My other VME, Multibus, and STDbus cards are on pages linked at this page.
In April 2004 I picked up some Sun 2 Multibus cards. Condition unknown but physically OK, dates 1982-1984. Here's the list, with links to images.

Also with this set, a VMEbus card, Sun 3 SCSI card, Piiceon or Diceon 3A, 270-1236-02 rev A, NOT Mulitbus.
Some time in 2004 I picked up a Sun Multibus-based system. I sold it in Jan 2006.
This is a 15 slot chassis in a black, rack-mount box. The front is only labled "Sun workstation" but the back is labled
Sun model 150U. From Sun hardware notes, it may be some kind of 2/170 system or model 100 system.
Here are the cards in it: dates are 1982, 1983. Weight of chassis and covers is about 60-65 lbs; it measures
17 X 17 inches, and about 20 inches deep. The Multibus cards mount vertically and their tops face the "front".
The back has numerous connectors and the nameplate.

Here is the back of the chassis. This is the lable there.
Here is the front cover of the chassis. The hole is for the AC circuit breaker.

In Aug 2004 I picked up a Sun 3/E VME based system. I sold it in early 2010. Here is a photo of the chassis. Sun sold a VME card set for a 68020 based Unix/Sun system. This is a 12 slot dual width chassis, power supply, with following 9 cards, pictured from left to right and listed below. (If there's interest, I'll post the pictures of the cards.)
