    Default Maruhon & Sankyo for parts or restoration

    Yesterday, I took a trip down the hill and took a look at what I found in a Craigslist ad that was nearby. Attached are photos of the two machines.

    He was asking $35 for each, but I declined. The machines were likely operable if cleaned, but too many flaws for me to consider them. He stated he would be willing to drastically reduce the prices considering my opinion of them, but I figured they would just sit around my garage, too.

    So I promised him I would post them here on this forum.

    The Maruhon is an Indy car theme, colorful, and the tulips and other attachments are in near perfect condition. The downfalls? A cracked (with a piece missing) top ball tray in front and a water stained cell. On the back, some cracked plastic, but it appears to be only cosmetic damage, and dirt/cobwebs. It appears the vital parts are in place.

    On the Sankyo, the playfield is in very good condition, as are the tulips, etc. There is rust on the frame, and it is missing an ashtray. The rust is worse on the inside, and I know it would probably polish out easily. On the back, the payout tray is cracked, with a large piece missing. It's certainly better than a missing tray, but that combined with the missing ashtray prevented me from taking it.

    Attached are photos. Please email me if you would like more detailed photos. I'm willing to pick up these machines and retain them or part them out for any member. I have a barn out back where the wife will never see them.

    This post will include the Maruhon pics, the next, Sankyo.

    The Sankyo. Sorry, not too detailed on the playfield, it is nice though.
