This package was released in 1978 and has been well preserved in it's box. The console, paddles and joysticks show minimal use; hard to believe but it's true. The contents are very clean and most are original to the set except the joysticks. The joysticks are in mint shape but not CX-10, they are CX-40, but the paddles are original "Heavy Sixer" with the Atari Logo.
This comes complete in the original box with the owner's manual and more. The box insert included is homemade and not original. It is fairly precise and fits snug in the box. Did you miss out on buying one of these in the 80's. Don't worry, here's your chance. Atari Inc. celebrated the 30th anniversary in 2007.
VALUE WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE !!!
6 Switch Models were limited and only produced for about 3 years, compared to the more common 4 Switch models. This particular Heavy Sixer was produced in 1978 and all true Heavies were ONLY produced in 1977 or 78.
CONSOLE HAS BEEN TESTED & WORKS GREAT.
All games included are 1977, 78 release titles only.
Joysticks work great with superb response. The paddles are tested and working, but may have a jittery response at times.
All items function Great and were tested.
All contents original, clean and presentable.
The system box shows some handling and age wear. The box is tape closed at one end and missing the main flap at the opened end. Still a great collectible item for 33 years old. 1978 was the 2nd and final year of the release of the Original Heavy Sixer consoles.
