Older Ariens Value

I was given an older non working 7 HP Ariens blower from likely the 70s. Unit looks to be in good shape for its age. Generally what do these go for when running and fairly clean?

Thanks guys, that gives me a good idea how much I really want to put into it. As far as the style of the unit. It looks fairly similar to this but a little cleaner, 7 Hp and no drift breakers.
