The Typewriter Database 197X Olivetti Lettera 35i Serial # 8086901 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 197X Olivetti Lettera 35i Serial # 8086901 Not a bad typer at all, I really like the shell style and the action is not terrible. However, I wanted to hot rod my Lettera 32, so I removed the power plant of this 35l and dropped in the sleeker, sexier L32 powerplant. I still have the guts, which will probably end up being picked over for parts.

Update: I ended up fixing what few things were wrong with this 35l engine (mainly some bendy work on the right carriage release - I don't recall there being much else wrong), and transplanting it into the shell of a busted Lettera 25, thus making my second "TwOlivetti" mashup. It's off getting sold now, so soon, somewhere in this world someone's going to enjoy a very upgraded Lettera 25 :D
