For sale is this excellent playing Williams Whirlwind pinball machine in very nice condition. The playfield condition should meet the needs of collectors looking for nicer condition machines. The playfield is in above expected condition for the age. The factory mylar is still present. The paint on the playfield throughout is in great shape with no major damage or wear spots that stand out. The plastics are in excellent shape throughout. The machine was shopped about a year ago (new rubbers, LEDs installed, Cliffys/protectors installed, playfield cleaned/waxed, etc.). All of the flippers are strong. The game plays very fast and strong. The display is good. The fan topper works properly. The cabinet itself is in presentable condition with some typical wear for the age such as spots of touch up, a few minor bumps and bruises, etc. The translite is excellent. All of the boards look great and non-hacked. This is a great condition machine and of course is a very fun machine…. definitely one of the better ones for the era. A big upgrade kit looks like it will be available soon for Whirlwind just like what happened with Funhouse (search: Whirlwind 2.0).

I somehow ended up with four extra machines that are beyond my house’s capacity so I am selling a few machines (Whirlwind, Earthshaker, one of my two Fish Tales, Big Guns). I really prefer to sell outright but could consider trades up or down +/- cash (I tend to like late 1980’s through 1990’s Bally/Williams stuff). Could consider trades for vintage British/Italian or sports motorcycles (Triumph, BSA, Norton, Ducati, MV Agusta, Buell). I have an enclosed trailer and stair climbing dolly thus could deliver for a fee and install. I do not mind working with a shipper if you need it shipped. Cash, PayPal, Venmo, etc. works. Machines are located on my first floor in Sussex, WI 53089.
