Purchased from piano retailer (only sold new pianos)

Thanks for the information. Wurlitzer was not in business much longer after that, though the name continued to be used by other companies who bought the rights. Their pianos were pretty average in quality and were usually on the lower end of pricing. At 41" tall you have a console sized piano. These smaller uprights work well in home use rather than larger rooms or studios. Considering the age of the piano, the size, maker, described condition and used piano market, I would recommend a selling range today of approximately $1,450-$1,800 AUD. Best wishes!
