Description: Hit the Deck is a highly collectable pinball machine made by Gottlieb in 1978. This is one of the last EM wedgehead models produced by Gottlieb. Only 375 units were manufactured making this a rare, low-production game. The machine that we are offering for sale is working 100% OK: lamps, solenoids, flippers and all the mechanisms were revised and they are working correctly. The artwork of the playfield looks in good condition. It was partially retouched in some small places. Decals were installed under each of the bumpers (difficult to discern). Set of plastics is in good condition. There are no broken pieces (uncommon to see in this model). The three bumper caps are original and they are in good condition with no broken tabs. The set of rubbers is new. All new light bulbs were installed throughout the machine. Backglass is in good condition. The colors are vibrant and it has some small retouches. The back of the glass was sealed and protected with Krylon Triple-Thick Crystal Clear Glaze. The lower cabinet and the backbox were fully repainted. Custom stencils were made matching the colors and artwork from the original paint on the cabinet. The interior of the lower cabinet and the backbox are very clean. Some of the metal parts on the cabinet (coin door, lockdown bar, legs, chimes, etc.) were polished to a mirror-like finish (see pics). A new set of labels was installed in the backbox and lower cabinet. Two coin mechs for quarters are installed. They are both working without problems. Front door has a lock with the corresponding key. The metal door for the backbox is included and also comes with the lock and the corresponding key. Original cashbox is included. The original schematic, original manual, original envelope, and some additional documentation originally provided by Gottlieb are included. The set of four legs is the original. They are very shiny. Four new leg levelers are also included.
