Wurlitzer 105 on YouTube
By Jack M. Conway

Hi Group, I was pleased to find my Wurlitzer 105 on YouTube at  It has been viewed 1145
times, Wow!  It was recorded at the Los Rios Southern California
AMICA Band Organ Rally, May 3, 2008.  This video was made before
the case and façade were finished.  By the time of the AMICA 2008
convention the case was repaired, the rear doors were mounted, and
the façade completed with art panels.  I was lucky to find an artist
in Las Cruces, New Mexico, who had access to color photos of an
original Wurlitzer 105.  She painted the wood panels and the screen.
The pneumatic and mechanical restoration were 90% complete at the
time this video was made.

This is an original Wurlitzer 105 serial number 4159.  It was
shipped to Chicago, Illinois, on April 23, 1929 on order number 900.
