C8P and Disk Drives coming up for EBay sale

Post by Saltydog51 » Thu Apr 07, 2016 2:02 pm

Challenger 8P with Dual 8" Floppy Disk Drive will very soon be listed on EBay. Computer ID plate reads "C8P DF Serial # 11916, Boards installed include 505-B CPU, (3) Mem cards labeled 0000, 0004 and 0008. Also has label "Custom Debug" on or adjacent to other circuitry. Disk Drive ID plate reads CD (or CO?) 2P. I cannot read the serial number. This computer was removed from business service while still in operating condition 20 years ago, and has been stored dry since then. It makes what appears to be appropriate sounds when plugged in and booted, as does the disk drive, however, I have neither the keyboard nor a monitor that will connect properly to verify what appears on the screen. I also have a number of floppies - some data, some operating system, which I will be listing separately on EBay. Photos of all will be included with auction listings.

Don't you just hate when folks separate boot disks from the computer...
