Description: Grand & Grand Prize (bowling alley), Chicago Coin, 3/63, "swing-away" servicing (aka "outlaw sprint wing" or "free-back", which was only used on four CCM bowlers), normal sized score reels (large score reels discontinued earlier), six games (including Regulation, Select Strike, Beat-the-Champ, Flash-o-matic, Dual Flash, 3-Star), 13, 16, 21 foot length. The only difference between CCM "Grand" and "Grand Prize" (other than color) is the "Grand" model had a lane divider between the pins and the ball lane, where "Grand Prize" did not have this. The lane divider gave a cleaner look (the ball pit is far less visible, there are no lane rollover switches, there's no way to spill beer on the lane switches, and the ball never hits the pins so there is no pin breakage problems). But the lane divider also gives a somewhat funky look to the "Grand" bowler. The base color of a "Grand" is a salmon red color, where the base color of a "Grand Prize" is a gray-black. Both similar to the CCM Grand Spare Lite and Official Spare Lite bowlers.
