The front panel was not from a stock 360 / 30. It had been modified, most
likely by a leasing company stuck with the machine once the 370 line was available. It was not uncommon for leasing companies to modify the 360 machines to speed
them up or otherwise make them more ‘competitive’ with the 370s, hoping to convince someone to take the model 30 instead of a 370. Look near the upper right, where a segment of the panel was replaced with non-IBM circuitry. It appears that this model 30 was
configured with a much larger main memory than was possible from IBM. It may have had other changes to increase speed, but if they exist they aren’t hinted at by the lights and switches on this panel. I suspect the machine was converted to monolithic memory.
I suspect that collectors wouldn’t value a panel that wasn’t original as highly as they would if it had been stock. Matching the blank plate that was removed for this modification would be challenging – look at how the color and surface
texture differences stand out between the metal in the add-on plate and the other parts of the console panel.
