1986 IBM Wheelwriter 3 Serial # 6746-11-0212253 1986 IBM Wheelwriter 3 typewriter, Serial # 6746-11-0212253 Mark Petersen's 1986 IBM Wheelwriter 3 typewriter. 2013-11-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1986 IBM Wheelwriter 3 Serial # 6746-11-0212253 Found at Goodwill for $6 in Staunton, Virginia. I didn't intend to keep it until I tried typing on it and fell in love with the space-movie zipping sound of the carriage return and also discovered I do enjoy writing on it. It is probably my largest typewriter and storing it does suck. But these are cool, and if you want a well rounded typewriter collection I think it is important to check these modern machines out.
