Thread: IBM 360 with additional era equipment

  1. #1

    Default IBM 360 with additional era equipment

    Greetings! My neighbor unfortunately just passed away and he was an amazing guy. He has an IBM 360 in his basement and I am trying to help his family sell it. Does anyone have any interest? I have attached pictures and the computer itself is in North Carolina. He has a disk drive also. Please let me know and God bless you!

    Looks like a Model 30 to me with a 2311 drive. Definitely a museum piece.

    I'm sure you'll get inquiries. S/360s aren't all that common in the wild.

    One party on your end of the country that might be interested is the Rhode Island Computer Museum - wouldn't hurt to drop them a line.

    A pretty rare event, seeing a new bit of 360 pieces like that. Hope it finds a good home.

    I apologize for the quality of the pictures and for the limited amount of information I have provided. I really didn't expect there to be so much interest. Our neighbors will be back in a couple of weeks and I will quantify the pieces, get good photos and get an idea of the documentation he had. There were a lot of manuals laying around, again I apologize that I didn't pay more attention. I have talked with the folks and they would like to sell it outright, not really donate it to a museum. It would help fix up the house that is a bit of a mess. Thanks again - please let me know if you have any questions in the mean time and i will be back here with more info in a couple of weeks. Thanks again everyone for your support and interest and God bless you all, Steve

    You better make a video of this if you pull through. Your youtube has been lacking for years.

    That control panel is the same as the 360 Model 30 control panel in the RICM connection, and the same as used in the AMC Mad Men show.

    wow! I too hope this ends up in a museum. My group Save the Machine (savethemachine.org) is located in western NC (Hickory, NC area) and would be interested if none of the larger museums are able to take it.
