1961 Torpedo 18b

Serial #1210430

1961 Torpedo 18b

This Model 18b is among the last with Torpedo keytops, carriage return lever, and metal ribbon cover. Soon afterwards, Remington, which owned Torpedo, switched the machine to Remington-style keytops and carriage return lever, and made the ribbon cover plastic. (See my Remington Torpedo.). Made in West Germany.

I have collected typewriters since the early 1970s. My first collectible machine was a Mignon, but I also had everyday typers then, first a Voss ST-24 and an Olivetti Praxis 48, and then a Hermes 3000 and a Hermes 10. Over the last decade or so, I've turned my focus from early machines (Lambert, Blickensderfer, Hammond, Smith-Premier, etc.) to portables.

Besides typewriters, I also am avid about Studebakers, and have had a 1964 Studebaker GT Hawk since 1979.
