1975 Gottlieb’s “Legendary” El Dorado

El Dorado is the best drop target game Gottlieb ever made. This like new 1975 El Dorado has been completely mechanically and cosmetically restored (February 2014) and plays like a dream come true. Such a popular machine Gottlieb made many different versions like 1975 Gold Strike, 1977 Solar City and Target Alpha came back again in 1984 with the digital El Dorado city of Gold! None lived up to this the original 1975 "El Dorado".

Some of the top TV shows in 1975 were M*A*S*H, Welcome Back Kotter, Happy Days and The Six Million Dollar Man don't wait another 40 years for a vintage pinball machine they may all be gone.

El Dorado's in general were played hard and often back in 1975 to find one in this nice condition is rare 39 years later. Pinrescue has restore the cabinet and chrome and it looks like it is 1975 all over again. See this link for more info on our cabinet restorations: El Dorado

Quality restored vintage pinball machines are a fun investment you and your family can enjoy every day. Muscle Cars from this era are bringing 6 figures when done right. Pinball machines may follow suit as the demand is booming (read Baby Boomers) and the supply of good working games is limited. Just here did the cool guys drive those Cuda's, Camaro's and Mustangs to back in 1970's? Many times to the local pinball hang out to play their favorite real pinball machine.

El Dorado had a production run of 2,875 machines in 1975 you would be hard pressed to find a nicer playing and looking El Dorado anywhere. Pinrescue's and many others absolute favorite pinball machine we have restored over 2 dozen Eldo's over the years. This El Dorado plays like new. Restored the way you would do it if you had the time, ability and the parts to do it right (restoration completed February 2014).

This is a super popular game it will sell fast. To view a short video of our shop click here To see a short video of the last Abracadabra we rescued click here    to see some other fine Gottlieb machines.
