Updated through online information from Ron Yeater.
This is an example of the small-organ specification commissioned by the Lutheran Church in America for its mission churches as an alternative to an electronic instrument. It was not a great success and was abandoned after only a relatively small number were built. I remember them going through the Wicks factory in batches of 5 or 10 at a time!
