1964 Olivetti Lettera 32 Serial # 2113600 1964 Olivetti Lettera 32 typewriter, Serial # 2113600 Gustavo Rieder's 1964 Olivetti Lettera 32 typewriter. 2022-11-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gustavo Rieder: 1964 Olivetti Lettera 32 Serial # 2113600 I suspect this is a "Frankenstein" type model, as the chassis bears an early serial number, but its case denotes a later period. The first thing that attracts attention is the color, original from the factory, since it differs from "Rossa" catalog color, which is the closest thing to this rather 70's orange. There is also a difference in the faceplate with the brand, used in the 70s, and the lid does not have the bas relief isotype either. All this may be because it is a machine made in Mexico and assembled in Chile.
