There is actually very little similarity between the 160 and the 6000 series PPs.  The instruction set is vaguely alike, but that's about it.

PPs have NO front panel.  Nor does the rest of the system.  There's only the deadstart panel (a 12 word boot "rom") and the operator display (a peripheral controlled by one of the PPs).
