Your chances are excellent, depending on your budget. I have two ‘8e’s, a straight 8, and a vt270. Each has issues: the 270 won’t boot, nor will the 8e’s (they have 8” floppies either rx02 or rx01’s, vt100/ 101’s, asr 33,35, and 32’s), and the straight 8 comes up with all zeros every eighth memory address location. The asr33 is DEC modified..

Best regards,
