I have never seen a C65 either, but I seem to remember from the manual that I read in 1996 that the hardware boots up in 64 mode. The KERNAL would switch it to the "native" mode by writing some magic to the VIC-III registers. This was supposedly in order to improve compatibility with cartridges and the like.
