Chicago Coin Top Hat 13' Ball Bowler

Item description

Selling as I seem to never get time to work on anymore. Game is considered to be a project even though it does work!

Chicago Coin Top Hat Ball Bowler This game I have working with the exception of 2 pins not working properly. I took out the pin assembly board, cleaned all parts and put it back together but that's where I stopped. Again the game is working but the game has no coin mechs. Game was routed and the operator had removed all the mechs and installed a bill validator, which they took out. You have to manually put credits on the game. The front of the alley is beat up. Basically this machine needs a lot of cosmetic work and a little tech work, to fix the two pins! Some can buy this to fully restore or leave it as is and fix the issue with the two pins! Also to note is an indentation in the lane that appears someone through the ball real hard and caused indentation/crack in the Formica. I have some NOS parts that will be included. (Note: The second picture of the entire game is an older picture. The lane I have cleaned off all the dirt you see on the lane.)

I want to be clear on this, the machine is a project machine.
