Meteor (1979)

Meteor is a machine made by Stern in 1979. It was based on the movie of the same name starring Sean Connery and Natalie Wood. I had never seen the movie and about halfway through restoring this pinball machine I decided to watch it. This movie stars a couple of pinball machines as well.

This machine came to us in pretty good shape – short of the playfield being rather worn. It had a couple of score displays out, needed some electronic work, and playfield paint – and of course a good cleaning. Backglass was almost perfect and the cabinet was in very good shape.

You can check out the restoration of Meteor here.

Here it is painted, cleaned up, and making new friends.
