  I just came across some literature about the organ that was in "Pipes & Pizza" in Reseda, Ca. when I was a kid and it said that the original organ was a Style 215 and I was wondering if anyone knows how it varied from the 216? One thing I read said that the 215 had a Kinura instead of the Post Horn but were there other differences too?  Thanks, Jeff

The substitution of the Post Horn for the Kinura is the extent of pipe changes. The big difference is in the stops and in the addition of couplers. Peter Beame's on-line Wurlitzer Opus List has the specifications for the Style 215 and the Style 216 for comparison.
