Apple II

Recently I restored an Apple II which was #133 from the first batch of motherboards produced. I believe that this board was sold as a motherboard without the case and remained that way until it came into my possession. I put this motherboard into a mint Apple II case, with an early keyboard with the dome power light and an early A2M001 power supply serial number #521. I have also installed integer roms and the programmer’s aid on the motherboard (thanks Geoff!).

This machine is a work in progress, and I will continue to post updates as I add manuals, peripherals and other cards to the system.

    Wow, absolutely stunningly beautiful! That case is truly mint. I bought my Rev. 0 in January 1978, case #2527, motherboard #2668, and the case took a beating over many years. My Apple II pales in comparison to yours, and will never look as nice. Congrats! – Fred

    That’s a beautiful machine. I’ve never seen the power supply with the toggle switch.
    My Rev 0 was bought in 1978 from Electronic Enterprises in Sydney..later morphed into Apple Australia, and in the 80′s I ‘upgraded’ the mother-board to a II+. Now I’m green with envy, but I did build one of Mike Willegal’s Rev 0 copy. BTW: your photography is pretty good too :) Well Done.

    It would be great to read how you restored the board.

    Hi, just visited your web site and had a couple of questions maybe you could help me with.

    I purchased a vintage apple 2 ( dated 1978 on MB ) with case, with power supply and assorted cards.

    How should I procede restore this computer to running condition?
