Spark,

There are several up for auction on eBay right now.
They might be a bit dear in price though.
You may even have to give up your first born child. lol Smile

Re: looking for Color Classic

i managed to score the color classic with the lc520 mainboard on ebay.
wasn't too happy about the 70 dollar shipping though.

but hey atleast it works, compared to the non working units that were being sold.

also picked up a performa 5400/180 mainbord,
but i will have to wait a while befor i start tearing into it.

I remember back in the late 90's when Color Classics went for about $100 each. Makes me wish I had bought more than one.

Spark,

Grab your seller before he ships to ensure that the computer is seated centered in the box and there is enough bracing all around it.
I bought a "Operational" CC a while back and when it arrived the picture tube back around the cradle was boken in two. The entire end of the tube was broken off due to handling.

Just a heads up.
