Someone has to save that! It's pretty much the same as the one about half a mile from me!

If I had to choose any old Jcb to restore it would be one of these! I just love them! Just look like they've got so much character!

One day I will own one!

paint looks good but it's got the wrong dipper arm on it and the front loader has a few plates welded to it so I reckon it's done it's fair share of work in it's time!
but still worth saving!

It has a remarkably good cab. As smith said it must have had some stick at some time and the ad reads with the steering shot. Could almost do with a second one with good arms and correct dipper.

Mines the same, with additional plates & welds here & there, done some hard work over the years.
Just in the process of putting original style lights & mirrors back onto it. not the easiest things to come by.

Not planning a full restore. yet! :)

That a very nice straight machine you have there, i think it was on Ebay a while back i remember watching it, the lights will eventually show up on ebay i always search tractor lights, tractor lamps butler lights etc, i reckon that it has to be one of the straightest non restored machines around, its lovely to see it and bring plenty of memories as a 5-6 year old climbing in and out and playing on them after the builders had gone home lol!
