Item specifics

Country of Manufacture: Unknown  
 For sale is a 99% complete VAX 11/780. Looks like I will be moving out of state and I have to liquidate the larger pieces of my collection. No missing boards. It has the floating point option, 1 meg of memory(this is an early model), two Unibus interfaces and one Massbus all complete. I pulled the 11/03 out to repair the power supply so it now runs and attempts to boot from the RX01. That is as far as I got with getting it running. The expansion cabinet has two Unibus BA11 box's. One is full of serial cards and the other houses a UDA50. Also included is a complete TU78 tape Drive.  I also have a pair of RA81 drives in a lowboy DEC rack and a DEC Line Printer that goes with it. Pickup only in the Buffalo NY area. Sold as-is.

On Jul-01-13 at 15:19:51 PDT, seller added the following information:

I have had a few questions about power for this. You do not need 3 phase power to run it. The power controller runs on 3 phase but just for load balancing. Each individual power supply can be plugged into the wall. I was told by someone who worked on these that a system running in a minimal config could be powered on a single 30 amp breaker.

On Jul-01-13 at 17:37:10 PDT, seller added the following information:

If your the winner, bring a big truck. You also get the new Control Data 9747 and I advertised recently on Ebay and also a fair condition but very fixable DECwriter 3 just missing some keys and its very dirty. The garage needs to be cleaned and I don't have time to mess with separate auctions.
