Still worth money for all the parts if it wasnt restored

Twenty years ago I scrapped a Goliath and yeeted the body panels onto the tip, a cab that was in a pristine state compared to this.

Photographic memory of that event still plagues me till this day, so now I'll never throw anything away ever again to attempt to atone for my sins.

But now, we are in desperate times.

I know mate, had to scrap a Mk1 Goliath, was better than this though no monitor in it, needed some work to the top like this but wasn't damp, had artwork on sides so it wasn't bad but people don't seem to value jamma cabs, should though as we all need them for the pcb collections and many of us were happy to play games in them in the 80's, if cab had marquee and game running it was all that mattered

For some reason, Goliath cabs have become quite sought after recently.  They always sell and they always go for quite a lot.

All this one needs is a new shell, artwork, CRT, chassis, control panel, all controls, JAMMA loom, PSU, coin doors, bolts and wheels and it's good to go.  Smile

About the same time I had 9 of these and could not give them away! I got more money for the control panels and wiring looms  on ebay  than I could sell a cab for iirc £100 for a wiring loom and £60 for a control panel, sadly the wood got burntEmbarrassed although I did sell 2 so only 7 got burntShocked

The sticks don't look like hall effects anymore. But someone put an EFTPOTRM in that at one time.

My initial thought was that it's been left outside in the rain and got so soggy the weight of the marquee section has caused it to collapse. Looking at it again though, the wood at the back in this pic doesn't look swollen at all so maybe it's had impact damage on that site?

Either way £200+ for that is crackers, which leads me to believe that bidders must have been assured that it's been dry stored and maybe they've been told there's a pcb inside and possibly identified it?

A bit too far gone for me :D especially at the price it may fetch (currently at £350)

what is wrong with folk, are they just taking piss bidding or they really hoping it's got rare board inside, will turn up to collect, when find no pcb inside or anything worth value just walk away and it's be relisted

When I said £300 I wasn't really expecting it, just crazy

The only redeeming feature I can see is there's a monitor in there. God knows what state its in though.
