Spent almost 2 weeks working to make contact with a local (non-pinhead) seller through FB Marketplace.
Was not a highly desireable game but thought I would give it a go at the right price.
Finally got a chance to see it live Thursday evening. It was not playable. Ball would not launch into shooter lane. Game could only be started with coin door open.
Upper left flipper did not move. Few segments were out on displays. Coin door lock missing, and key to backbox missing (drilled it). Mold everywhere on the outside as it was in a damp basement
The good: playfield was nice ... not perfect but nice. BG was perfect. Cabinet is very good ... and, once you got it started, it worked and a game could be played as long as you kept reaching under the playfield to eject the ball into the shooter lane.
I made and offer, we did some back and forth and I picked it up this morning. The gentleman that owned it bought it from an arcade in 1983 and has owned it since. Game counter show 22,000 plays or so
MOG is this thing heavy. You could bust a gut just taking out the playfield glass!
I spent about 1 1/2 hours working on it today and ...
I am never this lucky, but get this
1) The left flipper was a spade connector loose on the coil
2) The start ball eject issue was a 2 amp fuse
Needs all new rubbers but it now plays.
Artwork is crazy good.
