Here i have for Sale
a collectable from the duke of lancaster AKA the mostyn funship.
The duke of lancaster funship operated from 1981 until 1983, this machine was made in 1981 so has had little use.
This machine has been on the ship all that time since it closed down in 1983 right up until february 2012 when all the machines were removed from the ship and sold to collectors.
qoute from wikipedia...
In early 2012 several local arcade game collectors made a deal with Solitaire Liverpool ltd and were able to purchase most of the coin operated machines left behind inside the ship at the time the fun ship closed. Removing the games required the use of cranes and other heavy lifting equipment.
The game is a Siddam missile storm which was not working when i bought it due to being on the ship unused for all those years and the sea air getting to it.
