We are pleased to be offering this lovely 1963 Gigi pinball machine from Gottlieb. The game is fully restored and was imported from San Francisco in 2012 and then sold in 2014. We are selling it on behalf of a customer of ours who is slimming down his collection. It has been kept exceptionally well for the last 4 years in a private UK collection. The glass is a reproduction glass from the USA, the playfield is original, yes original and the cabinet correctly repainted and restored to it's original colours and pattern. The front door and coin chutes are new. The external metal work has been polished and plated and the game plays exceptionally well. 3,575 units were made of this very popular game. The backglass features a "blonde lady" which mysteriously looks very much like Marilyn Monroe. Apparently Monroe appeared in a black and white charity photo in 1958 or 1959 in a similar pose surrounded by clowns which inspired Roy Parker to create a similar artwork for the backglass.. The game was called Gigi probably after the famous musical film of the same title from 1958 with Leslie Caron.


This game plays better than any other Gigi we have ever had and was part of G. Malvermi's collection until 2014. It has recently been serviced and tested at the owner's propert but will be fully serviced prior to delivery. It comes with 1 year warranty and parts and labour (UK mainland only) and 1 free service call from date of delivery. The game also comes with a copy of the schematics. These games do NOT come up that often for sale, especially not in this condition.
