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 7 and was made in 1962 in England and has a two tone salmon pink colour with black keys and creme shift keys, carriage knobs and space bar. It has " Manufactured by the Imperial Typewriter Company Ltd Leicester England " on the back and the Imperial Good Companion logo at the front.
There are a few minor marks and signs of wear to the paintwork of the body of the typewriter, mainly on the front corners and left side of the ribbon cover. This one has the uncommon Imperial Book Style 17 typeface in an "elite" size giving you 12 letters to the inch and a variety of maths keys. Please note the Tabulator function for doing column work has at some stage been removed and well as the paper rest at the back of the carriage.
This typewriter has been professionally cleaned, serviced, adjusted and tested. It is in full working order and fitted with a new black quality American made ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on.
We can supply Universal typewriter ribbons when required from $13.90 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black and a range of other colour options.
It comes with it's original tan coloured carry case which is also in a good functional condition with just some minor marks and discolouration in places on both the outside and inside. The metal closure and handle both work well. There are two sliver buttons on each side of the typewriter which release it from the inside base. We also include a copy of an original Model 7 instruction booklet.
The typewriter measures 28cm by 30 cm by 11 cm high.
This is a wonderful 1960's style typewriter in a good working order in a rarer salmon pink colour and uncommon type face and maths keys.
