1955 Groma Kolibri Serial # 553 753 1955 Groma Kolibri typewriter, Serial # 553 753 Kristian Faulkenberry's 1955 Groma Kolibri typewriter. 2020-06-05 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Kristian Faulkenberry: 1955 Groma Kolibri Serial # 553 753 Beautiful little olive green Kolibri. Paint looks good with just a few chips. Unfortunately, it was dropped at some point so the frame is bent enough that the space bar doesn't depress. Hopefully I can find a way to bend the frame back to original shape without cracking it. Needs a good cleaning but otherwise very happy with my purchase!
