Item description

I'm listing this with 95% certainty that I'm ready to let it go, as a lot has gone into this game and it has been special to me for some time. It is probably one of the nicest Addams Families out there. This is Addams Family Gold #981. It was produced on the last day they ran the Gold in 1994. It was an American distributed model that was bought by an operator new and then has been in my home collection for 6 years.

It has had less than 600 plays since I have owned it. When I got it in 2014, the following was done:

- New Plasma Dot Matrix Display installed
- Power Driver Board gone through completely
- Tore down fully to the bare playfield and shopped and LEDed
- New gold pop caps
- New gold bookcase
- Legs, bolts, lockdown, shooter, wireforms and side rails plated by Mike Chestnut (right before he passed)
- New White rubbers and star posts installed
- Cliffys installed
- New clear ramp installed
- New Thing Hand
- New up kicker assembly in the back that kicks out from Thing.
- All flippers rebuilt
- NOS translite installed to replace one with minor imperfection
- Scoop light mods added for the scoop (red) and swamp (green)
- New topper case and blue topper lighting added
- Purple super bands on all 4 flippers

Since then, the following things have been done and mods added:

- Various decals throughout including backboard decal
- Gold Balls added
- New Rottendog MPU added
- Fester mod added
- Knight mod added
- Train mod added
- Bear mod added
- Target decals added
- 3 magnet fuses added

The playfield is perfect, pretty much a 10/10. There are no broken plastics. All boards are clean, it plays 100%. Unfortunately, I do not have the original certificate. However, the plate is there and serials match. The side rails I did not put on from Mike as the originals were not bad and I was worried about damaging the cab, but I do have them and they will go with the game.

The cabinet is solid and overall nice, not perfect, but very nice. The worst part of the cabinet in my opinion is the coin door is a little scuffed, but I have an NOS Williams coin door I'll let go with it. I have a couple other TAF mods that will go with it too (phone, limo, etc.). There is one plastic that has a very minor abrasion on it, a new piece of that plastic is in the coin box. Gold manuals will be included.

Let me know if you have any questions or want more detailed photos of anything, I know it is a large investment. For any very serious collectors, Chris Hutchins is about 45 minutes from me. I'm always happy to drop a game at his place if he agrees to take it on for you. Hard to let this one go, but want to free up some funds, have some other things Iā€™d like to buy, and it is time for someone else to enjoy it.
