My Sun 2/120 is such an example:

8000 :- swedish crowns and
4000:- for a CDC 300 MB WREN disk from the US (this in early 1991.)

so lets say 1500 US $

The disk didn't work because it is embedded SCSI but SunOS 2 (and 3) is
basically only SMD and MFM (or ESDI) thru a disk controller.

The machine is still very complete :
full amount of RAM (4 MB)
QIC tape with controller
smd card
original SUn screen
