I don't think so.  It was an amalgam of two organs, to a scheme by Virgil Fox, subsequently enlarged under the advice of Fred Swann.

Hi
There was an article about the CC organ in "The Organ" magazine several years back - at that stage it was 2 4 manual pipe organs in effect.  I don;t know if anything was changed subsequently.

One comment I do remember is that it was impossible to get it all in tune at the same time, due to sun shining through the glass!

Every Blessing

I was in California for a time in 1980-81 and never heard the organ in tune except at 9pm!

A tuner's nightmare   :-\
