(Not an Answer, but rather a way too long comment on the target) The reason: I'm interested in running statistical measures against a large library of code to find the distribution of variable names, constants and so forth in an effort to improve a BASIC parser. Using (very) old code to optimize a modern parser might be a less than good input - at least ...

Using "qbasic source archive" as a search turns up some potentially-useful links, including: 48 files found in Library "Basic/QBasic Programming" Also includes files to do with PowerBasic. From a brief scan, the files seem to be more utility orientated (i.e. extending Quick/Power-basic) than pure source examples. 134 files found in Library "Basic And ...

Probably the most modern BASIC available for the 6502 - though it requires a 65C02 - is Acorn's BBC BASIC IV as released for the BBC Master. It can be ported to other 65C02-based hardware by implementing a few of the MOS API entry points it relies on, and dummying out the rest; several people have done so for home-built SBCs. The standard version occupies ...
