Game - for sale

For sale: Skyline - Restored - Gorgeous!!

Added: 2023-02-08 03:18:34 UTC • Ended: February 28th, 2023
Condition: Fully restored (full original status)

Price

$ 2,000

Had this sold a couple times but both buyers ghosted

Here is what I believe to be the nicest Gottlieb Skyline left. Those that follow my posts know I don’t throw around the word gorgeous but this game deserves it. This has been in my collection but it’s time for a new home.

The game was completely restored. Cabinet was repainted and cleared. The playfield was cleared as well and looks new. The game is immaculate inside and out.

There is a lot of new chrome on the game from the lock down receiver to various other parts.

The inner cabinet hardware I assume was replated in a goldish/ brass color.
Even the bell behind the Backglass was re-done. _ CORRECTION - IT may have been just cleaned up.

Everything works as it should including the Backglass elevator doors.

Please look at all the photos. This is Not your standard $1300 wedgehead. It is a beautiful piece.

I do know know who did the restore but it is top notch.

Included are various manuals.

68 pics and video in album. I pointed out the flaws in the video (very minor).

No fastnel. Trades considered.

Thanks!

Nightly Bump for a beautiful machine.

#3 1 year ago

How long am I going to be tortured by this machine?!? Will somebody buy this thing and get it off the market? Please? I am begging you… if this drops any further in price I am going to have no other choice but to buy it and that is going to make my wife divorce me. So please, for the sake of all that is holy, will some wedgeheaded junkie pick this up? And then send it to East Paso Fino Way, STV Az, 85143, care of Bublehead, I’ll slip a crisp Benji in your pay packet.

Very cool how the ball ejects on the right side ... unusual!
Pretty game ... GLWS
If you get bored doubles as a checker table.

holy moses! gorgeous is a very fair adjective in this case. stunning, really. i have <1yo Sterns that don't look this good.

Thanks everyone. It is truly a nice piece. I would love to keep it but it doesn’t get played and it’s time for someone else to enjoy it.

Bump for weekend

No coin chutes, and two left flippers?

Good catch !

“The inner cabinet hardware I assume was replated in a goldish/ brass color.

That plating is how it came from the factory. It cleans up beautifully in these old games.

Also, there shouldn’t be posts blocking the outlanes. That’s a real shame they are on there, as the rest of the playfield is so nice otherwise. They will dramatically effect gameplay, and not in a good way.

Quoted from BeachPickle:

I didn't see that. Sheesh, they gotta go!

#12 1 year ago

Thanks for the constructive criticism. I never noticed the upside-down flipper before. Well, thats an easy fix.

I dont want to remove the posts. Ill leave that to the next owner.

Price drop to $2000.

#13 1 year ago

Paint job looks very well done. I know how many hours go into cleaning/polishing to get a game in this state, at this price it's basically free labour. Good luck!

#14 1 year ago

Weekend bump. Lots of interest even with the upside down flipper.
