One for Collectors! - Commodore 64-C 'Drean' Ultra Rare from Commodore Argentinian - RARE
In Argentinia, the Commodore C64 was sold under the name "Drean". The company Drean bought parts from Commodore and built computers out of them to avoid import costs.
Looks to be very original parts - 326298 Rev A motherboard with gold pin ceramic dRam - 86 / 87 chips apart from early PLA and modern replacement SID chip.
The Drean 64C has a case that was designed by Drean in Argentinia but that is very similar to the design of the original Commodore case. Differences are the round instead of rectangular power LED and a metal plate around the connectors on the right side of the computer.
The VIC-II graphics chip was replaced in the Drean by a MOS 6572, which supports the PAL-N TV-norm from South America. Most modern UK,EU, AUS TV's support this signal.
Because of the rarity of this model it's recommend for collectors only.
