1965 Gottlieb Hi-Dolly (Game 216) Two Player Pinball machine. It is certainly the best example in Europe and probably in the entire world. Its previous owner was the late Rick Parfitt of Status Quo!The entire machine has been stripped to components, and the following work carried out by a fully qualified Electrical Engineer. The case refinished (inside and out) in the original colours but retaining the wonderful patina it has gathered in over 52 years of use. Re-wired as necessary with factory standard cloth wiring, relays and coils replaced and lamp holders replaced as required. (All illumination is bright like new). All brackets holders and metalwork under playfield has been hand polished and lacquered.
It is as beautiful inside as the outside! New Chrome 31 Gottlieb Legs, Bolts and Levellers. The Playfield fully stripped, cleaned, re-rubbered with replacement Playfield Plastics as required. New Flippers and Flipper Coils, New Anodised flipper buttons etc. All Playfield Decals, Bullseye and Mushroom Targets Decals replaced with new items.Score and replay reels refinished to as new condition. All bells and Knockers fully operational. Lower Apron refinished with new Decals. All labels inside and out are new.
Original 6d coin mechanism supplied with Sixpences. New Original Double Bitted locks front and back. Original Circuit Diagram, Provenance documentation and spare parts it even has the original framed Flyer! The most unique of all This machine has a NEW , yes NEW Hi-Dolly Backglass that after 100hours of Photoshopping, has been re-printed on toughened glass NOT Perspex. It simply is unmarked and as perfect as it left Gottlieb in April 1965.
Needless to say the entire machine is 100% fully working and plays like it is new! This machine is truly a one off for its condition alone!Add to that its previous celebrity previous owner (fully authenticated and documented), makes this beautiful machine doubly unique. Even my wife, who normally hates these things, loves this one and want me to keep it. This literally is one of if not the best example in the world! There truly is not another like it in the world in this condition It would grace any Man Cave or an incredibly unique gift for a rich Quo fan!
