For sale: Monte Carlo

Added: April 9th, 2020 Ended: April 13th, 2020
Condition: Fully shopped/refurbished

Item description

For sale is my Bally’s Monte Carlo I’ve been working on for a few months. I have cleaned all contacts on both the backbox and cabinet pallet and replaced the flipper contacts with new. Game works 100%.

I have replaced all light bulbs with LEDs to include nonghosting LEDs for the controlled lights. If you want the old incandescent light bulbs, I still have most that were in the game for free.

I have rebuilt the flippers with new coils and mechanics

Pop bumpers are all new with body, top cap, skirt, light receptacle, rod and ring, the coils were fine so I just replaced the coil sleeves.

I cleaned/polished the metal glass frame and replaced playfield glass with new. This game is one of the few that had the playfield glass as an assembly with the metal frame that was the entire top on the pinball. Thank you Marco specialties for having new glass for these classic pins.

The backglass is perfect and I didn’t want to risk damaging it so I just polished the lift bar with scotch bright instead of removing it with new.

I installed new dark gray metallic period specific legs, new levelers, and bolts thanks to pinball resource.

I replaced all posts with clear so the lights would shine through and added Titan rubbers for longevity.

I thought about repainting the cabinet, but after listening to friends, I decided to leave it original besides cleaning. The cabinet is in great condition since 1973 and tells a story of hours of play.

Thank you for looking at my add.

This a classic old school pin that I hope will find a home that will get lots of play for years to come.

Thank you for the compliments! The game has been fun getting back into working condition. Wouldn’t even turn on when I bought it. Still amazed on how perfect the backglass is for being a 1973 pinball!!

Glad they no longer put the playfield glass in frames. It took me several hours to disassemble, clean, polish, and install a new glass.

This game has been a traveler for sure. Former owner says she bought it over 25 years ago back in Chicago! Now it is living in Winston Salem North Carolina!

It looks great, much nicer than mine. I agree this is a good price for this machine. I think its a fun machine to play with a number of different nice EM features, and it is not easy at all to get high scores on it (which I consider a good thing, I hate it when I can easily roll over after I have played it a lot). Besides being fun to play, it is absolutely beautiful to look at. Mine also has a near-perfect backglass, and that classic Dave Christensen artwork just never gets old.

Whoever buys it can learn all about how it works here if interested!

Man can't believe how cheap this is. Excellent bargain and fun pin.

Well this pin is already listed as pending. Hopefully the person picking it up soon will enjoy this pin for a long time to come. Price I think is fair for these crazy times and as long as pinball players keep flipping these classic tables, I’m happy.

This is a hobby I just love to do and keep learning something new with every pin I work on thanks to so many great people on this pinball forum.
