1963 Imperial 66 Serial # 6G23425 1963 Imperial 66 typewriter, Serial # 6G23425 Nick Clowes's 1963 Imperial 66 typewriter. 2020-05-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Nick Clowes: 1963 Imperial 66 Serial # 6G23425 My first machine. Given by my aunt who worked for the UK Inland Revenue service. I call this thing 'The old Imperial machine gun' on account of the machine gun like impact of the keys on the platen. It feels unlike anything else I own, clunky but solid. Has some unusual features as well. You have to disconnect the drawband before you can remove the carriage. It's a good machine but quirky.
