Really a long story here but I currently have four Haunted House pinball machines and I am trying to figure out what I want to do here. We really only ever wanted one Haunted House machine but I ended up with four of them (more like 3 and a half).
Rather than getting into the details of how I ended up with 4 machines I'll just say for 3 years I was trying to get one decent Haunted House machine and it just worked out this way.
First machine all that I bought was the body originally - no head - no boards - no backglass. Then I managed to find a backbox & translite for it. Never did put a board set together or anything and I don't know exactly what might be missing.
Second machine I found was all apart when I bought it. Guy was going to do a playfield restoration and clear playfield then lost interest. So he had it apart but had not started on playfield yet.
Third machine I bought was complete but playfields are badly worn. I figured at least I would have a complete machine to look at when trying to assemble the other two. Or would have all the parts for the first machine.
The 3 machines above have been sitting over a year waiting for me to find time to make two good machines out of three.
Anyway - a few weeks ago I traded two other titles for a decent Haunted House. Now I need to figure out what to do with the other 3 machines.
What I am looking for here is some idea of price points of machines 3 or 4 different ways.
What is a fully working (condition 7.5 to 8 - nice backglass) Haunted House worth these days?
What is a Haunted House project with badly worn playfield worth?
What is a Haunted House project worth (again 7.5 to 8 - nice backglass) worth?
What would 2.5 Haunted Houses be worth to someone as a lot?
Machines are in Central PA. Not ready to sell right now but looking for some idea how to proceed with these. I will consider offers on any but the latest one but would really rather just take my time and go through these myself.
