I just picked up a routed Monopoly. It needs all new plastics, ramps, maybe a playfield. I'd like to replace everything and do a full restoration. Let me know what you have, used in good condition or new. Thanks!
Got a few responses. Still not sure if I'm gonna fully restore with all new or go good condition used. Keep the parts coming!
I found a plastic set and left ramp. Right ramp is fairly cheap so no biggie there. Clear plastics are expensive though. Does anyone have just the top of playfield clear plastics? I really don't want to sped $35 or whatever plus shipping for 2 little pieces.
Restoring a Monopoly??? Not sure what You would spend in parts but it has to be more than $1000 when You include a NOS PF. I recently bought a HUO Monopoly that looks like it just slid out of the box for $2200. Not looking to sell it but I think I've seen a few posts for HUO games in this range as that is where I got price to make the offer. Why not sell yours for $1400 and spend the extra $$$ on a HUO game? And then You could take all the time You were gonna spend restoring it and use it to play pinball.
I sold my monopoly last year for $1350 I believe. It was fully working except the dmd. It was in good working routed condition. I miss it, it's a fun pin imo. Good luck with the search for parts, they are out there. It will feel good if you can put the game all back together with new stuff. If you can afford it though, finding a real nice one in the 2k range is your better bet as it isn't too hard yet
I can't believe people are trying to talk me out of turning a beater machine into something nice. That's a big part of the enjoyment for me. I've decided not to go with a new playfield but the left ramp is totally trashed and so were a lot of plastics. I was able to snag both pretty cheap on ebay. Now I'm looking for a right ramp and the clear plastics and hopefully that's it other than typical stuff like posts, all coil sleeves, all lamps and rubber.. I don't think I've ever seem a fully working shopped Monopoly sell for less than $1800 around here and this will be more than a typical shop.
If everyone was concerned only with money and HUO games we would have a lot less nice games out there. I've spent 30-40 hours restoring games that are only worth a few hundred bucks. Don't get me wrong, I like to make money when I flip too but it's not always my first concern.
