I have been considering parting out a complete Atari Quantum. I really
didn't want to do this, but after a lot of thinking and reasoning....I
came to this conclusion. If parting out my one complete Atari Quantum
will in return finish two or three Quantums, than it would be worth the
sacrifice. I will not even consider parting out the machine if I can't
sell all the parts. I need to know that at least two complete
Quantum's will come out of this deal to justify me braking up my
machine. In any case, if anyone is looking for specific parts to
complete a Quantum project, please email what you need and what you are
willing to pay for the part or parts. The monitor is an Amplfone, and
all the parts are working 100%. I can send pics of the cab, parts,
etc. I feel horrible parting out such a rare machine, but as someone
on the group pointed out...I have asked a price of $2,500 for the game
(which to me is not out of the ball park) and have not come to a sale
yet. I have a child on the way, and I am needing the room. I am firm
on the price for the complete machine, and am only expressing the idea
of parting out the game. I love this hobby, and know that finding some
of these parts is hard...if not impossible. Please email
"rabus@insightbb.com" if you are interested in my game or a specific
part.

Thanks,

Jon

Personally having sold 5 Quantums (yup 5) I dont think you could
quickly sell the parts off for $2500 or more. The board will bring the
most and the cp and harness would be in demand too. The Amp has great
value but its really not in high demand imo. If it is Ive got one
rebuilt Id sell.

The market has cooled dramatically for most games, Q included. However
there does exist potential buyers at $2500. Youll need to get lucky or
to hunt them down.

Everytime I sold a rare game I liked I always wondered when I would own
it again. Ive been pretty lucky on several titles. There are a few Q's
out there for sale so youll be competing with those too.

I guess it all boils down to had bad you need the money and how
quickly. I wish you all the best with your child

Peace

And with the money you make from parting out your Quantum, you can buy
the two Quantums that are completed with your parts. Cool!

I would really liketo buy a working amplifone HV unit and deflection
board. My Star Wars could really use it.

Thanks!
