Item description

Very nice undocumented HUO Paragon for sale. It was purchased from an elderly lady who originally bought it new for her kids back in the late 70s. Still has the original operators card along with manuals and envelope. Inside is clean as a whistle. The deets...

THE GOOD:
-Cabinet is gorgeous! The reds are actually RED, unlike most Paragons out there that are either pink or even faded completely to the yellow underneath
-Backglass is flawless with deep colors
-Playfield is very nice. Only minor wear (detailed in THE BAD below), inserts are decently flat, unlike most Paragons, and overall in very nice shape
-Underside and bottom of cab is completely clean
-Recently shopped and waxed, new rubbers and some posts, plays extremely brutal and fast!
-Legs are like new
-Game plays fast and furious!
-Displays all work and are bright
-I got rid of the battery holder and installed a lithium battery. Zero acid damage on the boards.

THE BAD:
-Unfortunately, HUO does not mean flawless. The pf does have some wear around some of the inserts. Clearly, they sank at some point and the game wasn't shopped, which caused some of the wear. A few of the circles around the inserts have been touched up and look nice.
-Though the game plays just fine, all the original caps are in place. At some point, I would change those out as they're like 40 years old by now.
-A few nicks and scratches on the cab but nothing major or easily seen unless you're right up on it. No touch-ups on the cab.
-The bottom pop bumpers intermittently works. Probably something simple like a loose wire or cold solder somewhere, but just being thorough here.

MMAO or offer me a trade. Games I'm interested in would be: Whirlwind, Space Shuttle, Quicksilver, Firepower, Defender, Mousin' Around, TSPP, and maybe Genesis
