Difference between PAL and NTSC Coco 1?

Recommended Posts

So I've managed to snag myself a rather unusual old computer (at least over here in Sweden), a PAL TRS-80 Coco model 1. Now I'm wondering if there is any big differences between the PAL model and the far more common US version? Because if at all possible I want to give it a composite mod, something that seems to be rather easy to do just based on a simple google search, though I can't tell if the mods available will work without modification on a PAL computer.

I cannot answer this question, sadly, but was the PAL Coco ever sold in Europe?

 

I know about the British Dragon 32 systems, and the PAL model was sold in Australia, but there is very little information about distribution elsewhere in the world.

Pal units do not display the artifact colours seen on the NTSC units but everything else is the same, only difference is artifacts not working on Pal units.
