1976 Gottlieb's "Ships Ahoy" great single player Addaball machine in mint original condition. Rare machine made for New York and Wisconsin the two states that outlawed replay (win free games) pinball. Gottlieb and the other manufactures came up with winning extra balls to circumvent that stupid law which was repealed in late 1976. This beautiful machine was mechanically restored (March 2011) and needed no cosmetic restoration as good as they get all original.

Great pinball action trying to make all the numbers on the ships wheel. Make them all and 3 Wows light to add extra balls which light up on the glass as "WOW's. Win additional Wows with high scores. Many collectors prefer Addaball machines because of the extra long play in your home.

Fine features found on this Ships Ahoy:

  • Spin and Spot awards wheel numbers

  • 3 rebuilt (brand new) pop bumpers

  • 2 Rebuilt (brand new) flippers

  • 2 new high scoring bumpers 500 points each Win wows (extra balls) for score and wows

  • 100,000 plus scoring for over the top fun

Might be the nicest Ships Ahoy on the planet looks like it is 3 weeks old not the 35 years old it really is. Some movies you might have went to in 1976 were "Rocky" , "King Kong", "Carrie"  and "Marathon Man"

don't wait another 35 years for a vintage pinball machine they may all be gone. Gottlieb made the finest electromechanical pinball machines right here in America they are of a quality the Germans and Chinese can't touch. One of the few investments you can enjoy everyday in your home. Pinrescue has only restored 2 Ships Ahoy in the 15 year we have been doing only vintage pinball full time. Good chance if you miss this one it will be a long time before we get another and every chance it will not be as nice as this one.
