1937 Bally Arlington Payout Pinball Machine, One Ball, Extremely Rare Woodrail:
This is a 1937 Bally Arlington payout pinball machine restored to original condition or as close as possible. This is an extremely rare "one ball" that pays out nickels into a secret hidden drawer under the game. A true piece of pinball history.
The payout mechanism is the same as a Bally Rocket and has a considerable value on it's own. See picture of sticker. To have it working in the correct game and a rare game at that is an awesome opportunity for any collector.
The game is listed on the IPDB with no known ownership from members and the pictures listed are of this game. Not a game like or similar but this EXACT GAME. The previous owner who I purchased the game from posted the pictures. After a year of research and effort the only other one I can see in existence was a picture on Pininterest. I believe there to be only two known. Prove me wrong, I welcome the information.
It is working and the payout mechanism is also working and in great shape. The only modification made was a new Suzo Happ power supply replaced an 80 year old transformer with selenium rectifiers (it was not working and was not a safe power supply).
Backglass: original with some flaking on edges from light bulbs.
Glass: original not tempered.
Playfield: original and in fantastic condition, all original pins springs etc.
Cabinet: original and awesome, see for yourself.
Backbox: original with sides rebuilt and resprayed to match original cab.
Wood was refinished professionally and looks about as close to when the machine was back in it's hey day.
I would rather not ship but will package it on a skid if you arrange the shipper.
Serious offers only, the machine is available to see only if you are serious and show up $$ in hand.
There is a video on Facebook if you do a seach for "Bally Arlington Pinball". This is a rare opportunity for the serious collector.
