Hmm, sounds like it's been processed with echo, sometimes fed thru some leslie speaker - perhaps a bit compression added. At that time they used to put nearly everything through guitar amps, so that could be it.

Actually, there are at least a dozen ways to make something sound like this or that, it's not necessary _the_ tools or one particular thing. And even though two engineers had same tools and effects and preamps (and so forth), the differences would be huge when compared.
