Anyone have suitable local knowledge about this, which has the appearance of a third-party wedge-style case for the C64, proudly stickered with a South Australia list of credits:
- Micro Accessories of SA
- Adelaide Injection Moulders
- Peter Barker Tooling
I see speculation that a computers-in-education contract would have provided the volume and the funding to make injection moulding worthwhile.

It’s quite likely that this was a way to make the school contract % requirements to try and sell the units into State schools.
Microbee was manufactured and designed in Australia which gave it a leg up.
Apple developed the RAM expansion and PAL card and manufactured in Wangaratta
Maybe this was commodores way to do the same
I have one (And I’m in NZ)
AU didn’t get the C64c a while after it was released in other parts so a company came along and created the case to sell for people to transplant their breadbins motherboards into.
I’ve included an image comparing to a c64c Case.
Thanks for the additional information!
