1970s Olivetti Studio 45
Up for sale is an Olivetti Studio 45 which was made in Barcelona, Spain, sometime in the early 1970s. This typewriter is in great shape overall, and is fully functional right down to the bell. The body of this machine is plastic, making it pretty lightweight for its size. Surprisingly to me, this typewriter actually has a great touch and types really nicely. If you're looking for a heavy typer, this is another excellent option. Unfortunately universal ribbons don't fit this typewriter, but otherwise it's quite easy to use and maintain. Included is a spare ribbon that came with this machine (it's unopened, but I can't guarantee it will type like a fresh ribbon). Still, Olivetti ribbons are very common on eBay and Amazon, so no worries about keeping this one writing. Also included is the instructions manual card (two-sided), and some additional papers.
