Acquired from an Albuquerque thrift store. Replaced the shredded power cord with an extension cord. Recently replaced a drive belt with a new-old-stock silicon VCR belt. The drive spindle and type bar linkages are very sensitive to debris. Very fast typer. Wonderful appearance with turquoise textured paint and red trim. Currently sporting a blue nylon ribbon. Came with a fat (electric model compatible) holiday-style carrying case.
