Looks like it could be a Yamaha P22.

Can't you ask the seller? The model number is usually next to the serial number on a Yamaha.

With that serial number, it's from about 1970. It appears to be a studio size, approx. 45" tall. With the top having the hinge in the middle all the way across, I'm guessing it's a model P2.

Yeah, and that's the color they were, too -- more often than black.

Those can be really nice pianos. That might be a great little find unless is in horrible shape.

Most likely problem will be broken (or breaking) spring cords. Could have loose tuning pins too, but then again it's Missouri so...

They are nice when in good shape. Just remember, there's always a reason they are free or cheap.

The important thing going into a "free" piano -- even when it is truly a good deal -- is to realize that you will be spending money. It's just whether the cost of repairs will be less than the cost of getting something from a good-reputation dealer.
As others have said, it very well could be a "good deal". But "free" doesn't mean "not spending money".

I would say, as long as the tuning pin block, soundboard and bridges, strings (for corrosion) all check out ok, it would certainly be worth putting some money into it to give it a quick "reconditioning". Yamaha P22 were workhorses. All the schools tend to use them for this very reason. Good tone, good life-span. Ugly color LOL
