FULLY WORKING like the day it came out of the factory and the entire dome has been polished!

Here it is! The grail of HOLY GRAILS!

7' Williams Ten Strike.

In 1957 Williams made three versions of this game. There was a five foot long 2-player version, which was the most popular. A seven foot long 6-player version (this was the least popular with one of the main complaints being that all the score windows took up most of the backglass, leaving very little art work to be seen), and then this seven foot 2-player version (which is the most sought after version).

This is considered a "mechanically animated manikin bowling game". The bowling man turns and his arm swings to throw the ball, which is a bit larger than a pinball machines standard ball. Williams bought the idea and it's believed the "little man" tooling from Evan in 1955 when they went out of business (Even made a very similar game almost a decade earlier, but went out of business in 1955.)



What's been done;

- Game FULLY WORKS 100%
- Electrically the game has been completely refurbished.
- Every switch cleaned, polished and adjusted.
- All the pins are original, intact and have been restrung (comes with a couple extra pins).
- The entire Arm Mechanism has been rebuilt (new Arm Coil and new springs).
- The backglass is a brand new reproduction.
- Brand new shiny cigarette holders.
- Both back doors are not original (I made new one's out of plywood).
- Oddly, the acrylic cover is in 2 pieces.
- The acrylic cover has been completely polished
- The game plays 100% as it should.
- Includes manual and schematic

Please note, if you can SEE this ad, IT'S STILL AVAILABLE! The map is quite accurate, just let me know when you'd like to come by and give it a play! Super easy loading from my garage and if you don't have a way to transport it, I can "help" deliver it in my truck after it's been purchased (n/c for up to 1/2 hour away). I'd consider a possible partial trade for other non-working arcade games, especially pinball machines.
