Item description

Up for sale - a fully restored Old Chicago. Five drops, five pops and a TON O' FUN! Check out the spinner rip from the left to the upper saucer and pops - oh yeah! Knock down those drops for big points and extra ball potential. And don't forget to shoot that center saucer for a mid-ball bonus collect! Lower pop chaos and strategic outlane nudging make this one of Bally's most special layouts ever. Check out gameplay action of this lovingly restored machine on youtube:

I put countless hours into this.

* Near total repaint of the playfield, finished with two part automotive clearcoat for deep color saturation and a glassy, durable, lightening fast surface
* Cabinet stripped to wood and restenciled
* Reconditioned legs
* Repainted/clearcoated playfield apron
* Playfield rails painted and clearcoated to match playfield and apron
* Super nice original backglass
* Rebuilt flippers
* Rebuilt drop target mechanics
* Rebuilt pop bumpers
* Rebuilt chime unit
* All new plastics
* New playfield posts and rubbers
* Metal cleaned and polished
* Every switch stack cleaned and adjusted for awesome, snappy performance

Game scores extra points in the double bonus setting for balls 3 & 5. I'm more of an artist than a mechanic, so I never ironed this one thing out. I decided I was fine playing it with a little extra bonus on those two balls. Shipping is fine at buyers expense. Buyer to make all shipping arrangements. Cash on the glass or only please. Additional photos available upon request. Thank you!
