1970 Remington Streamliner II Serial # AX 10 96 79 1970 Remington Streamliner II typewriter, Serial # AX 10 96 79 King Corduroy's 1970 Remington Streamliner II typewriter. 2015-05-04 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of King Corduroy: 1970 Remington Streamliner II Serial # AX 10 96 79 This is a mid to late 60's portable made by Remington. It's build is almost completely plastic but in my opinion is still quite nice to look at. However it's typing seems off, the keys are much too small for a mans hands although the action is crisp when you do manage to hit them.
I bought this typewriter for 2$ at the Wilmot Flea market, originally it had a sticker on it with the date 1970 but unfortunately it fell off while I was walking around the flea market.

My biggest complaint about this Remington is that in 70 years Remington has not put a real spool for the ribbon on ANY of their typewriters, so naturally this one doesn't have a spool either and suffers from the same messy ink ribbon problem all the rest of their typewriters do.

I have never seen one of these cases clean, the bumps seem to be a dirt and grime magnet.

I am a mechanical engineering student with a fascination for antiques, I bought my first typewriter when I was in 6th or 7th grade. It was a very beat-up and dejected Remington Noiseless Model 7 and it only cost me 5$ since I was the only one at the auction interested in it. Since then I have sold it (and happen to know it is sitting in an antique shop) but my love for typewriters has never waned.
Since then my interests have spread to vintage computers and other electronics and I have obtained many interesting things. I now own 3 typewriters, but I am always looking for more and those sleek portables of the 1940's and 50's always catch my eye.
