1950 Everest 90 Serial # 172291 1950 Everest 90 typewriter, Serial # 172291 Laurenz van Gaalen's 1950 Everest 90 typewriter. 2022-07-14 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Laurenz van Gaalen: 1950 Everest 90 Serial # 172291 Looks better than it types.

This typewriter had a hard life. Parts of the frame and some keylevers are bent and one of the feet has been soldered back on. I suspect the loose carriage is responsible for the bad print quality.

The back panel of the typewriter is made of thick metal and used for mounting parts.

According to the user manual, the Everest 90 was available in 11 colors. Newspaper ads show the Everest 90 was priced just below Triumph's basic portable, the Durabel.
