Item description

1975 Gottlieb Gold Strike Rare Add-A-Ball Pinball Machine
This machine is a bit of a “time capsule” as it was purchased from a family that had owned it since 1980. Included is a letter written by the owner to Gottlieb requesting a manual. It still operates by the 25 cent coin mechanism.This is the cleanest machine I have seen. The back glass and play field are very bright and displays beautifully. This machine was produced in 1975, and has a very low production number of 675 units. It offers 15 drop targets and has 4 flippers. The work that I have done is as follows,
Play field stripped, cleaned and waxed.
Replaced all plastic posts and lane guides, polished all metal play field hardware, roll over switches removed and polished,  replaced rubber rings.
Rebuilt pop bumpers, rebuilt all four flippers with new switches.
Disassembled, cleaned, and polished ball count unit.
Rebuilt chime unit
Replaced all coil sleeves, polished coil plungers, replaced coils and coil stops as needed.
Installed 2 PBR orange dot coils for main flippers.
All lamp sockets were polished clean with wire wheel.
Score reels were disassembled, cleaned, polished and lubed. Switches cleaned and gapped as well.
Replaced dried out insulating foam tape behind the back glass.
Installed replacement coin door, coin bezel housing, new door strike panel.
Installed new legs, leg bolts, and levelers.
Installed new Gottlieb ball shooter.
Installed new power cord.
Many pics available for viewing.
