Electro-pneumatic action
2 manuals, 19 stops, 9 ranks


The Memorandum of Agreement (Aug. 25, 1944) between M. P. Möller and First Baptist Church of Far Rockaway, states that Möller agreed to build a new organ for a consideration of $6,605 plus 10% Federal Excise Tax. The organ would be played from a detached two-manual stop-key console that was to be finished to an approved sample. No casing or decorations were provided. The entire organ was voiced on 4" wind pressure. Möller indicated that the organ would be erected and "ready for use at as early a date as the present war emergency will permit, subject to other delays beyond its control." The fate of this organ is unknown.
