You could list it as an auction for a quick, guaranteed sale. If not, then you could list at a high price, then lower it if it doesn't sell. The price depends on whether people are interested in buying these or not.can not find someone who has been sold what to put in price?
then it is in sweden so shipping will be expensive if it is worth selling it?
have no idea what to value it for.You could list it as an auction for a quick, guaranteed sale. If not, then you could list at a high price, then lower it if it doesn't sell. The price depends on whether people are interested in buying these or not.
The buyer will be charged for postage depending on their location, so shipping shouldn't be a problem.
Does it have a model number?
The Hyperdrive was probably removed for data protection, which is a shame as it probably would’ve had more value. It could still be worth something though. As user reukiodo pointed out, this unit was the demo used by Hyperdrive to showcase the internals.I wouldn't get TOO excited over this being worth big bucks, although you may pleasantly be surprised(and I may be also).
This is a 3rd party cut-away and it's interesting for that, but it's also a bit of a mis-match of parts. The rear bucket claims 512K, while the front is from a Macintosh Plus, so you already have a parts mis-match there. It actually looks to have a Plus logic board, since it has SCSI and min-DIN serial ports(the 128K/512K lacked these and had DB-9 serial ports).
More importantly, the Hyperdrive upgrade is very interesting, and is something I personally would pay a decent amount of money for. The problem is that the subject computer doesn't HAVE a Hyperdrive.
So, essentially, this is a Hyperdrive rear bucket attached to a Mac Plus. The fact that it was made by a recognized 3rd party Mac vendor MIGHT add some value. At the end of the day, though, aside from the silk screening on the side, anyone with a milling machine could cut out a compact bucket and put plexiglass panels in it(which is essentially what Hyperdrive did here).
This MIGHT be worth 2-3x a standard Plus, but I seriously doubt more. I'd be pleasantly surprised to be proven wrong.
Perhaps @MacTech68 can weigh in on this also

I definitely agree with this and I think eBay is the only place where it would sell. I would potentially start the auction at $900 to attract more attention, but it’s up to you.However, since I doubt too many cut-away/demo units were built, this might get a collector with a spare hyperdrive chassis quite excited. The trouble is getting it seen by such a collector.
eBay is probably your best bet, and if it were me, I'd be starting at USD1000 for it (shipping NOT included) NOT as a 'Buy-It-Now' and see where it goes.
BUT - that's just one opinion.
The Hyperdrive 2000 was announced at the 1986 MacWorld Expo. Appears to be aimed at MacPlus owners.
20MB Hard Disk,
12Mhz CPU upgrade (GCC performs the CPU swap on the motherboard) or maybe a killy-clip
A few parts missing. Would be interesting to see if the CPU has been 'upgraded' on the existing motherboard.
