A nice example of SF DeLuxe from the mid-sixties.
The typewriter was in order, and needed only a nice cleaning and overhaul, as well as of course a thorough lubrication.
The mechanics are in perfect working order, and apart from a few small scratch, the bodywork also seems almost new.
The bag is still in good condition.

Interested in historic motoring and vintage cars, I received a typewriter as a bonus when I bought and old off-road car. The previous owner had found somewhere a typewriter produced for the German army and when he sold me the car he gave me the typewriter too. As I learned later, it was a1961 Olympia SM7 Robust..
Of the typewriters I value more character than perfection, the signs that time has left and the stories - or fragments of stories - of those who used them ...
