Item description

I have decided to sell my once in a lifetime find, my NOS 1986 HIGH SPEED PINBALL MACHINE!... Yes, you read this correctly- this is a never used, never put on it's legs (other than factory), and never had a ball run through it (other than possibly factory testing), High Speed, and it even still has the factory protective film on the side rails!! ALL the paperwork was still inside the machine, and never opened, till I (carefully) opened it to take pics, and (carefully) put everything back in exactly the way I found it from Williams.

I bought this from the original owner, who never used it when he got it, because it was slightly damaged when the back box flipped up and off the machine, and broke the back glass, and nicked up the rear corners....Williams sent him another new machine, and he just kept this one in his DRY, HEATED office since day one... The machine was stood up on end (like designed to do), with the head sitting next to it, and was even on a pallet, so it never even touched his floor! The machine has NO OXIDATION of any kind, and the wiring (and pretty much everything) looks like the day it was made, and the red flasher on top is MINT (nicest I've ever seen)... (please look closely at the pics I have included)!!...Everything about this machine is a time capsule, and in AMAZING condition (except the mentioned small spots on the corners, as can be seen in the pics).

I have purchased an NOS back glass to complete this time capsule, and it will be included with the machine; I am hoping to see this go to a collector that wants the "Holy Grail" of the '80's pinball machines, and (hopefully) will keep it as a NEW piece, but no matter what you do with it, I think it is VERY safe to say this in the ONLY NOS HIGH SPEED left in existence.

I will NOT be turning this machine on for any reason, as it is only new once, and I don't want to hear anyone saying that as soon a ball gets run through it, it's a used machine; it's not going to happen while I own it (and yes, I know some of you will give me "flack" about it)....The machine is currently sitting on its' original legs (which I painted black), and I used leg protectors, so the cabinet would not get any marks on it (other than the factory marks).. I am including a brand new set of legs also with the sale, still in the box....All hardware is original, and in NEW condition.

The CPU board was removed at some point, to test a problem with his other High Speed machine, and then it was carefully wrapped, and set inside the cabinet for all these decades (no clue why he didn't take the extra few minutes to re-install??)...The board is AMAZING clean, as you can see in the pic, and unmolested in every way!

Please message me if you are seriously interested....I have a strong offer from a dealer (wanting to sell it for a profit, after he ships it across the country to get it), and another offer from a private person....I am looking to take the best offer I get with-in the next week (or less time/immediate sale, if someone offers something I can't refuse)...
Thanks for taking the time to read about my machine...Please let me know if you have any questions, or want any other pictures.
