Default Vintage Ingersoll Rand Data Plate

Signed a lease on a 30x55 shop (will post a thread on it soon). One of the reasons I picked the place was that it included an old, large, working IR air compressor. Looks to be about 80gallons, with a ginormous, ancient looking 3phase motor. Other than that, I don't know anything about it.

Is it possible to tell when it was built by looking at this data plate?

How about a picture of the rest of the compressor?

Yeah, that might help...

The compressor is in a small shed that was built around it, so I couldn't get a good shot of the entire thing...

Pump:


Motor: (it's hard to tell from this pic, but the motor has a diameter of at least 18"s...it's huge)
