SOLD - Williams Triple Strike (1975 EM) $900 OBO

Post by MCS »

This Williams Triple Strike machine has been in the same family for decades, but the owner has decided it’s time to find it a new home.

It has been in my basement for a couple of years and prior to that it was in the home of @cait001 who did some work to get it functional again.

There is still work that needs to be done! However, included with the machine are three boxes of goodies. They contain a flipper rebuild kit, a replacement score reel, the original manual and schematics, score cards, and various little things like bulbs and fuses.

Even with the existing flippers, the game plays well enough, but there’s an occasional buzzing noise that should probably be addressed...

This machine would be a great project for someone looking to tinker with an EM.

As you can see from the attached photos, the playfield is in rather good condition for the most part. I’ve included close-ups of the areas that are damaged. Plastics are in great condition.

The cabinet is solid, but the paint is scuffed/scratched in a lot of places, especially the head. Probably the original paint job, though.

Asking $900 OBO. No trades at this time because I need the space in my basement and don’t want to be tempted. :)

Located in Ottawa. Je parle aussi français, si vous le préférez.

Let me know if you want to see more photos or a video of gameplay or anything! Thanks for looking.

Apparently someone got tired of draining out the right outlane!

If anyone is thinking of getting a first pinball machine this would be a great one to start with. Especially if you like the charm or have some nostalgia for an older machine.

Good price, a single player Williams is easy to work on, and the game looks like fun!

Thanks for the boost, @dr.nybble. It is a fun game! The ten rollovers in the middle of the playfield (not to mention the four drop targets) give you lots of things to shoot at, if you want to practice your accuracy. You can check out some of the rules here: https://soldmy.org/emguide/index.php/Tr ... ams,_1975)

The link is to Bob Matthews' EM-cyclopedia, so it talks about tournament strategy, but it should give you a good idea notwithstanding.

(It's also me trying to talk myself out of another machine I don't have space for.)

I see from the pics that yours has a similar mod to it that I did to mine -That green bumper cap had to go!

I gave mine to my dad years ago for Christmas, it still gets the love today. Fun game.
