Item description

Clean classic shuffle alley project arcade game that has been in climate controlled storage for a few years. 6 players, 3 game modes.

The backglass paint is fully intact, though there is a small darkened spot from heat damage.

Minimal wear on the lane, and the paint is still vibrant.

There are a few dings, scratches, and minor wear in the varnish of the hardwood rails consistent with normal wear & tear.

The cabinet paint is in good shape, and is not faded.

On the cabinet, below the opening for the lane, there is a patch of discoloration/paint on the veneer of the wood, but this isn't visible when the game is assembled. The wood itself is still sound.

No cracks or breaks in the hood over the pin assembly.

The coin door is original, and has been wired up with a free play button.

The plastic pins are in good shape, but yellowed, and have some worn areas at the tops of them where they make contact with the mechanisms.

New leg levers and t-nuts were installed.

Includes two used spare player/frame reels and mechs (easily worth $100!).

The original schematics & paperwork are included.

I also have a spare set of 10 pins in good condition (with the correct logo for this game, which are hard to find); asking $100 for this set of pins.

Currently disassembled into the game's major components for storage (cabinet, lane, legs, and pin assembly). No stairs, easy pick-up, and I can assist with loading. This can fit in a 5x8 enclosed uhaul trailer, but the lane will need to be propped up at an angle since it's a snug fit.

The cabinet is 73" tall (74" with the leg levelers) x 14.5" deep x 30" wide

The lane is 98.5" long at the longest part. 29" wide. At the rear, there is a section that is 17.5" tall, including the lane. Near the front of the lane, it is 9" tall, including the lane.

Additional photos added. The first 4 photos were from before it was disassembled for storage.

#3 11 months ago

looks nice. Looks just like my bowler. Same paintjob scheme too. but must be newer as mine doesn't have flash. Or gutters.

#4 11 months ago

I didn't even notice that--yeah, it seems like gutters weren't a thing until the late 50s and throughout the 60s. Then it looks like they disappear or shrink in the 70s and beyond.

#5 11 months ago

mines a 1954 bowler. First gen. no flash, no gutters, and 3 1/2" balls.

#6 11 months ago

I've had 4 people say they wanted this. 2 people ghosted, 1 person was a no-show, and 1 person called to bail right before the time they were supposed to arrive.

Make me a fair offer, actually show up, and it's yours.

if you were closer I would have taken this. I have friends looking for a shuffle bowler that they can get downstairs

This really is a nice shuffle alley...6ft lane, visually appealing 50s style game, and with 3 game modes that many earlier games didn't have.

#11 9 months ago

If you were closer, this would be mine. All the good deals are far away.

Friday bump

Also, you can make it a dual purpose trip--come for the truck show happening here this weekend! Classic trucks, modern trucks, big rigs, emergency vehicles, construction vehicles, and more.

Ample free parking, room for a trailer if you're bringing one. $1 admission to get in. They also usually have a nice flea market with lots of tools for sale. I've picked up a few tools for working on pins there.

#14 9 months ago

Really? No takers at this bargain price?

I'd really hate to part out such a nice game that has survived over 60 years intact.

#15 9 months ago

This is such a steal. Get it here to VA and I will give you $400.

Quoted from 2manypins:

Unfortunately, I don't have a way to get it down there.

Anyone happen to be going down that way with a trailer?

#17 9 months ago

if only this was in australia. they never show up here.

#18 9 months ago

I am so tempted here. Imagine this bad boy restored? What a treasure!!!

When was the last time it was powered up do you think?

#19 9 months ago
Quoted from CaptainNeo:

1954. 3.5" balls. It has a ball lift? United? What's its title?

Quoted from sulli10:

I'm sure it'll have to be gone through, but the way the internals look, 10 to 1 those Steppers move freely.
Once the Steppers' Wiper Boards been clean and greased and the Score Reels been gone through, those
shuffles are reliable. It's complete including the Coin Mech. Make a reasonable offer. Hard to go wrong.

Probably a few years before I got it. The previous owner said he hadn't played it in a while.

#22 9 months ago

Weekend bump! You could be the proud owner of this shuffle alley today!

#23 9 months ago

Make an offer! This has to go!

#24 9 months ago

If you want to ship this to me on your dime I will happily take it.

I have always loved any type of bowling game and if this was close to me I would have made room. I can't believe it is still for sale for what you are asking.

Quoted from HFK:

Oh no--I've already lost my shirt on this game, sadly.

Quoted from HFK:

Yeah, me either. Shuffle alleys do pop up once in a while, but IMHO, they aren't usually as appealing as this one is.

#26 9 months ago

Apparently no one in NY appreciates shuffle alleys!? Weird. They are practically a game room staple for old school guys in Wisconsin. That is if you can't accommodate a ball bowler.

Seems to be a common problem in this hobby, unfortunately.

Bump--anyone in the mood for a shuffle alley?
