Item description

I'm gonna try this again. Got cold feet last time and decided not to sell, but now i have a couple games in my sights again so i gotta fill the pot back up (I'm sure I'll regret selling, but money is money sometimes)....

Selling my very nice Taxi Pinball. This is my second Taxi and as always I hate to let it go, but it’s time to move on. This one is in very nice original condition and everything works exactly how it should. It doesn’t have the blatant discoloring of the gray on the non-mylar areas of the playfield that this title always seems to have, and the black ball swirl mess in the same area is minimal compared to most. The PF is very nice, typical wear spots around the inside of the pop bumpers have been addressed with mylar rings. And it has the typical wear spots where the two habitrails drop onto the in lanes. The original ramps have a few hairline cracks, but nothing major that is getting any worse or effecting gamy play in any way.

In the past 6 months I’ve done a complete topside tear down shop job. New parts include all blue posts, rings, flipper bats, balls, flipper buttons, pop bumper caps/bodies and skirts. I re-sleeved the flippers, and performed the WPC flipper mod and it has newer PF glass too. Novus 2 cleaning followed by California gold paste carnauba wax afterwards.

No acid damage on factory MPU, no hum, original displays work perfect. The cabinet has a spot of wood that has flaked off just under the left side of the lock down bar (Not water damage). The rest of the cabinet is solid, very nice and fade free with minimal dings and bumps compared to others. The topper is very nice with no cracks. I’ve tastefully installed Comet Warm White non-ghosting LEDs throughout with color matched inserts. Leaving the original incandescent flashers (they just look better in my opinion).

Please look closely at the pictures and ask questions, If you need pictures of a specific area that isn’t already covered, or would like the high resolution versions of these feel free to let me know, no one likes surprises or playing games!

Although never the preferred method…. I’m am willing to ship as long as you set everything up and pay on your end. I can assist with how to do that and details. I've shipped many times, i just prefer to have the buyer be able to see it in person.

Email me at [email address removed] during the work day for faster response. Pinside is blocked at my work lol.
