I just saw this thread. When I saw "weighs 900 pounds" I started thinking 60s desktop computer. Not that it would have been my guess.

According to the CPI inflation calculator, $30,000 in 1963 is now equal to $232,369.61

It would be interesting to see that in the '63 Christmas catalog.
100# a foot for 900# seems unrealistic.

But all that gear needs it's own power plant, and even miniature nuclear plants are heavy.

I would imagine it having multiple power supply chassis. Not to mention how many tubes the thing used. It also has another included feature, a space heater.
