SOLD --- Coleco ADAM Computer Package

Recommended Posts

I have up for sale a very large ADAM Computer package that I have meticulously assembled with the idea of offering it up for sale to someone here on AtariAge that has been looking to buy one of these systems, but did not want to go thru all the time, hassle and expense of finding "working" components of the system.... let alone test and clean everything and then acquire software to use with it.


Each item listed out below has been tested, disassembled, cleaned, re-assembled and tested again very thoroughly over the course of the last three weeks to the best of my abilities and using all the available ColecoVision and ADAM test utility cartridges and software that I have available to me. As far as the system and all the extras stand, they are in 100% working condition and the physically are in very good condition except for a couple noted items at the bottom of the package list.


Local pickup is very welcome if you are within a reasonable distance. Shipping will be via the best option that I can find, not necessarily the cheapest with USPS being the frontrunner currently. The ADAM Computer box will be placed inside of another larger box to protect it from any further harm that will be 40"x20"x10" in size and weight roughly 40pds. The rest of the items will be shipped in a second box that I haven't packaged up yet, but will ASAP and then add the information here.


I will consider any and all Foreign purchasers, but will be brutally honest in saying that a possible U.S. purchaser is favored.


Here is the complete list of everything I have amassed along with a large number of pictures:

First off, I would not be sure you could even ship this via USPS packed in a box to other countries. Size may limit that.


And second, sweet disk collection. I'd buy that alone if offered, even knowing it was all reproduction.

how much is shipping to zip 20191

and what formes of payment do you take


I'll work up the shipping prices (USPS, UPS, etc.) for the two boxes and then PM you with the details.


As far as payment, PayPal is the easiest and quickest method and if we reach an agreement on a sale, I would send you a PayPal Invoice. I wouldn't expect anyone to be agreeable to a PayPal Gift payment for this amount of money... although it would be very nice to avoid their fees.

A big reason why I prefer a U.S. purchaser so that I don't have to fold up the ADAM box.

Well, I do have to order more labels from PBoland as well as find some more NOS disks... so I'll keep you in mind.


BTW, here are the ADAM 5 1/4" Disk Sleeves that PBoland can supply. The beige sleeve is a reproduction of Coleco's own design and the white sleeve is PBoland's own creation. I would have included these as well in the package, but I had to stop somewhere with everything that I was including.

Snap this up someone! This is a PHENOMENAL price! Practically a fire sale! If I were in permanent digs I'd be buying it myself!


Also I can't name a specific food that tastes terrible cold.

Just trying to give someone a chance to get their ADAM on like I stated in the CV&ADAM Forum thread... especially an AtariAge member. If it goes to eBay, the price will go up considerably for the obvious reason of seller fees.


Thanks for the appreciation you have shown for the system package as well as the price... both starting and reduced. I was actually thinking I'd get some "are you nuts with the high price" posts and not the other way around.

When I consider how much time and effort my own set took and the prices I paid, this is a bargain. Still wanting a set of those dust covers!



If there are no takers here on AtariAge and this ends up going to eBay, I'll pull the Dust Cover set and we can work out a price from there. I'm thnking.... $$$.$$ ! ;)

Good lord I'm tempted, I could buy that easy. But the moment I bought it the first thing I'd do is turn around and eBay it. :grin:

That wouldn't bother me in the least as I got the amount I asked for and the stuff would be your's to do with what you may. Now if you had asked me to help you assemble a system package like this, purchased it from me and then turned around and flipped it for a big profit, that would be a little upsetting... but then again well within your right as you would be the current owner.

How much would shipping to the uk be ?????

Send me a PM with your Postal Code and I can check other carriers as well, but so far, USPS looks like only a Priority Mail International option:


Box #1 - 40"x20"x10" 40pds = $157.65

Box #2 - 18"x12"x8" 15pds. = $86.40


So in the ballpark of $250 for just the shipping and then I would also insure these properly, so that a further charge. Prices fluctuate, so these numbers could change up or down.


As far as the ADAM box (the big one), it looks like I could send it intact, not have to fold it up and place into smaller boxes if I am understanding the USPS box size max dimensions correctly.... "Max. length 60", max. length plus girth combined 108"". Can someone chime in concerning box #1 and if it's within these parameters?

It has been my experience that most of the postal workers don't even know the rules. Your best bet is having it done and paid online with all your forms printed or paperwork in order. Use the usps.com website for all the quotes and have it printed out.


Your girth is

10" + 20" + 10" + 20" = 60" + Length 40" = 100"




You are under 108" so I say you are safe.
