Item description

For Sale: A nice example of one of the most aesthetically-pleasing Bally system 11's out there - Elvira & The Party Monsters! A full tear-down and shop job was just completed - the game looks great, and plays 100%.

The work completed is as follows:

- Power supply board replaced with an all-new Pinscore PJ-12246 board;

- Faulty original displays (partially gassed-off) were replaced with new Rottendog DIS011 LED displays;

- Faulty U19 Sound Board EPROM replaced with new;

- CPU mounted battery holder removed, remote holder w/fresh batteries installed, all CPU connector pins inspected and re-flowed as needed (no apparent or historic corrosion-damage);

- Drop target under playfield mechanism completely disassembled, cleaned & adjusted;

- Complete top-side teardown - all star-posts soaked/hand-scrubbed;

- All playfield & backbox GI lighting, and a few key feature lights, replaced with Comet LED's (most feature lights/flashers still incandescent)

- Playfield/plastics/ramps extensively cleaned, polished, and waxed;

- The "Monster Slide", "Blob", & "JAM Lights Lock" plastics were replaced w/new reproductions;

- New coin-door lock installed;

- All new black rubbers installed;

- All new pinballs installed;

- New custom instruction/price cards installed.

Please review the pictures for additional condition details and don't hesitate to reach out with any questions, or if you would like to see supplementary photos with any specific detail. The original playfield appears to have had day-one mylar installed, and shows very well; however, the original mylar cut didn't quite reach as far as it should have, and there is evidence of historic wear, and some tasteful touch-ups, on the unprotected areas that saw high traffic.

The game is located in Central Pennsylvania, just off I-80. Pickup is highly preferred, but shipping is not out of the question if the buyer makes all arraignments, and payment-in-full has cleared my account before the game leaves my possession. I can also recommend a very reasonable amusements shipper I use, and have had very-good luck with, who can usually move pins to most any-door east of the Mississippi for ~$275. Unfortunately, this shipper is temporarily shut down due to the health pandemic, but does anticipate getting back on the road soon.

IN REGARD TO THE CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC: This pin is currently located in my clean, dry, and climate controlled warehouse. If a meaningful deposit is received, you're more than welcome to leave it there until such a time when you are comfortable picking it up. In that scenario, I do reserve the right to at least one or two games a week though! If you would like to get it into your lineup ASAP, I am open to a pickup anytime, and we can easily abide by all of the recommended practices for interaction. You can drive right into the building and almost right up to your new machine. I have all the lifts/dolly's/carts needed to make loading it a breeze. I will leave it as you're call, and I will respect and accommodate what ever you decide.
