A very cool 1970's design classic Smith Corona Ghia typewriter in a wonderful teal colour with black keys in full working condition .Smith Corona collaborated with famous car designers Tom Tjaarda and Alejandro de Tomaso to produce in England this Ghia typewriter with its car characteristics of sleek lines , vibrant colour , "racing stripes " on the lid and rubber treads on the base for feet . It also has a "power space " feature and the Ghia red and blue crest logo on the lid and the Smith Corona badge on the front right side.
This typewriter has been professionally cleaned ,serviced, adjusted and tested . It is in full working order and is fitted with a new ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on.
We can supply Group 1 typewriter ribbons at $12.50 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black, blue and purple. You would then rewind the new ribbon onto the Smith Corona spools already in the typewriter .A ribbon will last you a long time and to give you an idea , in an office environment with someone using a typewriter professionally a ribbon would last them around 3 months .
It all works and types well and is in a good condition with only a few minor marks and feint scratches and some discolouration mainly on the left hand side .It's lid or case is fully functional and clips down over the typewriter . There are a few marks and scratches in places to the lid . It has a handle that pulls out from the front to carry it around and the Ghia logo on the case top as well as the black racing stripes.
The typewriter measures 28 cms x 31 cms x 9 cms , so is a good portable size .It has the slightly larger " Pica " sized font giving you 12 letters to the inch. We also include a copy of a Smith Corona manual for this model.
