Refurbished for a customer. Originally tan, then was replainted olive green, I stripped the paint and then painted it IBM Classic Blue.
Completely refurbished with chemical wash, necessary parts replacement, synthetic lubrication, new noise-absorbing foam and all adjustments checked and corrected.
Apparently originally sold in Canada, it had a dead-key feature that has been disabled to use normal US elements. The arrows on the function keys are for non-US markets.
A very early model with Gear Tilt, Wear Compensator Rotate Arm, Brass Tilt Pulleys and First Design Tab Cord Pulley Tensioner.

I love mechanical things and have tinkered with manual and electric typewriters since my teens. I have always been fascinated by the IBM Selectric, but it was later in life that I finally got my hands on one to explore. I learned to repair/restore them and suddenly I have several of them. I don't really consider myself a collector, but rather a restorer. I enjoy bringing old machines back to usable condition and then pass them on to other people to use and enjoy.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the IBM Selectric I on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the IBM Serial Number page and the IBM Selectric I By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
