Yes, I can't get at it right now but I picked up an XT/370 a few years ago at a
radio rally.

Unfortunately the machine had been fairly comprehensively rebuilt with a '286
motherboard and some sort of half height hard drive (despite having a full
height "IBM" hard drive front plate on the front).

I managed to get the original motherboard (broken expansion connector) and tape
streamer out of the guy, but the monitor, keyboard, cards, etc were already
gone.... :-(
