1957 Smith Corona Skyriter Serial # 3Y 100270 1957 Smith Corona Skyriter typewriter, Serial # 3Y 100270 Dalton Hutchins's 1957 Smith Corona Skyriter typewriter. 2021-08-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Dalton Hutchins: 1957 Smith Corona Skyriter Serial # 3Y 100270 This Skyriter didn't have much to tinker with. PB Blaster helped free up the typebars. Replaced the felt and had to make an slight adjustment to get the bell to ring. One thing that wouldn't clean up was the rust on the lid. I had been waiting for a typewriter to try and paint, and this one seemed like the right candidate. I'm a sucker for the vintage Powder Blue, but a Flat Black felt a little safer.
