196X Torpedo 18 Serial # 1206732 196X Torpedo 18 typewriter, Serial # 1206732 Mark Petersen's 196X Torpedo 18 typewriter. 2014-01-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 196X Torpedo 18 Serial # 1206732 This machine was acquired as part of a bulk deal in which three machines were bought for $10 each and a total of $60 shipping, so pretty good deal for a Torpedo. I have wanted one for a long time as this machine has quite a reputation among the typosphere. It does indeed live up to all expectations. Mine is is not in perfect shape, but it is in good shape and it types like a dream. Maybe someday I will get an even nicer one without a wide carriage. I love the two tone paint.
