1963 Imperial Good Companion 6 Serial # 6AE284 1963 Imperial Good Companion 6 typewriter, Serial # 6AE284 Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters's 1963 Imperial Good Companion 6 typewriter. 2019-07-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters: 1963 Imperial Good Companion 6 Serial # 6AE284 For quite some time, Woodward's department stores branded and sold Imperial Good Companion typewriters. This is such an example and quite an unusual example as well, as it is a sylvester-esque black & white two tone. The flat, open type basket design which stemmed forth from the Torpedo original makes for an interesting typing experience on such a recent typewriter. However, the conservative appearance and deep-mounted carriage do not warrant this typewriter to be immediately written up as unpleasant. In fact, the desperation of the carriage-return lever, and the deep travel of the keys create the sensation of a bigger machine. A cat which wants to be a tiger. The funky mid-century design might be questioned by some, but I personally find it to represent a certain era in time that is very well depicted in the appearance of this Imperial.
