A3000s are *extremely* rare, and I just watched one go for over #500. I had
been vaguely watching this A4000 on eBay as I probably have enough spare parts
to get it running, but the current price for a dead unit (plus the cost and
inconvenience of going to Coventry in person) now seems a bit much:

I have an A4000/040 plus another unit that's been part-stripped -- the A3640
CPU board is still present if you're after one of those -- but it's been rather
a while since I did anything with them and I have no idea if there's a working
machine between them.

You will probably find it much easier to obtain an A1200 with 68030 and/or SCSI
controller, as many more of those were sold than A3000s.
