OP: I bought this as a project earlier in the year and spent quite a bit of time cleaning, repairing, and getting it up and running. Comes with an extra playfield. If you need more details or photos, please let me know.
Me: Playfield looks really nice, but the real bonus is that it comes with extra populated playfields that look nice also. Prior to the CPR announcement last week scalpers were trying to sell repro Black Knight playfields for $1500.

#9893 1 year ago

Manufacturer: D. Gottlieb & Co.
Game/Type: Solar City / EM 2 Players
Year: February 1977
Cost: $800
Location: Polk City, IA
Link/Contact: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/1977-gottlieb-solar-city-pinball-machine or desmoines.craigslist.org link

OP: Absolutely beautiful Solar City pinball machine. It flows silky smooth as the playfield has been clear coated with automotive clear coat using a gravity flow air gun. As a result, the playfield has a tough finish and the graphics are in amazing condition. The back glass is brand new and flawless. The cabinet is in very good shape -- the paint only has minor marks here and there. New rubbers and waxed well. Schematics and manual are included.

Everything works as it should except it currently starts every game in 2 player. We could have adjusted this, but we always play multiplayer so we never felt the need to address it. We will not be entertaining unreasonable offers as we really enjoy this game and are tempted to keep in our collection. We are only selling to save some space. Asking $800 cash.

Me: Looks like there are a few Midwesterners with this on the wish-list. Paging BEATNIK-FILMSTAR, @DECIMAL, MATADORMAN, EVILSQUATCH, N0POT, and POKERJAKE.

#10045 1 year ago
Quoted from PinballAir:

So they could not afford masking tape.
Perhaps taking just a moment to cut in coin door.........

Painted by the shooter rod as well. I'd be surprised if they took the legs off (Wait, the legs come off!)

I love the coin slot for S.B.A Dollar.

OP: Vintage pinball machine converted to coffee table. Perfect for man cave,garage, game room. Doesn’t play but lights up

#13058 31 days ago
Quoted from ForceFlow:

Looks salvageable if you can find a head. It looks like they just cut down the legs and removed the neck, and pretty much left everything else. I wonder if the wiring is intact. It might be if the GI lights up.
[edit]: found one: https://pinside.com/pinball/market/classifieds/ad/82019

I got this back from the seller.

Hi , so I’m not really sure how we would check inside it. All I know is judging by how heavy it is , there must be something!

#13068 31 days ago
Quoted from newovad:
