Had an electrician I've worked with on job sites for the past few years. Pinball came up and he mentioned a machine thats in his garage thats been there for years. Couldn't remeber the name. It was burried. Of course that started my brain trying to figure out what it was. I kept asking him things about it. Eventually he just said why don't you come by and check it out sometime.
I was about to leave for vacation for 2 weeks so I went by to check it out. All I could se was the name and that it was burried deep in the garage. Asked him what he wanted for it. Said I could have it just so he could have the room back. I wanted to take it then but it was too burried. I didn't want to lose out on it while I was on vacation. He told me he would clean out a path to it and to give him a call when I got back.
Just drove there tonight and picked it up. 1976 Playmatic Conquest 200. Game had mongrel bolts for the legs and back box but overall this is going to be a great looking game when I'm done. The cabinet has a few minor dings. The front someone wrote with sharpie press here
Backglass has a few minor scratches. No flaking at all.
Playfield is filthy but not wear at all. No insert cupping, no worn keylines. Nothing. Just chunks of caked on dirt. Cleaned just a tiny area to see. SHINY! I think playmatic used some sort of plastic coating on there playfields. Let me say it holds up remarkably. Even the whites on this game are still white.
Inside of cab and underplayfield almost look factory fresh. A light coat of dust on the bottom of the cab. Every score motor and switch stack look beautiful. Even the white plastic holders for all the switch stacks are clean and fresh white.
Adjust a few switches when I got it set up and everything works! Very fun game. Great use of spinners. Round drop targets, rollovers, very active pop bumpers. Some very cool shots.
Here are some pictures.
These held the game together. I already had some new leg bolts here.
