Heavily routed Congo for sale in KC. Cosmetically it's pretty rough. Cabinet is faded and drilled (speed holes for better acceleration!). Playfield has wear at the mystery scoop, a touch of wear at the window, and wear at the lost mine insert. Translite is scratched.

I bought this from an operator and fixed it up a bit. Pinsider stangbat went over the PDB, including new GI pins. I put in a new Pinball Inc jump ramp because the old one was missing (likely the cause of the lost mine insert). Backbox lights are now LEDs, as are a few of the playfield GI and inserts. Plays fast. Would be a good candidate to put back on location.

$2400 OBO. Would trade + cash for an '04-'08 Acura TL.

Too bad you're such a drive, I might be able to make the car deal work.

And you could have hand-delivered those dimming backbox panels I just bought from you

That's true! Have you installed them yet?

#5 6 years ago

I have a large amount of BBQ sauce I could trade.

Not yet - I'm bad about buying mods, then not installing them for a long time. Maybe I'll get to it this weekend.

Right side of cabinet has flipper button wear and speed holes. Left side is pretty clean. Front is also drilled as you can see:

Speed holes make things go faster:

I can add more speed holes if the buyer so desires, which will make moving this thing a cinch.

So if it sold in 10 minutes, wouldn't you agree that was a below market price? Not sure why you would post that example on my FS thread.

That is the world's largest sushi roll in the making. It also doubles as a CF glory hole.

Gotta admire wanting to trade for an 04-08TL.

It's a great car. Lots of features, reasonably priced, good acceleration, great handling, and good looks. They made a lot of them, too, so fingers crossed that someone will want to trade me.

My wife drives an 07 Type-S and I'm on the prowl for a Congo. It's like guaranteed divorce but I do love a players condition project...
