Help In Identifying Vintage Mamiya Camera

Hi! I am new here!
I have a Mamiya camera that I need help identifying. I believe it to be about 50 years old. It has no markings or Model number of any kind. I have searched all over the internet and cannot find it. The closest camera I can find to it seems to be the Mamiya Prismat PH. Can anyone please help?
Also, I have found a body # 4087692 on it.
Here are a few pictures:

Nice

Does it still work? Can you run a film through it? The results would be very interresting with modern film.

Regards

Steve

Re: Help In Identifying Vintage Mamiya Camera

Run a film through it it at your own risk.....it wil probably give better results than many digital cameras that are on the market to-day....apart from the tram lines!
