No, I do not.  Just curious, what is the value in having a PAL C64, is
there a game or some program that is PAL only?  I converted both my PAL
C-116 and P500 to NTSC so I could use North American displays.  I have a
PAL VC-20 (German VIC-20's were renamed VC-20) that I have not converted.
I also had a PAL C128D motherboard.  It's not too tough of a project to
convert, but I assume you want the PAL experience for a specific reason.
