'Miss Universe' was a Bingo pinball machine, produced by Bally, in America, in 1975.

 Selected for its age, vintage aesthetic condition, and because the electro-mechanical components were no longer working, this 'Miss Universe' back-box score board has since been repurposed, transformed into an illuminated functional coffee table and magazine rack.

 First the electro-mechanical components were stripped out, removing the bulk of the weight. These precious component parts, were offered to local pinball restorers.

 The back-box scoreboard was then fitted with a wooden magazine rack, replacing the area where the cabinet and playfield was removed, and fitted with wooden legs using chunky nuts and bolts.

 All the wooden components were handmade using Ash wood to match the backbox. The Ash was then oiled with 3 layers of Danish oil for a natural, low lustre finish.

 The table was then fitted with a 3 Core Vintage Gold Silk Covered Flexible Cable, attached to a tough plug, fitted with a 3 Amp Fuse, attached to a junction box, and connected to long life, warm white, twinkling LED lamps; 18 of the 120 LED bulbs twinkle.

 The original glass top was then replaced with toughened safety glass.

 Dimensions: H65cm x W75cm x L115cm

 * Please be advised that this piece is a repurposed pinball machine which no longer functions to be played, but appreciates the aesthetics, history and memory of the pinball machine.

 * At the time of being purchased for repurpose, the machine was 38 years old. This machine has not been restored, it was purchased for the appreciation of natural wear and tear that comes with age. Though such wear and tear adds to the aesthetics of this vintage piece, it does not affect the stability of its structure.
