That sounds like a it could be from a taller version of the H9645
cabinet that is shown on the front of the PDP-11 Systems & Options
Catalog July 1983

I have one of those cabinets that used to hold a PDP-11/44 (which I
regret selling to someone else on this list a dozen or so years ago).
On my cabinet the panel on the left is about 36 inches tall. It's also
beige, not brown, but it does have the hex key fastener at the top of
the panel.
