It is missing the slant hood for the front.
The value depends on what attachments come with it. I see it has the front rotary mower and the dual wheels.

The serial should be on the left side of the advance casting. (the nose)
The dual wheel spacers are worth $75-$100. It's hard to tell, but the inner tires look to be solid rubber. If so another $50-$75.
It has a newer style mower. $50-$75.
A good clean carb is worth $25-$50.

and there is a link to the serial number chart. From the location of the serial tag, and the location and type of the air filter, I would tentatively say it is a Model C. Is the forward/reverse lever use the same bolt on the handlebar as the High/Low lever? I can't tell from the pictures. Model C's were produced starting around 1966 until Gravely retired the Gravely engine in 1976.
From a user's standpoint, you should have the most refined engine Gravely ever made, with high pressure full flow oil filtration. If it matters, that engine SHOULD be rated at 7.6 horse power, compared to the previous model's 6.6 hp and the very first model's 5 hp. These differences rarely seem to matter in practical daily use.
Price wise, I'd start around 400, but it all depends.

The correct hood for a Model C is the full curved one that covers the gas tank. This is a picture of my C-8. Note the position of the air cleaner, also note how the two levers on the right handlebar are staggered and not using the same bolt. It is an 8 speed because there is a third handle mounted on the right handlebar down by the gas tank, but it can't be seen in this picture.
