1969 Penncrest (SCM) Caravelle 12

Serial #P6L 110029

Am I a philistine for loving this typewriter marketed by JC Penney? There's something about its colors and that dazzling, car-like, shiny panel that just hypnotizes me.

This machine has a very solid body of cast aluminum. It has plenty of features typical of late Smith-Corona midsized typewriters.
