I have a Intel Pentium 60 CPU which appears to fit a Socket 4 motherboard.
Is such a motherboard available or will it fit any other motherboard?

Socket 4 is the original Pentium specification. Such CPU's generally run quite hot and since new socket 7 ones are quite and very fast it is best just to use the new ones. A socket 4 CPU should run in any newer socket based motherboard.
Socket 4 motherboards are available, although hard to come by, but I would suggest that you rather get a new socket 7 motherbaord that way you can upgrade later to a better CPU.

From the size of the Pentium 60 chip I own, it does not appear it will fit in a Socket 7, but I will have such a motherboard for some other work and will test it. It has one of those large deep heat sinks attached to it and probably would need a fan, too.
