Thread: Odd Commodore 64 design?

  1. #1

    Default Odd Commodore 64 design?

    Found a Commodore 64 that looks like the breadbin and C64C combined on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/132496648300 does anyone find the design odd? It looked like it was repaired by an Aussie or the case was purchased from Southern Australia. I'll put this here:

    Thirty years ago, you could buy a "C" style case from a catalog, for use with the earlier style gubbins.

    It was being sold for improved cooling. I'm surprised this isn't seen more often.

    Having never bought one, I don't know if they were genuine Commodore parts with vents, or some aftermarket thing like this one.

    This was an aftermarket case, to make your old 64 look like the new 64C when it came out:

    Interesting. I've never seen a case like that for a C64, and I was 3 when they discontinued the C64 back in 1994.

    I had one of those. It's a cool design but the case itself was pretty cheaply made. Not all that common these days but they did sell a number of them.
