Default 1970 Gottlieb Aquarius Pinball Machine (Streamwood) $500

You are looking at a 1970 Gottlieb pinball machine in working order. It has an astrology theme and was designed by Ed Krynski. The backglass is excellent, I cannot see any flaws in it. The paint finish on the sides and front is showing some age with paint splits occuring. Someone had touched up the white paint on the sides and it is noticable, but not terrible. There is a small rust area on the metal upper trim of the playfield as shown in the one close up. Other than that the playfield is clean and in working condition. It has had a complete rubber replacement a few years ago.





It has no coin trigger units in it, and the credit counter in the head has been set to play continuous free games. It is missing the triple chime unit, but has a single round bell installed. The internal electronics look clean with no water damage or corrosion. The glass over the playfield has a broken corner, near the plunger, as shown in the close up.





The game has various targets, 5 kick out holes and 3 pop bumpers. All work perfectly. The flippers work and hold properly with no overheating. It has a set of keys and it includes the back panel. The tilt sensor is working (almost too well!) and The only thing I can see missing is the chime unit. The machine is clean and has no bad odors or smoke residue from bar use. The power cord was replaced as the original was downright dangerous.





As with any pinball game, the head comes off for transport as do the legs. Pinball machine must be picked up evenings or weekends, as I'm not home during the day during the week. Please phone during the evening or weekends at (630) 772 1958

Would make a great Holiday gift for someone's rec room!
