Item description

1957 Gottlieb "Whirl-Wind" for sale. This game is 100% complete mechanically, working and clean, and is a very fun to play Gottlieb 2-player title from this era.

The cabinet is structurally sound, and has been repainted beautifully to correct pattern and colors. Inside of the cabinet and backbox are both very clean with no rust.

The playfield is in very nice shape, has been cleaned and waxed. The inserts are all present and level. Playfield pop bumper caps are in nice shape and all original. The plastics are nice and are original, with only slight warping and slight discoloration on the two lower ones. The target faces on the roto target unit are all original and are in very nice shape.

The backglass is original, but unfortunately is in below-average shape, with several areas of flaking and paint loss. Reproductions should be available via B G Resto, if desired.

All wedgehead and multi-player games will come with a nice set of 31" metal legs of correct length, as appropriate.

New #1382 locks have been installed on the front and rear doors, along with new 2" and 3" leg levelers and a new power cord.

Please see pictures for complete details, and PM me with any questions, etc.

NOTE: This game comes from the collection of the non-profit Pacific Pinball Museum (PPM) located in Alameda, CA, and is one of our duplicates of certain titles that we are selling in order to reduce our warehouse storage needs and to raise funds for the PPM. In addition to certain EM titles from the 60's and 70's, we will also be listing for sale several Gottlieb woodrail titles from the late 1940's to early 1960's over the course of the next several weeks.
