1977 Cursive Smith-Corona Classic 12
Up for sale is a nice Smith-Corona Classic 12 which was made in 1977. This typewriter types in cursive, also known as script font. The height of the typeface on this machine means that Smith-Corona had to change the ribbon color selector to only allow for black (or any other single color that the ribbon is) and stencil. Therefore, although this typewriter does take universal ribbons, it will need to be a single color ribbon only.
This particular Classic 12 is in near mint shape overall, aside from some slight scuffs on the left-side body panel. Mechanically, this typewriter is perfect and is fully functional down to the bell. The carrying case- rather large and protective- is also in perfect shape. This typewriter was made to be a reliable workhorse, and so it remains one. If you're looking to write a novel in cursive, then this typewriter is pretty much the best out there. This typewriter is a breeze to write on, and even has a key dedicated to unjamming stuck typebars, so you don't even have to reach into the typebasket to return jammed keys (if you accidentally strike more than 1 key at a time).
