Can anyone identify this cabinet, I know it is a conversion but I wish to restore it to it's original state. Right now it's Gladiator and  hidden behind the marquee is one for Elevator Action. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I can't believe that I'm going to possibly identify this cabinet instead of the MASTER JOHN himself.

Here's the cabinet identity chart on this forum. Look at the Bally/Midway picture, 3rd row from the top, second cabinet from the RIGHT side. Satan's Hollow. Is that it?

 Grin I was thinking that too but the silhouette looked a little off. Wasn't clear until I googled the actual cabinet. Good call. Thanks. Now the question is do I restore to Satan's Hollow, Elevator Action or keep it as Gladiator?

I don't think it is Satan's hallow since the monitor is more in the cabinet and the control panel is smaller, I did some research and could not find anything I am completely stumped on this

That threw me off too. Plus the angle of the cuts and the 4 bolts at the bottom on the face of the cabinet are not present on my cabinet.

Is it?! The bezel angle was throwing my off. It's wrong.

It's close, but is it close enough? Could it be an early version of Satan's Hollow?

What is stumping me the most about this is that you state that it was once a elevator which makes me think its not a Satan's hallow at all since it seems unlikely to convert a game that is a year old into something new, Is there any tags on the back of the machine or inside?  I would also suggest checking to see if there are any holes cut where the original stuff was

Well it is kind of tough to really know being that the chart is only silhouette's. Call it my best guess.  Wink

Think it could be a Satan's Hollow cabinet that has been modified?Huh?? Maybe it had some sort of damage and they cut it off??

After looking at your new posted photo's this is what I think, I agree with P-feif that it is probably a modified Satan's hollow that has been cut near the monitor and control panel either due to damage or for the monitor I have seen case's of operator modification like this for monitors but it also has been cut to add ventilation covers probably for the monitor change and I also think why the 4 screws there are gone is since the wood looks to be replaced. I also think the operator converted the game to elevator action since Satan's hollow was pretty controversial for having Satan and demons

Also on other notes I find it kinda funny that the operator just put the elevator action marquee underneath the gladiator marquee

I think you're right. This cabinet is a frankencabinet. I think I'll just fix it up as is.

Here's a tag I missed. Doesn't make sense to me.
