1976 Smith Corona Super G Serial # 7YP50296 1976 Smith Corona Super G typewriter, Serial # 7YP50296 Tomasz Grzybek's 1976 Smith Corona Super G typewriter. 2024-03-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tomasz Grzybek: 1976 Smith Corona Super G Serial # 7YP50296 1976 Smith-Corona Super-G & GT portable typewriter. SN: 7YP50296.
English font. Tabulator. Touch step adjuster to be set in three positions (L, M, H). Additional automatic spacebar (Power Space).
13 mm two-color ribbon on dedicated spools with a diameter of 42 mm (1.6535 inches). Shaft with a diameter of 32.2 mm (1.288 inches) with a hardness of 83-96 on the Schore "A" scale.
An orange-colored machine with the "Design by Ghia" logo and black stripes on the cover in the style of sports cars.

The machine came to me for repair. It was all sticky and had a characteristic white coating, probably from the concealer in the spool, which over time began to dissolve and stick to practically everything, including the roller.
Types made of soft metal with a tendency to warp. Some types are severely crooked, even overlapping each other, making writing impossible. The fonts are arranged unevenly due to the soft felt in the place where the type rests when resting.
The roller has minor damage and abrasions due to the soft rubber of the roller, which does not affect the quality of the font print on the paper.
Typing is comfortable and very fast. However, I miss the additional soundproofing of this all-plastic machine.

I live in Poland. My hobby is restoring analog devices to life. I do all the work, from cleaning, through mechanical repairs, to possible painting, by myself. I learn a lot from it. The love for typewriters began with Hermes 3000, which I received in 2022 from my sister as a gift. And so the collection is slowly growing...
