I bought these Apple II plus parts (complete case, power supply and revision 4 board – no keyboard) from a fellow kasettilamerit member in order to get my original Apple II ready and assembled as it was missing few parts. I thought just to sacrifice some parts from regular common Apple II plus to it. My ][ was missing just power supply and the main logic board.
It turned out that the Plus i got was actually nice reasonably early unit with serial A2S2-12313 making it from later part of 1979.
The board was Revision 4 from 44 week of 1979. It had also full 48k RAM and Swe/Fin keyboard character ROM “R0 3-2513-703/CGR-703/7932U”-instaled.
Apple II+ was released in June 1979 (around weeks 22-26 in June) and the production ended in December of 1982.
The board was wired with two wires to Slot 7 in order to be able to use the PAL Encoder-card for color. This was typical practise before Europlus was released.
Power supply was silver model of Astec AA11040 with 115/230v switch and date code APR 11 1979. Period perfect as well.
What was nice touch was that it had asset tag from “OYKS” (Oulu University Hospital) and it was entered in an inventory 31.12.1980.
I however removed the one placed in the lid, but kept the one on left side of the unit.
11 5 79 2 stamped inside the case. Manufacturing date of the case.
Cleaning the keyboard i had obtained earilier.
It turned out pretty nice. The keyboard have such great touch to when typing. Really like it.
But as it’s Revision 4 board it wont output colors nicely, not to my LCD or my 9″ PVM.
So i kind of went backwards with the ][ restoration but it doesn’t matter really. That unit can use any parts as it’s never going to be 100% accurate. Revision 0 boards cost fortunes as well do the early type of keyboards. I’ll most likely use Rev.7/RFI board with it and some working keyboard when ever i find those.
Finnish Apple II history again preserved.
This is why Finapple exists.
