Up for sale is my 1976 Target Alpha EM pinball machine.
Since purchasing the machine in January 2020, I have done the following things:
+ new backglass from BGrestro.
+ purchased and replaced broken plastics.
+ purchased and replaced all bulbs to warm LEDs.
+ purchased new and replaced all four legs.
+ purchased and replaced leg bolts.
+ purchased and replaced leg levelers.
+ purchased and replaced the red, white and blue switch target faces.
+ purchased and replaced all of the rubber rings.
+ purchased and replaced ball.
+ repainted the entire outside cabinet and head.
+ roughly 26 - 30 hours went into cleaning up all of the metal on the coin door,
lock down bar and all other original metal pieces.
+ purchased and replaced all of the drop targets.
+ purchased and replaced all of the white playfield posts.
+ purchased and replaced all of the red roll over plastic guides.
+ purchased and replaced red coin entrance plates and labels.
+ purchased (but didn't install) new power cord.
+ purchased and replaced new instruction / apron cards.
+ purchased and installed plastic leg/cabinet protectors.
+ purchased and replaced Gottlieb logo on coin door.
+ had the entire machined professionally looked at and fine tuned by Clay Harrell
of VFW Pinball in Michigan and everything plays and works like it should.
+ comes with manual and schematics.
My plan was to fully restore this machine and bring it to our location for tournaments. However, with the current state of the world and tournaments on "hold"... I've decided to sell this machine instead.
Easy access out the front door of my home. I would prefer cash on the glass and local pickup - not interested in any trades at this time.
Asking for $1,800 or best offer.
Thanks for looking.
