1965 Facit TP1

Serial #P378384

This Facit portable is as comforting as eating Swedish meatballs while listening to ABBA in your Volvo. It's groooovy baby!

Something worth noting is that this machine does not have a tabulator, a feature that earlier TP1 models I've seen all seem to have. I've yet to dive into the Facit story, and consequently I don't know when the TP2 was introduced, so I wonder if both models coexisted for a while and with the introduction of the TP2, the TP1 was no longer produced with a tabulator and relegated to the role of a more basic model? Or was it that a tabulator was an option for the TP1 during its production run? Anyone have concrete information on this?
