1965 Olivetti Lettera 32
Up for sale is a beautiful Olivetti Lettera 32 which was manufactured in Italy in 1965. This typewriter is in near mint shape both cosmetically and mechanically. Everything is fully functional on this typewriter, right down to the bell. The paint is in great shape as well, with very few scratches or flaws. This machine does not have a carrying case, however it does have an original Olivetti dust cover which is included instead. This typewriter is a very smooth and reliable typer, and makes for a great portable workhorse. Despite its small size, this typewriter can definitely be used heavily. This typewriter is very easy to use, and uses the universal ribbons sold on this site. The ribbon currently installed in this machine had barely enough ink to clearly type the type sample, so I will be installing a fresh ribbon as soon as this machine is purchased. The owner's manual can be downloaded for free here: http://site.xavier.edu/polt/typewriters/OlivettiLettera32_Manual.pdf
An interesting touch to this machine is that it has the Spanish "Ñ", as well as the accent and upside-down question mark and exclamation point.
If you're looking for a beautiful, blue Olivetti in fully functional shape that is ready to be used for years to come, then this is the one for you.
