I can't offer any authoritative advice but I'll be listening for
inspirational tales.  I've got two Model 360 base units and a few
terminals in various states of not working.  I did once manage to get
two of the terminals to do some addition when attached to the base
unit.  Division was too much for it :)   I have one of the
punched-card readers but the 372 unit I have never seen.

These have to be among the oldest things in my collection also.  And
quite cool, too: core memory, microswitches and Nixies!
