French Victor Gonzalez home Pipe organ for sale

Marcus Perrot writes:
Let me introduce myself. I am the son of Jean Perrot, musicologist and organist, who recently passed away.

In 1948, my father asked the manufacturer Victor Gonzalez to build a home pipe organ. My father was a friend of André Marchal who participated to the specification of the organ to fit the neo-classical aesthetics initiated by André Marchal, Norbert Dufourcq and Victor Gonzalez.
Victor Gonzalez built this organ starting from a Mutin organ and resized, enhanced and transformed to the new specifications and location.
There are parts from Mutin and Cavaillé Coll inside reused by Gonzalez.

I contact you because this organ is currently for sale. While we are trying to find an institution or an individual in France for purchasing this organ, we are also considering the international.
Could you let me know whether there is a way or opportunities to sell this organ outside of France ?

For those who would be interested in getting more information about this organ, its history, stop list, manufacturer, neoclassic school, etc. I have created a web site.
Note that the instrument is still available.

A lovely organ - I wish I had the space for it.  Out of interest, how much is the owner asking for it?
