Added: 2020-08-30 22:00:00 UTC • Re-listed: 1 time (June 24th, 2021) • Ended: July 21st, 2021
Condition: Partially restored (almost original)

Item description

In amazing condition. Tons of new parts including but not limited to new cabinet and art, new ramps, new spinner unit, new fan shroud, new legs, new lockdown bar and side rails, new CPR silver playfield installed, new coils, new display, many new switches, more. Combination of LED and incandescent bulbs. Plastics looks great and price includes a new uninstalled plastic protector kit, and new complete uninstalled plastic set. Works and plays great, except the right ramp up/down switch recently started having an issue where it clicks but doesn't engage. I haven't had the time or inclination to address it. No shipping, but may be able to offer reasonably-priced delivery within a certain range along the I-5 corridor and the Pacific Northwest. Game is in Eugene, Oregon. Certain trades possible for late B/W or newer Stern +/- cash (like TSPP). Great game in awesome shape for a great price.

Killer deal. Brian is a good guy.

I’m at the south end of I-5, is that too far?

Reverse price policing in effect! This is a steal for a beautiful machine!

Great looking pin. Would’ve loved one of these in my place back in my OSU days 50 miles north in Corvallis.

Simpsons Pinball Party is at the top of my wish list at this point.

I just added additional pictures, which include images of the cabinet interior.

How is this not sold? For what was done this is a crazy price, I guess we are seeing summer is a slow time to sell.

Compare this to the 14,000 WW also for sale on Pinside. Los Angeles is to far down the I5 pipeline, I suppose. Very tempting...

I've always priced my games at or below market, and over the years I've had some good people reciprocate, so it's all good. The price reflects what I have in the game ($4400), rather than seasonal price fluctuation. I took $200 off as a positive gesture for the ramp up/down issue, which should be easy to address. All the best!

The market for a restored WW (and seemingly everything else) has changed significantly in the last 9 months. This may be well below market this time around. Seems beat up WWs are fetching this price now .

I can’t believe this is still available.

#15 1 year ago

Same price as the beater whirlwind for sale now in Florida. This is at least 1k under priced.

#16 1 year ago

This is a beauty!

If this is not an example of selling in the summer is hard I don't know what is....whoever gets this machine is getting a great deal...the ramp issue I am sure is minor.
