Item description

Up for sale is a Bally Paragon from 1979. It has been completely rebuilt and plays 100%

The Good:
Cabinet has been repainted
All 4 flipper mechanisms have been rebuilt, including new bats
All pop bumpers rebuilt, including new bodies, and caps
All drop targets rebuilt, include new targets
All slings & kickouts have been rebuilt
New rubbers all around
Playfield has been stripped, cleaned, and waxed
All displays work
Newer rectifier board
NVRAM installed, so no battery replacement needed

The bad:
Playfield has wear, as shown in pictures, but is better than many Paragons. This is the better of the 2 pf’s that I had, so this one was installed.
Backglass is flaking, as shown in pictures. These are being reproduced by CPR if you want a new one.
PF glass has some scratches, as expected for a 40 year old game that has been in arcades.

This game is in my basement, and will have to be taken apart to move (but I do this regularly, so I will help).
Asking $1800, or trade +/- for another pinball machine.
