1965 Royal Safari
Up for sale is a beautiful Royal Safari which was made in 1965. This typewriter unfortunately is missing its original carrying case, however the typewriter is somehow in remarkable condition given that it was likely not stored in a case for many years. The paint is extremely clean, and is nearly flawless except for a few small scratches and a factory paint flaw on the left side of the body (see last picture). The paint color is a very attractive salmon red or orange. Mechanically, this typewriter is flawless and is fully functional right down to the bell. This typewriter is a very smooth and reliable workhorse, and would be great for writing something like a novel on. Additionally, this typewriter is pretty easy to use and care for. In fact, changing the ribbon on this machine is about as easy as it gets and this typewriter uses universal ribbons which are sold on this site. The owner's manual can be found here:
If you're in the market for an attractive space-age portable that can be used heavily and reliably and don't mind not having a carrying case (or looking for one on eBay) then this is a perfect machine for you.
