1967 Smith Corona Corsair DeLuxe Serial # 6YC 280275 1967 Smith Corona Corsair DeLuxe typewriter, Serial # 6YC 280275 Robert Clendaniel's 1967 Smith Corona Corsair DeLuxe typewriter. 2020-04-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Robert Clendaniel: 1967 Smith Corona Corsair DeLuxe Serial # 6YC 280275 This is a nice little typer that I bought at a consignment auction, probably for too much money, but I fell in love with the cool retro look with its sleek and integral case. It was in excellent condition, except it was missing the paper release knob, so I made a new one for it. Now it looks and works great! I hope to get it back into circulation soon!

I'm an architect by day and an incorrigible tinkerer by night. I prowl thrift stores, auctions, and antique shops looking for old mechanical things to fix up. My entry drugs were fountain pens and wind-up tin toys, but before long I had gone to the harder stuff - watches and clocks. Finally, I broke down and decided to try "just one" typewriter - a 1948 Royal KMM. I told myself I wouldn't do any more until I got rid of it, but didn't know you could get hooked so easily. Fourteen typewriters later, I still have the KMM, and am still looking for that next fix. I'm expecting an intervention from the family soon.
