Item description

Up for sale is a 1972 Gottlieb "Wild Life". This is the less produced two-player version of Gottlieb's 1972 "Jungle". 

Located just outside Philadelphia on the ground level through a garage with no steps.

I picked up the two-player Wild Life over 2 years ago and since then have put a lot of work into it but now have too many other projects to work on this EM.

Upgrades and condition:
Stripped down the playfield to clean and wax it and is in great shape for the age. Has a wear line at the top of the playfield in the plunge path (see photos).
Rebuilt the flippers.
Replaced all of the playfield lights with #47 bulbs to cut down on heat and power.
Replaced all of the fuses.
Replaced all of the rubbers.
Rebuilt the shooter rod.
New pinballs.
All brand new leg levelers.
And have super lubed all of the usual places and contact burnished too many relay and switch points to count.
All of the plastics are original and in decent shape except for a small crack on the upper left and upper right plastics by the bottom bolts and some slight wear on the right sling plastic.
The cabinet has it's normal scraps and wear for a machine of this age (see photos).
The backglass is a little faded and has a few spots where the color is cracking from the prior bulbs but is overall decent.

The game often gets stuck on ball 1 player 1. I've narrowed it down to the bonus wheel but have not had the time to address the issue. Everything on the machine plays great but when it goes to count the bonus at the end of the ball before going to the next player half of the time it stays on player 1. It's most likely a contact switch that needs adjustment on the bonus wheel.

This is a very good players table with a very nice playfield and a lot of fun to play if you've never seen it before. The spinner shot into the pops, called the "action ring", is awesome!

Price is firm. Local pickup only please. I will not ship. No trades. Cash on the glass is preferred but Venmo or Paypal works as well. Feel free to message me with any questions. These do not come up for sale often!
