Your quite right Jeremy, the 160 does look the part.
I never owned one. I did do some repairs on one for Priestmans though. It belonged to someone out Eavesham way.
They had a Rexroth hydraulic system and a Ford engine, (380 I think), Priestmans own fitters thought they were the best in the range at the time.
For the record the other Priestman in your pic. is a 220. If you zoom in on the crowd linkage you can see the bucket ram has its own attatchment which is separate from the tipping link pin.
That can be seen in the pic of my 220 below too.
