Speed Way - Williams 1948 FS DB2s

Speed Way - Williams 1948 FS DB2s;sa=view;down=684Williams' Speed Way was released in September 1948.  Speed Way was designed by Harry Williams with art by George Molentin. It is unknown how many were produced but this game is very rare to see today. I was drawn to this game by the unique ball entry and skill shot of circling the field (as in a race track).  I've left the art on this playfield looking a bit beat up and old to honor the age of this game (it was created when I was only 2 years old). This was Harry Williams fourth flipper game, and it shows some of the early evolution of flipper games from flipperless pinball games. Being designed only a year after the invention of the flipper, it still has a lot of the flipperless rolldown game feel to it, but the flippers are starting to play a significant role in making it more of a skill game.
