Commodore 65 Prototype

I didn't even manage to get all the photos saved before the seller pulled down the listing (which was HERE). Not too many of these were made, so I do wonder which one this is- last I knew all of Commodore's prototypes were pretty much accounted for.



They stated in the listing that they wanted $10,000 for it, but had it set up as a regular auction, so I had the high bid when the page disappeared.

Will definitely keep an eye out, though I'd wager one of the YouTube channels with deeper pockets would be the ones to actually grab it if it does crop up again.

Man, that thing looks really cool! I know that there was a company making a fully working replica of this and just recently shipped them out to buyers. Pretty expensive even for the replica though if I remember right.

I recall the replica, though not the name. I'm kicking myself for not jumping on those photos sooner- this one did appear to be the real deal from Commodore with MOS chips.
