Is this what they are worth now, it is nice, but not that nice.

As it is nothing more than a collectors piece now, in that condition, I'd say yes, it's worth it.
It's a lovely day

A mate used to drive one, I dont know if it was the Major or the Ford based tractor ones, but he said you could rip the bucket bottom out of the back hoe, they just would not stop digging. Much better than the JCB of the time.

That was amazingly ( :D ) orginal Kipper. Never can work out the Whitlock models, they seemed to build several at the same or similar era with different hoe and arm layouts, some with completely modified bonnets and like this with the standard tractor. The slew is crude on this one with the cable, similar to their earlier Dinkum model.
