Is that the one you wanted to run IRIX 6.2 on?

To accentuate the special identity of the IRIS 4D/70, Silicon Graphics' designers selected a new color palette. The machine's coating blends dark grey, raspberry and beige colors into a pleasing harmony. (IRIS 4D/70 Superworkstation Technical Report)

yeah, a little shocked myself. Parts are expensive, gotta stock up.

I do intend to get irix 6.2 installed once i can get the install media to cooperate.

The other crimson does apear partly functional, the io3 board throws errors at bootup, however one chanel still does function, might be able to get it running, or some kind of net boot setup again.
