Commodore C65 Serial No 000097

Published 01 February 2019


There are not many of the legendary Commodore C65s in existance any more. Rumour has it that there were as little as 200 development mules produced and sold at the time of bankruptcy. I has been a while since a Commodore C65 has been available on the open market. Serial No 000097 transferred ownership in 2017. This may be one of the last Commodore C65s sold. We look at the eBay listing of the Commodore C65 serial no 000097.

Introduction to the Commodore C65 Serial 000097

The Commodore C65 was under development before Commodore entered bankruptcy. This machine was going to be a high-powered, very low-priced microcomputer for first time buyers. We go into more detail about the strengths of this wonderful microcomputer in our Commodore C65 journal.
