for sale

For sale: Whirlwind

Added: December 29th, 2018 Ended: December 31st, 2018
Condition: Partially restored (almost original)

Item description

Up for sale is a whirlwind pinball machine. Feel the power of the wind.

This machine is a great restoration candidate! It is partially done

The good:

Brand new that I installed
1) fan / hood
2) plastic set
3) all new pinball inc ramps
4) new bumper caps, superbands, posts and other small stuff
5) LEDs (not flashers)
6) flippers recently rebuilt
7) New orange led display

New stuff with it
1) CPR gold playfield
2) inner art blades

Everything works as it should

Great player!

The not so good:

The lower playfield Mylar was at some point taken off poorly. This should get decals or the cpr gold playfield that comes with it.

The cabinet could use decals but it is not horrible by any means.

Free local pickup.

Game is located in Bethlehem PA. You are welcome to come and see and play it in person

Added photos of the underside of the pf and clean board set as requested.
All boards are original and matching serial numbers.

Great seller! I'm sure he is losing money on this..

#5 6 months ago

GLWTS - I wish I were in a position to buy this

Maybe ask for more and have some wiggle room.

Originally I thought the same thing when I saw $3500 for a Whirlwind but when you factor in all the new parts - he is actually selling the "base machine" for under $2000. New ramps, new playfield, new topper, new plastics, etc add up quickly.

Yes you would need to do a playfield swap if you want a super nice machine but if you didn't care about the playfield you could sell that and have a WW with lots of new parts on it for under $2750.

#9 6 months ago

Yeah good deal for someone when you add up all the new parts, just changing the playfield out would be enough for me though.

#10 6 months ago

Its hard to sell/trade a game with new parts not installed. I have a nice players Whirlwind I have wanted to trade with all of the expensive parts not installed and all I get is people trying to pay WAY less than I have into it or just wanting the machine itself. I hope this seller can get value out of this sale I have about the same into mine with all the parts.

#11 6 months ago

I am already below cost. Only thing not installed is the pf and the inner art blades. Someone could just sell the pf and do a couple of decals and be incredibly happy imo. When I did the other stuff, the pf was on order.
Plastics, protectors, flipper rebuilds are all done. Basically everything I could get before the pf came out. I have someone coming to look later today so we will see

#12 6 months ago

Good luck to you as I think it’s a very fair price for I think a pretty nice machine considering most our beat up pretty bad.

Agree, someone can sell the playfield and inner decals. I think CPR is out of WW playfields and not sure when Mirco will have them ready.

no not really, just includes a 1k playfield with it.

#14 6 months ago

So maybe sell it for $2500 without the playfield may be the way to go.

I think if I owned it I would offer the playfield for sale separately first and if that sold then sell the machine for less money. There are people looking for playfields & there are people looking for good used working machines but rarely is the guy looking to do a playfield swap looking to buy a machine & a playfield at the same time.

What I wouldn't do is sell the machine then try to sell the playfield because who knows how long it might take to find a buyer for the playfield
