I have a very unusual machine which deserves a home other than the trash

I can't remember the model numbers. I can look them up.

It is an Industrial XT from IBM.
It has:
  10meg hard drive.
  full height 360k floppy drive.
  extra fan to suck air into the case.
  bar which clamps over the cards.
  400 watt power supply.
  8088 chip with 8087 and full ram.
  EGA monitor which is enclosed in a protective case
        includes a built-in fan to keep innards cool.

This is fully working and comes with the classic magnesium keyboard.

At my parent's house I also have a boxed set of IBM DOS 1.1 including
the original disks and manual.

I'm getting married soon and "gotta get rid of the computer soon."

I hope this computer will be a good addition to your museum.
