Gottlieb Strength Tester Arcade Game 1940's Original
This is an original Gottlieb arcade strength or grip tester from the 1940's. The machine is complete and in good working condition. The chrome or Nickel plating on the grip arms are in surprisingly nice condition, all the little springs and other working parts on the inside are present and in good working condition as well. The coin box and lock and key are also present. It appears that this machine has had very little use. The machine has been restored to it's original 1940's condition, the exterior paint, decals, and dial face have all been replaced. It would be difficult to find a nicer example of a Gottlieb strength tester. The case is made out of heavy gauge steel.
To operate, just drop in a penny. You can either squeeze the center pull bar or push or pull the outer bars. If you’re strong enough, the bell will ring! David Gottlieb is considered to be a king of pinball but he actually started out making these strength testers in Chicago back in the 1920’s. In those days one could find these machines in every bar. No electricity needed, just a few coins and some muscle.
Size is about 8” X 13” X 18”. Weight is about 20 lbs.
