Just completely overhauled. It looks and functions just like new. It has been cleaned in a chemical bath, high-mortality parts replaced, lubricated with synthetic grease and oil and adjusted to factory perfection. This machine has been completely refurbished and a new replacement metal cycle clutch pulley installed to replace the plastic one that commonly fails. I strive to make every machine as perfect and new as possible.
It has a 15" platen, Error Correction and the wonderful Selectric "touch" keyboard that everyone loves. It is a Dual-pitch (10 and 12 cpi) typewriter that uses any of the elements for a Selectric I or II (88 character elements).
The casting date in the housing and the mfg date on the motor show June 1978.
Once was US Navy property.

I love mechanical things and have tinkered with manual and electric typewriters since my teens. I have always been fascinated by the IBM Selectric, but it was later in life that I finally got my hands on one to explore. I learned to repair/restore them and suddenly I have several of them. I don't really consider myself a collector, but rather a restorer. I enjoy bringing old machines back to usable condition and then pass them on to other people to use and enjoy.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the IBM Selectric II on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the IBM Serial Number page and the IBM Selectric II By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
