Get your hands on my husband's organ (586)

You, reader, have a dirty, dirty mind. Shame on you. You're my kind of people. I'd really like to have this, but it's in another province and I have no room for such a thing.

My Husband's Organ
Price $399.00
Address Oakville, ON L6J 5L8, Canada

My Husband's Organ
I'm offering my husband's organ for sale. When he was younger, he couldn't keep his hands off it, but now is sits there gathering dust. Perhaps you could find a place for it in your home. When it was new, (back in the late 1950's), it was worth $1,200. In todays dollars that would come to $9,696, but I'm willing to let it go for $399 (or best offer). It is in working condition. You can turn it on by placing your fingers on a special place under the keyboard and pressing gently.
We've had fun with it over the years, but it's time for someone else to play with it. It comes with a bench full of organ music books and an instruction manual.
Here is some background info I copied from the net:
The M3 was introduced in 1949 and was the first of its kind in the world. Sales of the ‘Cinderella’, as it was then called, exceeded all expectations, out selling the popular concert and church models. Even six years after its introduction, spinet customers were happy to make a 50% down payment on this "Baby B" with no promise of a delivery date!
This is a used Hammond M-3 tonewheel organ. It works perfectly and has a big, powerful sound. Anyone familiar with all genres of music for the last 60 years or so knows that Hammond tonewheel organs are a part of every type of music. It has a rich sound that is often imitated and never duplicated. This one also benefits from built-in speakers and amp, making it less bulky to keep around. It has shorter manuals than the famous B-3, but the drawbar functions and keyboard feel are here. The action of this keyboard is still good as well.
For videos go to and type hammond m3 organ in the search window.
This item is available for local pickup in Oakville, ON. Though it is only about the size of a spinet piano,
it weighs 250 pounds and would require a truck/van/SUV and a couple of strong men to handle it.
