Nothing says Italian-American quite like a re-branded Olivetti Lettera 22 especially for Sears. Like the Arrow is to the Quiet DeLuxe, the Chieftain is to the Lettera 22 - the same exact typewriter minus the tabulator. I'm a huge proponent of the crinkle paint job here - a departure from the Letteras - which is reminiscent of spicy brown mustard.

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Tower Chieftain on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Tower Serial Number page and the Tower Chieftain By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
