C64 and C64c keyboards compatible?

Recommended Posts

Yes. The only thing you might notice is that the cable length is a bit on the short side, or that the way you mount the keyboard into the case differs. The C64C came in at least two variants with different mounting. Electrically they're identical, so are VIC-20 keyboards for that matter.

Actually if you burn your own Editor ROM on a PET/CBM 8032-SK or something similar in the range of PET/CBM computers, you can use a C64 keyboard mechanism on that too. Some keys will be missing, in particular numeric keyboard, but the design isn't that much different. See Steve Gray's website if you ever would need that functionality.
