Unfortunately somebody did the 5-reels mod to that machine & glass

#15312 3 years ago

I would go get that Playball for 350 or B.O in a heartbeat if I was near Boston

#15313 3 years ago

Operators did this as apparently it looked more appealing.

Original:

CL ad:

operators did this to make older games look like newer games with the 5 digit scoring to try and squeeze out a little more profit before pulling games off route. It really did not happen that often. I was told by an old operator that it was to much work for to little profit

#15317 3 years ago
Quoted from Otaku:

The very first dummy zeros came out in August, 1969 by Bally
Maybe they added in later production?

Somebody should ask for a picture of playfield to see if the numbers are different....

Can't go wrong with that one!

I've seen a few of these weird conversions. There was a Gottlieb "Now" on ebay years ago with an extra digit.

#15321 3 years ago
Quoted from Shiny_balls:

There are dummy zeros on all the 1953 Williams games that had score reels. The first of which was Army Navy.

Here's a "Surfers"... looks cool... is this really "Super rare" and "priced to sell" at $1200? Hhhm...

sfbay.craigslist.org link

Not "super rare" with production count at 908... more rare/uncommon. I like 60's Bally's but the layout is kind of empty without much to shoot for (IMHO). $1200 seems high unless backglass, cab, and playfield are reasonably nice & game is working. Too hard to tell from the photos provided.

#15324 3 years ago
Quoted from o-din:

Yeah, and lots of 'em! I have "Dealer" and "Lazy Q" that have all those dummy zeros. Really strange that they used score reels so early on, then made a metal rail game with light up scoring in late 1961; "Space Ship".

#15325 3 years ago

Oops, my bad.
Must be first for Bally to use a plastic dummy reel.

#15326 3 years ago

Well, when you've got one right in front of you it does seem a little obvious.

Nice looking backglass eh?

I think she has her sunglasses on wrong.

#15328 3 years ago
Quoted from heatwave:

This thing is amazing....
- Large motor runs counter-rotating shafts at either end of the field.
- Individual player control 'stick' pushes or pulls a rubber road wheel against one of the shafts which spins the pulley system that each player's attached to

- 2-Piece player 'sled' results in player twisting (kicking) around a center axis when control stick is pushed down.

Play is kind of frenetic but you can make some really nice goal kicks and good goalie play can really help you out. Game is adjustable from 2.5 to 5 minutes long.

Just picked one of these up fun game and it is a really cool piece of engineering.

#15330 3 years ago

This is kind of funny! Guy has this Flying Carpet, not gone thru for $2600.00. I asked them where they got that price and this was the responds:
"All of the listings that I have seen are going for $3,000 or up and the only thing that is wrong with the machine is that it needs a new fuse. The new fuse is a very cheap fix (probably a dollar or so fix) , but I took $400 off anyways."

Here's the listing: desmoines.craigslist.org link

It's always just a fuse! Pretty sure those are original rubbers on there too!

Quoted from HighVoltage:

I want it but don't have pinball funds at the moment.

#15332 3 years ago
Quoted from jodini:

(probably a dollar or so fix)

the universal non-repairers repair idea, probably just a fuse! Well, buy one and add that $400 back on the price! Oh, you mean the fuse DIDN'T magically clean and adjust everything in the game? Huh, weird.

#15333 3 years ago

My buddy told me I should sell them a $400.00 fuse!

UPDATE: They just told me that it comes with extra rubbers and lightbulbs! Sweet!

#15334 3 years ago

This guy's looking for an analog pinball machine. I wonder if that means us?

Good one!

Made me laugh.

orangecounty.craigslist.org link

most would consider Analog to be the opposite of Digital. So, guessing he means EM! Which is going to be quite a hunk of junk if he is only willing to go $200. Perhaps a Rough Darling, or Jubilee. Or Maybe Bally El Toro!

#15337 3 years ago
Quoted from CactusJack:

Maybe Bally El Toro!

#15338 3 years ago

I think it's funny when people say it's a easy fix .If it's so easy then why don't they fix it. In reality they have know idea how to fix it or what's really wrong with it

#15340 3 years ago

Just backed out of a deal. Asked for address and confirmation , no text back for 3+ days? Ad is still up, Good Luck selling a pinball
Machine by leaving buyers in EM Limbo.

#15341 3 years ago
Quoted from 1974DeltaQueen:

no text back for 3+ days?

Had that happen, but 3 weeks wait...then a text out of the blue and I picked up a Fire Queen.

I WANT ONE!

#15343 3 years ago

Many times I have responded to an add and never get a answer. After the second try i quit and lots of times the machine stays on craigslist. I have only sold acouple of things but when it was sold i took the add down and I responded back to people letting them know it was sold. If you ask them to send you a pic because the one on craigslist is bad it's like you are asking whey to much

#15344 3 years ago

That's what the fireball2 said after he played it. "I'll be back for your Struggle Buggies" . But, I don't think so....

Ha, isn't that how you got it?

#15346 3 years ago
Quoted from AlexF:

Ha, isn't that how you got it?

No. I hadn't even played it yet by the time it got here. Sometimes I just trust my instincts. Plus I knew it would probably be the only one I ever saw. Kind of like the next one...

I'm guessing finding one of these would be slim to none? ....I dig the old school dirt track racing theme....one of my passions

#15348 3 years ago

Didn't know there was another -earlier- 8 Ball...

Not sure how this is a package, maybe the Wurlitzer is included?

Quoted from HighVoltage:

Non-stop arcade action! $400
Toledo
tucson.craigslist.org link

"Non-stop"

So slow you could probably get a drink and come back without losing your ball

"Own it and chicks will dig you."

"Hey baby, wanna take it back to my place and check out my 1975 Williams Toledo pinball machine?"
