Item description

I recently picked up a 1961 Williams Space Ship project pin as part of a package deal. Not something I was after, and I’m not an EM guy, so looking to see if there’s any interest out there for this gem. It’s a low production (800 made) but rough pin, so hoping to find the right person that would love a good project. The biggest challenge will be restoring the playfield artwork. Could also be repurposed, rethemed or used for parts?

The Good:
- The plastics are all there and appear original and in good condition. (Some of the plastics are wavy).
- The plastic posts and other playfield pieces also appear all present and in decent shape.
- The game mostly works. Sometimes its hard to get the coin to give it the ok to start a game, and sometimes the game goes into this bell ringing spurt that eventually cures itself when you continue playing it. May be a ball count issue, stuck switch or issue with sensing how many balls have been played, not sure. I'm guessing a thorough cleaning/adjusting would cure a lot of this.
-The flippers, poppers and slings etc work.
- Reproduction backglass is available for this game.

The Bad:
- Cabinet, legs and coin door have been painted.
- The back glass is flaky with a fair bit of paint loss.
- The playfield is also has a fair bit of paint loss. Also, someone in the past added wood putty on the playfield near the ball launch kickout and also near the top of the playfield where the ball trail arches around on launch.
- The lockdown bar looks to be hacked up. Not sure how it is supposed to attach, all I know is that it has been altered.

I'm by no means qualified to fully described this game, so review the photos, and let me know if you have questions or want additional photos.
