For Trade: Gorgar - better than new! *update*
Featured Ad

Added: January 1st, 2018 Ended: January 9th, 2018
Condition: Partially restored (almost original)

Item description

*UPDATE*
OK - I had a trade local set up through Craig's List (I know should have expected this...) but it fell through. It was for a machine that I wanted etc. So, I thought all was good it would happen this weekend, it didn't. So, now I am relisting the machine again - preferring local trades first, locals sales second, then all else.

I have received inquiries on shipping for a sale requiring shipping and I will be contacting those who expressed interest to see if they still want it. So, I removed "sale pending" because to me it is not pending anymore until something is confirmed. If you emailed me - I will reach out shortly... (date of this post 1/7/18 6pm Pacific).

updated ad:

For Trade is my restored Gorgar - this machine is better than new, is it perfect was every screw or nut tumbled..no... but the machine had everything it needed and more done to it. Here is the list of what was done:

*Repaired and clear coated playfield
*Repaired, repainted cabinet, included head back board
*All new boards: MPU, Power Driver Board, and sound board (all new - not rebuilt).
*All new rottendog displays
*Flipper upgraded to flippertronic stuff
*New flipper leaf switches
*New power cord
*Drop targets upgraded to Siegecraft boards, new horseshoes contacts, etc. (better than new - more reliable)
*Bulletproofed the machine with new bridge rectifier fuses and a solenoid fuse block
*New legs, bolts, casters, etc.
*All LED’s throughout.
*Magnetic Gorgar Apron
*Titan silicon rubbers throughout
*New pop bumper skirts
*New speaker
*Polished almost every piece of metal, that mattered.
*No broken plastics, replaced all bad ones
*Cleaned throughout top to bottom

I would sell it to get a machine I want but would simply prefer to trade it for what I am looking for...

I am looking to trade for: High Speed or an Eight Ball Deluxe (even a limited edition), that is my two top ones.

But, I may be open to other trades such as a Taxi, F-14, Jack*Bot, or something else I have not thought of. Let me know...

I don’t think it has to be restored for restored, it could be good enough, or for some machine maybe money back and forth, etc. Again, open to trades let me know what you have.

I can sell it outright - asking around $2,000 or best offer.

Wow looks like a killer deal.

#4 1 year ago

Sweet game! Looking for a super Chexx bubble hockey? Or a Williams Flash and some cash?

#5 1 year ago

Very Nice!

#6 1 year ago

Some pins have "wizard modes." Gorgar's starts on your first plunge.

That's one handsome devil. GL. To you on the trade and to whoever plays it next.

Sorry - thanks for the offer - interesting offer but just the wife and I, the Chex hockey is great but kind of hard to play alone may sit unused. I kind of have my head wrapped around around some games and Flash is good but not on the list. I figure for some machines on trade I would even come up with some cash if you have something else to trade so I have options on my end, condition matters etc.

I am open to a straight up sale and I am negotiable on price "a little" if you are interested in a sale. I may post on CL if I have to...

Thanks for the interest -

Woah, that’s super nice!

Probably the best looking Gorgar I have seen in quite some time.

Thanks so much...it did turn out nice. Lots of interest in my trade so far. Many just too far away hoping for local trade first.

#11 1 year ago

Gorgeous. I’d look to work something out with you if you were closer.

#12 1 year ago

Very nice!

Who did the playfield work?

#13 1 year ago

The touch up was done by my mother in law - I guess you can say she is a semi professional artist, she did an amazing job on the touch up (she did the white areas on the playfield too). I did the clear - the two part clear is amazing stuff, outside of the toxic part of it, the stuff lays down like glass. Makes the playfield just pop. It will last forever versus the old playfields back in the day. Amazing how it shines - takes time but in the end reflecting (haha - pun - reflecting) on what I did it was not that hard.

I think someone may be nit-picky on one thing here or there, but I think it turned out great. This was not intended to be some super high end restore and I don't consider it that, it is not a business for me, my fix just got away from me and I kept doing more and more. I am sure you guys out there know how that goes...

It was a fun restore...

I kind of expect my trade would be a project too.

#14 1 year ago

Wow, this is an awesome example of a Gorgar. Very nice work!

#15 1 year ago

Drooooool.......man thats pretty!

#16 1 year ago

I want to say THANKS for all the praise laid on my Gorgar restore and the interest from my ad.

I have a local trade that should happen this weekend - if not it will be back up for sale/trade.

Gorgar is a great and gorgeous game with China of history that rarely gets restored for whatever reason. Seeing a restored one is a treat.

#18 1 year ago

My trade fell flat. I will be contacting people who want to buy it shortly.
