1980 QYX 2 Serial # 02-0444544 1980 QYX 2 typewriter, Serial # 02-0444544 Mark Schrad's 1980 QYX 2 typewriter. 2023-08-14 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1980 QYX 2 Serial # 02-0444544 I had no idea that Exxon made the Qyx "intelligent typewriter," until stumbling across this absolutely pristine version in the Bob Aubert collection, Delran, NJ in August, 2023. A fascinating daisy-wheel machine with limited memory and early word-processor design. The original advertisement dates from 1980: https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=--uwuseejvU&fbclid=IwAR3uqC3CsEE09Lag3HkZPif0dt_MGT0pgIehw7h-O9juCyeDi_5UKFrkirg

This one powers on and tests okay, but doesn't seem to function far beyond that.
