    I have a friend whose church pipe organ was "enhanced " by Allen. It might have been a Wicks. It can do all those things that this one does. This was done about 10 12 years ago. The kept the same console also.

    I had looked at the listing before. To me, it was way overpriced. But I'm no expert. And how long has it sat without being played?

    Blowing up the pic it appears the box has a floppy slot.

    Since they say it "plays by itself" I guess that box is a Smart Recorder

    Goodness only knows what that is! They've been trying to sell it for a very long time. The price is quite a bit too high for a stock MDS-6, which is a fairly low-end two-channel model. But there are so many questions -- why does the tag say "M.P. Moller by Allen?" Allen of course bought out Moller some years ago and used that tag briefly to designate, I think, certain hybrid/custom installations. And why is it enclosed in what looks like a big old salvaged pipe organ console? The tabs and other controls do look like they came from an MDS-6, but that's certainly not the console it comes in.

    There's a box on top that could be either a Smart Recorder (floppy disk based sequencer) or a MIDI expander box. Can't tell whether there are internal speakers or not, and no mention of any externals. Or if it really is a "Moller" job by Allen, are there pipes involved? More info would be nice. I suspect the sellers are quite unaware of what it is, especially given that the church bought the building but has no need for the organ (and all that drum stuff tells that story).
