While surfing the web, I came across a set of pictures from the Museum of Computing in Swindon, UK. In their display of Commodore computers, they have a Commodore 16 in what looks like a VIC-20 case: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mwichary/2225272020/in/set-72157603806074688 Most probably it is an owner modification. If I understood correctly, the actual C16 case is a bit smaller than the VIC/C64 cases, which makes it hard to fit e.g. a C64 motherboard in a C16 case, but the other way around works well if you use your Dremel appropriately. However, does anyone have additional clues. Bil? I suppose this can not be any kind of prototype, as the TED and later on the 264, 364 and 232 models were out in custom cases well before the Plus/4 and C16 models. Also if the proper keyboard with ESC, HELP and double width CLEAR/HOME keys were fitted, it seems odd if the shell was not yet available so it all was test inserted into a recycled VIC shell. It is curious that a such model would be on display on a museum, without any note that the specimen does not resemble the common production model.
