Four rebuilt flippers, two brand new pop bumpers we also replaced every white post, all 10 drop targets, cabinet buttons, ball shooter, coin door, new legs, coin entry, side rails, locks and every lamp and rubber. Fresh correct cabinet paint great Gottlieb drop target game in great cosmetic and mechanical condition. Try to knock down the ten bowling pin drop targets with five balls per game. Freshly restored January 2017 every function works as it should.

These 1970's Gottlieb single player "wedgeheads" (cabinet design) with drop targets sell as fast as we can restore them. In 1973 when you may have been playing machines like King Pin at your local hangout, O.J. Simpson of the Buffalo Bills became the first running back to rush for 2,000 yards in a pro football season.
