A site visitor in the Alexandria, Virginia area is offering a Model I system free for local pickup.
Details (From the donator): Model I, Level II, 16K. I purchased in in 1980 at the Springfield Mall in PA. It was working when I boxed it up in 1985 and stored it in a bedroom. Now there is a problem. I’m able to enter and run a simple program, but the characters displayed on the screen aren’t as expected. I suspect the monitor is fine, and maybe a contact in the computer is corroded. I’m including the computer, monitor, power supply, cassette recorder, original box, two Level II Basic Reference Manuals and some cassettes.
Note (From Ira): My hardware expert, Ian Mavric, believes from the pictures that it is more than likely that the cause of the problem is that one of the video RAM chips has failed.

As always, to keep away those would say “hey, would you ship” (when the above states local pickup only), please contact me at email@example.com if you can do a local pickup and I will relay in the order received.
