KX Motor Drive Camera, Special version: According to some literature there was a special version of the KX made to accept a databack and with the base modified to accept a motor or winder. One source suggests this motor-capable body never hit the market, at least not in great quantities. Another reliable source says the camera never had a motordrive or winder option. Some Pentax literature shows the KX Motor Drive camera with the same motor system that will also fit the ESII and Spotmatic F. Three different sources, three different sets of facts. However, KEH records indicate that it has had the KX and motor drive in stock in the past.
