    Hello, I am new on this site however not to some of you. I have an opportunity to buy an Indiana Jones (Williams) pinball that has been folded for 10 years and has heavy insert wear and cabinet fade. What would be a fair price? There are no keys and was said to be working when folded....Any advice??

    Thx

    6k or so , i would ask to set it up and plug it in to see what happens , also how much battery acid damage may be on the board , keys who cares bring a drill and drill let out , your going to need too anyways

    Thanks for your reply..I can get it for just under $7k..so maybe its ok to take a chance on it...will need to be stripped and shopped but maybe not too bad..Thank you.

    true true...i can feel my way around a machine, was just curious of what this machine may bring in this kind of condition...$6-7 k was where I thought..the title does seem to command a premium so I think I will be all right as long as it boots and flips...the inserts are my main concern...not sure how to address that other than with some paint or decals?..it is local to me and not likely to get another at the price anytime soon I am thinking...thx for the feedback!..any suggestions on insert wear?
