1968 Royal Custom II
Up for sale is a beautiful Royal Custom II which was manufactured in 1968. This machine is similar to the Safari, however has some slight differences which are mostly cosmetic. This particular Custom II is in an original light maroon/red color, which also contrasts nicely with the rest of the body and keyboard- even better than the blue Safari in my opinion. It's also slightly less common.This typewriter has some cosmetic flaws, where some areas of paint are missing. (see pictures)
This typewriter is fully functional right down to the bell, and is an excellent workhorse. Keep in mind that it has an elite typeface, so it types 12 characters per inch instead of the standard 10.
This typewriter also comes with the original owner's manual, a service receipt from 1987, a warranty card, unpacking/repacking instructions, and some other misc. paperwork.
Just like the Safari, this machine uses universal ribbons which are sold on this site, and it's very easy to use and care for- especially with help from referencing the user's manual.
If you're looking for a really attractive machine that is ready to be used heavily and reliably, then this is a good choice.
