The Typewriter Database 1973 Montgomery Ward (Olivetti) Escort 55 Serial # 6997657 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ton Sison: 1973 Montgomery Ward (Olivetti) Escort 55 Serial # 6997657 Snappy and stable like most Olivetti typewriters, the Montgomery Ward Escort 55 is a success story of aesthetics and engineering. The latter is due to the fact that it's actually a Lettera 32 with a new plastic body. Unlike other plastic typewriters, the Escort 55 is not rattly at all; it's a surprisingly solid typer. What's more, it's got sleek mod lines matched by a fetching yellow color. The case is a design statement in itself.

This one's a keeper, I had it since August 2012.
