1958 Imperial - The Good Companion 5

$0.00 AUD

 Imperial typewriters were made in Leicester in England and the Good Companion model was first launched in 1932. It was named after J. B. Priestley's book " The Good Companions" which had been published at the same time and the collaboration with Priestley helped sell a huge number of Imperial typewriters.

This model is a number 5 and was made in 1958 in England and has a metal body in a pale pastel green enamel colour with black keys and dark green shift keys and space bar. It has " Manufactured by the Imperial Typewriter Company Ltd Leicester England " on the back and  the "Imperial " logo badge at the front. The type face  on this one is the standard "elite" size giving you 12 letters to the inch.

This typewriter has been professionally cleaned, serviced, adjusted and tested. It is in full working order and is fitted with a new top quality American made Universal black  ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on.

We can supply Universal typewriter ribbons from $13.90 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black and a range of other colour options.

"My Olivetti arrived a couple days ago. Got a chance to test it out and it works like a dream (you wouldn’t guess it was nearly half a century old). Thank you for including the original metal spools, it adds a great touch to the machine. Looking forward to adding another typewriter to the collection sometime soon..." - Jake
