It would be interesting to see scheme implemented in hardware, complete with primitives intended to be wired to low-level pointer manipulation functions. Further, it would be interesting to see someone seasoned in low-level C sit down with a copy of Lion's Unix Commentary and the NetBSD sources and attempt to implement a minimal Unix atop the scheme hardware using only said hardware's scheme dialect ("SysScheme"?).

So, lisp machines of the 80s?

No, scheme machines of the 10s.
