I may have a spare C160, if shipping turns out to be too much.  You know
where I work, so pick-up is easy.

Upgrade parts for Cxxx systems are reasonably easy to find.  Memory is
72-pin ECC on the C160, and 72-pin ECC/EDO on the C200.  Drives are
differential SCSI (or single-ended/LVD if you don't mind using the
slower storage bus).  Adapter cards will either be GSC or EISA, so
adding features might be a problem.

They can use PC monitors, but there's a passive adapter dongle you need
(that era HP workstation used EVC connectors instead of DVI).  Dell also
used the same part, so I might be able to source a spare for you
