I didn't know an EK would be worth this much. Well, not this one anyway.
"Selling my Evel Knievel Pinball Machine.
$3,000 Cash NON NEGOTIABLE. FIRM ON PRICE.
I will contact you through email. I will not call or text you. Getting too many people collecting phone numbers for 888 companies.
Back Glass is pristine, the cabinet is in good shape, and the play field is decent...but played.
This is the arcade version, not the home version.
These are getting harder and harder to find, and the people who have them are not parting with them.
I'm not in a hurry to sell, and I don't have to sell this. But if you are interested in it, it's $3,000.
Was working great, needs some attention. Turns on and lights up, but needs a tune up to work right again. I had some work done on it moving the battery a few years ago. I think the repairs are small and not expensive.
You can check it out, you can look it over, you can find someone who will work on it, and I am selling this AS IS, for the price I've listed it at. $3,000
You might be able to find one cheaper if you keep looking, and hope someone wants to sell theirs. This is mine. And this is the price.
Sorry, not trying to be rude, but I am tired of Craigslist lowballers.
If you're interested...great, let me know and we can arrange a time to meet. If you think you're going to "negotiate a better price", based on scratches, condition...again...not trying to be rude...but this is the price I am asking, and will not sell for less. $3,000.
Dear Industry Pinball People...I am not trying to sell this to you. I know how much they are worth. I hope I do not sell this, and probably won't, but I'm putting it out there just in case the cousin of the guy who spent $20,000 on Ebay for the piece of toast that had a picture of Jesus burned into it...is also into Evel Knievel.
I know you're compelled to email me and tell me the industry standards of pinball resale. I believe you, and you're right. But if you feel better doing so...
