Pictures included show the condition, backglass has severe flaking, cabinet has been painted over with unknown paint, and parts of playfield have been repainted with what appears to be an acrylic paint but haven't tried to remove it. Previous owner said it worked but I haven't had a chance to put it back together to verify. I would to prefer to sell to someone that intends to restore it but I understand that it may not be practical.

Geez. Yes, you would have to put your heart & soul into that one. I'd love to find a flipper woodrail in my area for $100. Good luck!

I just sold one of these a month or so ago at the PATZ auction, basically in the same condition too. Painted cabinet, flaking backglass etc.. I got the exact same price out of it, $100. Someone got a deal.

Yes, restoring this would likely be a labor of love. I got it in a small bulk deal with some vids, I'd like to have a woodrail and this looks like it would be fun but I'm out of space and it would be years before I'm likely to have enough time to dedicate to doing it properly. Hopefully I can find someone to take it on.

Bump due to space becoming more critical, any offers welcome.
