>> It's a CM-2.  The problem with most CM-2s - aside not working in 2019 - is most were never fully populated with card cages in all 8 hyper-cubes.  That particular machine only has card cages in 2 of the hyper-cubes.  The other 6 are empty.  I'm not sure a machine with max 64K processors was ever actually sold to a real customer.
