New cases for your Commodore 64C, or the classic ‘bread bin’ design (with a bit of extra mounting), produced using the original molds.
In September 2014, Dallas Moore was attending an auction preview of an injection molding company. Amongst the industrial and Tupperware molds there was a piece of computing history- the molds for the Commodore 64C. The Commodore 64 and Commodore 64C sold over 17 million units and brought the home computer into living rooms around the world. The aim of this Kickstarter campaign is to put the original molds back in production. The original target has been trashed, so this project is a go!
“I believe there is a community of people out there who share a love for the Commodore 64C. Whether it’s to change out the ageing and discoloured housing on your computer, or to simply have a unique housing for your next modding project, these molds represent history.”
The three basic colors represent the Commodore Logo as well as limited edition colors and transparent housings. Each design is limited to 500 units and will never be produced again. The best part about this is the price, only $35 a pop. Each unit comes complete with the computer housing (top & bottom), KS64C limited edition sticker, screws and rubber feet. You have to provide the juicy electrical innards / keyboard.
