Depends on the level of restoration vs what you plan to do with it. "Level of restoration" includes whether the mechanical systems (ie the hydro system) was restored to good shape. I have never had a hydro so I can't comment further!

Welcome to the club.

Everyone here has there favorite style of these tractors & there expertise on certain models.  I personally have never had one of these Vickers hydrostatic units.  But from what I hear, if you have one that has had the notorious leaking pintle shaft repaired correctly by boring & bushing, then I hear they are the greatest by being butter smooth as opposed to the later Sundstrand units.

Like Tom said above, it depends on the level of restoration.  a Dupont overhaul with new paint & stickers is not a restoration.  Has the hydro been taken care of?, has the engine been at the very least evaluated to determine the bore is within the specs in the manual.  Crankshaft journal measured & checked with plastiguage against the rod.  Piston, rings, hone, bore, valve guides & seats......Well, you get the idea...I think you may have more questions for the seller.

To answer your question.  If the engine was rebuilt & the hydro unit was corrected, then my opinion only is that it is worth the price.  You never get your time reimbursed for the work a lot of us put into these machines.  Based on that price, I doubt anything else was done besides a Dupont overhaul with stickers.  & I'll bet you will find plenty of bolts that were just painted over instead of being replaced with new.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
