Related Items in Collection Disk drives, documentation, software, Franklin Ace 1000 and Franklin Ace 1200 clone systems, various later Apple models.
Related Items Wanted Apple 1 (yeah, right)

Introduced in 1979, the Apple ][ Plus was Apple's third machine released, after the Apple I and Apple ][. The Plus was virtually identical to the standard Apple ][ model, but it had a different ROM monitor and a floating point BASIC.

This particular Apple ][ Plus has two floppy drives, a joystick, an 80 column card, printer card and that strange keypad that you see in the picture. I honestly have no idea what that item is, so if there are any hints out there I'm hoping for some information.

I also have a full set of manuals for this machine, as well as a couple of dozen disks full of software.

I've recently added a second Apple ][ Plus to my collection. This one came with its original boxes!

Removing the top packaging shows the machine below in its original bag. There is no doubt that this is a used system, but it's been well kept, as has the packaging.

Apple ][ Plus drives

The disk ][ drives also came with their original boxes, foam and documentation.

The system unit is clean and in excellent shape.

The system, assembled and complete.

The keyboard is a bit stubborn but that can be cleaned and tuned.

Apple ][ Plus Manuals

The system came complete with a full set of Apple manuals as well as some after-market stuff.

Thank you Jerry Stanley for donating this latter system!

I don't know if anyone reads this anymore but if there is a serious collector out there I have a very complete Apple IIGS system. Only very respectable and serious offers as this system has much sentimental value to me so if I don't sell it oh well maybe I'll pull her out of storage and awaken the child inside again. I have the main computer, monitor, keyboard, mouse, 5.25 drive, two 3.5 drives, imagewriter II printer, and the monitor and keyboard covers. Oh did I mention the two boxes of software and games. Everything works but printer (ink dried up). Like I said only VERY serious collectors need contact me. I have no problem holding this system another 23 or 46 years.

I used to own one of these back in 1981 and ran various BBS's on it from 1984 to 1987. The Apple ][+ only was able to type UPPERCASE. I ended up changing one of the chips on it so that it would do both UPPER and lower.

We had a Sider 10 meg hard drive and a Novation Apple Cat with 212A card. Later I got a Hayes Smartmodem 2400. I eventually moved on to an Apple //e and an Apple ][gs with 1 meg before jumping to the PC world in 1987/1988. These computers were my stepping stones to entering the world of I.T.

If you had a Novation Apple-Cat, you should remember using a program called Cat-Fur to be able to call BBS's to flip-flop the 300 and 1200 duplexes since the Novation Apple-Cat was a 1200 baud half duplex modem unless you purchased the $275 option of the 212A card.

My Junior High computer class had a whole bunch of Apple ][+ computers by the time I got there where we were learning to program using Applesoft BASIC.

Hi, unfortunate for some I'm located in NYC, NY area. I have an Apple II plus in working condition which I purchased from an original owner. It comes with one Disk II Drive and the Apple Monitor III. I should have some the manuals he gave me. I've only powered it up and tried one of the Floppy Disks to test that it worked. Have not fully checked the keyboard out. If anyone is interested I'm willing to selling locally or ship if it's worth my efforts. This was a complete system purchased from a local computer store from New Hyde Park, NY with the company labels on each of the individual pieces.

Way back in the day, when I was playing with these in JrHigh, programming in BASIC, I learned how to control the Floppy drive. Me and a few friends discovered the 'PUNCH CODE,' or rather how to selectively perforate a floppy disc by crashing the read head into it. Those of you who remember working with punch cards will find this amusing. We sure did.

When an Apple ][+ was sold, it came with a complete set of manuals. These included a complete firmware listing, electrical schematic, and a guide for people who wanted to build cards to work inside the machine. Apple was truly open with its design in those days. When Apple introduced the Mac, that all changed.

The Apple ][+ was a great machine, among the best of its type in its day.

hello i was taking notice to your site and just wanted to say that i have a black apple 2 in my possession now and am trying to get rid of it. It has only had 2 owners one before me. The keyboard is black but they didn't make a black monitor (so i have read) so i have a beige monitor. The cpu comes one but with the monitor not showing a picture it is hard to tell if it is working properly. The light on the monitor is on but no picture. I have 2 drives to go with it. I have pics of it that i can supply. I have more than enough software for the unit and some still in original packaging with the books to go with it. If you are interested please feel free to drop me a line, or if you know someone that would be interested in it. Thanks for your time.
