The Hasselblad Project - Part 4.

I only needed to purchase a view finder to complete my Hasselblad, but I ended up buying yet another camera body and A-12 film back because the price was so good.

The 500 C pictured was the precursor model to the 500 CM, however the only difference I can see is that the glass viewing screen is not easily removed on the 500 C.  The camera also included a film advance crank and a waist level finder - the only piece I really needed!

The body is in excellent cosmetic condition with no issues with the auxiliary shutter closing fully when the shutter is fired.  The serial numbers on A-12 housing and insert are not matching, but it is not a big deal as I will probably just keep this one as a back up.

Well, that's it for the Hasselblad Project.  Now all I need to do is find some time to go out and test the camera.
