This machine is a re-branded Smith-Corona Skyriter.
The case was so nasty I had to throw it away. The typewriter needs a bath, and I'll probably repaint it, too.

I've been collecting typewriters since 2010. I currently have 100+ machines in my possession. A little over half of them reside in my "personal" collection, while the rest are machines I intend to clean up for sale, or are long-term restoration projects (I'm looking at you, Olivers and Foxes!).
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Tower Chieftain II on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Tower Serial Number page and the Tower Chieftain II By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
