before him). I had it picked up with a truck from Belgium without much information other than pictures. Felt like I had to jump on it back then

#28 6 months ago

In my book this pin and Stern’s Viper are the two most strikingly beautiful pins ever made. Both have captivating art without being too busy. Wish I had one of them.. or both!
