You can put a VAX4000 in a BA440 on a desktop. If the desk can take the
weight, it would be possible to put a 11/750 on it. ;-)

Look at EPay. I am sure there will show up a nice VS4k60 (12VUPs) or
even VS4k90 (24 VUPs, IMHO).

Shame on you. ;-)
I know of some people that reused empty cabinet sized computer
enclosures. The VAX-Bar is the most famos. There is somebody in the
Netherlands, that puted a refrigerator in the enclosure of a dead SGI
Challenge. The same was made by some people at a german Sun office for
internal use...
