Sighted at a local community arts space. This is a display typewriter. The typebars do not rise for typing. The typebar raising lever is stuck. Could it be a victim of WD-40 syndrome?
Made by Remington for Sears Roebuck.
Beautiful light/dark "Orchid" color.
Serial number is located on the base under carriage on the right.
Hunter: Mary Echevarria (Mech)
Status: Typewriter Hunter
I'm a novice collector with a very small collection of mostly nonfunctional typewriters. I enjoy tinkering and repairs, so I am slowly but surely putting these typewriters back into service.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Remington Porto-Rite on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Remington Serial Number page and the Remington Porto-Rite By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
