The problem with the original EPROM ( Intersil IM6654 ) is not the Vcc ( 10
Volts, 5 Volts to program ) but that it needs a - 40 VDC to program it.

I have one 1802D in a ceramic package. ISTR it will push to 10V
(which is required to take it much above 1MHz).

You don't have to program a CMOS EPROM at 10V Vcc to use it at 10V
Vcc. It's not 10V *only*, it should take any voltage in a wide range
(the exact min and max Vcc depends on exactly what family the part is
from, but 3V-15V is common).
Why wouldn't a 27C64 work? (admittedly, I don't have the data sheet
in front of me). You'd have to make a pin swabber for the destination
machine, but electrically, it's a "C" part, not an "HCT", so I'd
expect it to work at 10V, but the datasheet will say for sure.
