Identify Brand of 1972 Pool Table Model 60-40398-R


Identify Brand of 1972 Pool Table Model 60-40398-R

I am trying to figure out the brand or manufacturer for a pool table I have. There is no information visible, but the plate reads:

Manufactured by member of BCA in 1972

model: 60-40398-R

Any help or info would be great!

    I have the same pool table.

    Manufactured by member of BCA in 1972
    Model: 60-40398-R
    SN# 8157

    Did you ever locate the name brand or any information on the table?

    Mine is 100% disassembled and the instructions sheet for assembly would be excellent to locate.

    This is a tough one. Only thing I could find was this ad, but still didn't get a brand or a manufacturer name. We're getting closer though.

    Price: 150150 USD $150 for 8 ft slate table with 88 X 44 playing area. Slate playing surface is intact. Green cloth in good shape without any stains. The table and has a green plastic cover. I was unable to locate the make but found the model/serial: 6040398R/6161.The table does not come with any balls or cues. A wooden cue rack (shown in the picture) is included. A ceiling pool light fixture (shown in the picture) is also included. The light fixture is made with heat resistant plastic but looks like stained glass.The pool table is located in the basement of a single family house. The buyer is responsible for disassembly and transportation of the table. I am willing to exchange goods of equivalent value or gift cards instead of cash payment for the pool table. Please contact me if you have something to exchange. Location: Schaumburg, IL. Posting ID: 3464299179

    ...and here is the photo:

    Is this the same as the one you have?

    Let us know if you come across anything.

    Absolutely. This is the table I have. Thank you so much for trying get more info on the brand. Very strange that a item like a American Pool Table would not be stamped anywhere with a brand name.

    Agreed. What we had (and still have) is a lot of private labeling of pool tables. Some big box store wants to sell pool tables, so one of the big pool table manufacturers will make a cheaper line for them, and the deal is that they are not to have markings from the original manufacturer. The retailer sometimes never puts their own plate on them.

    And another similar AD:

    I Have A 7'8"X4' Pool Table Manufactured By A Member Of BCA. Would like to identify brand. I have a 7'8"x4' pool table with 1" slate and ball return manufactured by a member of BCA. It is Model 60, 92378-, serial # 5931. It was manufactured in 1978. What make could it be?

    ...and we might have a brand!

    **"Montgomery Ward" pool tables "Centurion" line. **

    If you search on this phrase above you should be able to find some info. Some photos below.

    Slate Pool table W/accessories Montgomery Ward Centurion Ended: Jul 27, 2015 , 5:38 PM Price: US $333.33

    Table is from late 70's but still in excellent condition. Felt still good, very slight fade, not wear patterns or damage.

    Brand: Montgomery Wards Model: 60-4-40398-R

    This pool table has outer dimensions of 56" W by 100" L and 31" Tall. Included are wooden rack, complete ball set, 4 cues, original manual, and table brush. It is a Montgomery Wards Centurion Model 60-4-40398-R with ball return. Table is assembled at our home which has been sold, so buyer must arrange to disassemble and remove table before 7/24/2015. This is a local pick up only auction and buyer is responsible for moving. You will need to have at least 2 strong people, preferably 3 or 4 to move without damaging the table. We likely will not be able to assist at all. The table is in very good condition, plays great, and looks great.

    Amazing! Thank you for all the assistance. Now just hoping someone will be nice and scan the assembly instructions so they can then post them to the site.

    I was wondering if anyone ever posted or found instructions for the Montgomery Ward Centurion pool table?

    I have this pool table and I am wondering how to install the felt over the slate?

    Here's what I have:
