Default Really old computer

I found an old computer on a Finnish auction site today. It's described as a Unix-computer made by NCR in the late 70s/early 80s. It has A3-sized memory modules and a tape drive. It's size is 60x12x65 cm and it weighs 37 kg. No other information is available, but 5 photos of the machine is available at cs.helsinki.fi/u/mvvuorel/nixi/.

Can I run Open/Net/FreeBSD on this machine? I'm pretty sure I could get it for 1€, and it would be fun to try something other than x86 and x86-64.
