1970 Adler Electric 151c Serial # 7754658 1970 Adler Electric 151c typewriter, Serial # 7754658 Paolo Dal Chiele's 1970 Adler Electric 151c typewriter. 2023-01-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Paolo Dal Chiele: 1970 Adler Electric 151c Serial # 7754658 Update
The engine is seized, and therefore I disassembled the carriage return band to mount it on the 131d, at least I can use it.
It's a temporary solution, considering that the 151c is quite a rare model. Top of the Adler range, it was produced for less than a year as far as I understand, and it is a 'zwitter' between the previous 41c of which it retains the mechanics (Type I carbon ribbon mechanism, absence of the advance half space key , cursor start button etc.) and the following 151d, of which it anticipates the body shape (with the exception of the keyboard, which is still with isolated keys instead of block keys).
The Milano font is an additional bonus that makes the machine even more particular.
It is therefore a question of finding a working engine and putting it back in working order.

First serie of the latest model of the standard electro-mechanical Adler identified with three digits:
111: model without tabulator
131: model with simple tabulator
151: model with decimal tabulator
Until serial number 7767518 the models equipped with carbon ribbon were identified by the addition of the letter c; starting from this serial number the drive system has been updated, and the models equipped with the new system have been identified with the letter d.
Starting from serial number 7768930 the models without carbon ribbon have been identified with the letter f.

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 ...
