    That's quite an early model; the tripod mounting block is different than the c.1970 version that I used on the job.
    Later ones were metallic green and made of magnesium; the last version was painted black and made of aluminium.
    They are fine cameras...btw Cole Weston used one "in the field" for his color work.

    I must stress bellows condition is paramount, to OP.

    Few want to replace them. Expensive and a PITA.

    Buy excellent bellows, if possible.

    I once spent $1K for 3 new bellows for one camera.

    No regrets!

    Best thing I have done in LF for a while.

    i have one, the back has a bail? you lift to allow inserting the film holder.
    Oh and the back can be revolved for portrait or landscape.
    Picked up a plastic foot? locker at target it's big enough for the camera without lens or board and foam for protection, good enough to get it around in the car but cheap and not too sturdy.
    Like others have said nothing to take on a hike but solid.
    If i can help with anything else contact me.
