1963 RACE-WAY PINBALL Project Working Original Midway Raceway Rare Racing
Up for sale is an original 1963 Race-Way pinball machine made by Midway. Race-Way starts up and plays, with the playfield features working (targets, kickouts, etc). The score reels reset, and the scoring appears to function as it should. The right flipper is sticky; the flippers could use a rebuild most likely. A previous owner added a physical switch to the top of the upper cabinet to add credits (please see the pictures). This could be removed and the hole filled, if the future owner chooses to do so. The backglass animation does work, but the wheels on the cars to do not seem to roll freely – the cars appear to slide along the track instead of rolling. I assume the axles on the cars need to be cleaned/degreased and then lubricated, but I have not attempted this maintenance. The playfield is in good shape considering the age, with a few wear spots here and there. The playfield has not been cleaned or shopped, so with new rubbers and a little work it could be improved significantly. The cabinet paint is flaking; although the patina may not bother some who prefer the original artwork, others may prefer to repaint the cabinet and make the game look immaculate. The wood of the cabinet is in good shape and seems free of any water damage or other major issues. The backdoor to the upper cabinet is particle board and not as solid as the rest of the cabinet, but is functional and not noticeable from the front. The original backglass is flaking in areas; the game includes a reproduction backglass not yet installed (silkscreened on plexiglass). More pictures are available upon request.
