Little Chief Pinball Sold!

Close up of Little Chief Playfield

That was pretty easy! I found a buyer named Dan in Carmel who came over yesterday and bought the Williams Little Chief off the owner in Castleton.

We helped our own cause in the sale when the owner put the game back together first, including the back display back. I found out later it had not been attached in two years, so I was relieved the pinball still worked. He powered up the game, it was a little glitchy at first but did play a couple of full games. The buyer says that the Little Chief needed an adjustment made to the main logic in relation to the scoring unit, and the “gate” needed some work as well. But a great deal on a classic pinball in the Indianapolis area.

The Night Rider pinball machine is still for sale. Hope to get some video of that pinball in action soon. $400 and it’s yours.

Edit ~ I find this a little strange. I had never heard of Little Chief before, but all of a sudden a second machine comes up for sale in Rossville, IN on Craigslist? I don’t think this was our buyer, that would be really rotten to relist for $1900, but it is another nice looking instance of this Williams pinball, even if the seller (765-379-2429) has the year and the name are wrong.

I used to live in Floyds Knobs in the 70’s and 80’s and my dad bought me a little chief machine when i was in 7th grade…..probably around 1981-82….we kept it for a couple of years and then sold it as we moved to the Chicago area.

I wonder if this was mine!

@Ray Kramer:
I don’t think this William’s Little Chief was yours. Mike’s family bought these two pinballs brand new from the factory.

The post above has another Little Chief that was for sale on Craigslist here in Indiana. Maybe that was the one you owned at one time or another. You can always check xmission Mr. Pinball free classifieds to find Little Chief pinballs that are located close to your area there in Chicago.

Glad I could help.

Hey guys. This is Dan, the guy who bought Little Chief off of Jeff. The machine is still in my possession. I have played it almost every day. (Ask my family!) The machine did require some time to get it running again, but it is by far the fastest EM machine I have played. Anyway, I am considering selling it so that I can make room for another project machine. I have enjoyed Little Chief very much.

Incidentally, if you go to http://www.ipdb.org/, you can search and learn about any pinball machine. The production volume of Little Chief was 6,300 units.

I saw that you posted the Little Chief pinball on Craigslist the same day, or the day after here in Indianapolis. Did you end up selling it at that price you listed it?
