The playfield is a solid 8-9 very vibrant and minimal swirls and only a couple knicks in the paint with some wear around inserts and under the pops and one cracked insert on the 7000. It does have one scratched plastic, and the typical crack on the large plastic at the very thin bottom. The cabinet could use a good cleaning on the outside and some minor touchups. I just haven’t gotten to it yet. The back glass has a few minor spots that flaked, and the typical scratch around the latch under the gottlieb logo and the blue film flaked a bit on the display 1. I’d rank it an overall 7, but it’s so bright and nice it would be a 9 without the scratches.

CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND. FULL SIZE PINBALL MACHINE. Classic Gottlieb System 1 Solid State. System 1 solid state CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND Pinball machine in excellent working condition. This game was manufactured in 1978. Game features 5 drop targets, 2 pop bumpers, a roto-target, and a single spinner. I just completed a complete overhaul of this machine: game was fully shopped, playfield cleaned and polished, all new rubbers were installed, all burned out bulbs were replaced, all new LED lighting installed in the general illumination and insert lighting, and all plastics were cleaned and polished top to bottom. All playfield switches, solenoids, and assemblies are 100% fully working. Flippers were tested and are very very strong. The CPU was replaced with a Pascal Janin PI-1 MPU unit that I had sent in from France; I have enabled the skill shot and the attract mode lighting and it looks awesome! I also installed a new BostonPinballCompany System 1driver board and personally rebuilt the original power supply with ground mods and new electrolytic capacitors. The blue displays are all fully working with no bad segments. The electronic sound unit is fully working and functions as it should. Cabinet is in excellent solid original condition. The back glass is in excellent condition with no signs of flaking. The playfield is in very good condition with only slight wear around some inserts, for its age the playfield is in excellent condition and you would have trouble finding a nicer one. Some plastics have some cracking or may be broken (see pictures), new fender washers have been used to cover some the damage and prevent future breaks. Overall a Great Classic Machine and in perfect working order. The perfect addition for your shop, garage or man cave. I do my best to describe the condition of each item as accurately as possible. As with any classic arcade game of this era, there will be some minor bumps and bruises, this item is a former piece of commercial gaming equipment and is thus used and not in mint condition. Due to the nature of electronic items, I will not be responsible for this item once it leaves my possession. Item must be picked up within 25 days, unless alternate arrangements are made. If you have any questions, need additional photos or to preview and play the game. The item “CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND FULL SIZE PINBALL MACHINE WORKING 100%” is in sale since Tuesday, May 10, 2016. This item is in the category “Consumer Electronics\Vintage Electronics\Other Vintage Electronics”. The seller is “jackjett” and is located in Folsom, California.
