1958 Smith Corona Electric Portable

Serial #5TE138655

I originally said no to this one because it was totally non-functioning, and I was told it had a bad clutch, and I had no idea how hard that would be to replace.

The $40 price tag we a huge deterrent as well, but the guy came down to $20 and my husband talked me into it. A couple hours after getting it home, my husband had it up and running. Turns out everything is fine, just really dirty. I'm happy :-)

I have raised five sons to adulthood, and yet, I can't keep potted plants alive more than a month. My husband and I spend way too much time together, but that's okay.
