The Computer History Museum has a PDP-1. It has been
underdoing restoration, and I saw the CPU running
diagnostics at an event there last Saturday. The
museum actually has three PDP-1s, including the
prototype and another that is "on tour". As far as
I know, these are the only PDP-1s known to exist.
A member of the restoration team said that only
50 were manufactured.
