I’m an avid researcher of gamatron, I poured my life into a restore, also bought a restored one from TNT amusements for 2k just to trade off for another game, then bought a rats nest gamatron for a buddy to have to restore

What you have there In all seriousness:
Cabinet with coin door needing lots of work
Playfield needing restore... (no replacement flipper mech available anywhere , no replacement plastics available anywhere in case some are broken, they are easily broken when working on this game, no replacement parts for the drop target mech under the playfield in case of issues that can’t be rectified)$700

Pinball head needing lots of work (with no internals)with pinstar Psm board $-50

Better to buy all new boards than to restore and fix that badly thought out psm board

$750 is what you should list this for in all seriousness

The effort to make this game work will take many hours and experience and even still frustration.

There’s no schematics for this machine by the way, the ones that are available are unreadable.

The original Backglass is actually plexi glass and will never be found

It’s not valuable because it’s rare, it’s not-valuable because the value is in the insane amount of trouble it takes to get it playable and restored by even the best of pin techs

This is so stupid...Literally every listing I’ve seen lately is so far out in left field that you can’t do anything but laugh about it. Older pins being listed for more then nib. Non working, mouse poop filled boxes for 9k??? Seriously? The state of this hobby is embarrassing to say the least. I’m so thankful I was able to build a decent collection before all of this BS started. I’m sure things will normalize at some point, but WTF?

Looks like another Gamatron hit marketplace. Op you might want to adjust your price

I've seen this extremely rare Ford GT for sell, but it will likely not go for the usual 300,000$ a GT goes for....

Send to HEP for a restoration. I would like to see this with a chrome coin door and legs.
