1958 Smith Corona Skyriter

Serial #3Y 15168

Had this flown over from the United States, as these machines are pretty rare here in continental Europe.
When it arrived, the carriage was loose, the spools wouldn't turn, and a whole bunch of other things.
After a while, and alot of effort, I was able to get it working. I still have some issues with vertical alignment, but overall it's in working shape.

I know many people find these things a bit bland in design, but I love the appearance. It looks so typical American 50's.

Sold due to I lost interest in it. Great to look at, but not so great to type on, in my opinion

I love to read literature, and was very curious as to how the authors I love the most, physically wrote their novels. That got me into typewriters.
