1976 Smith-Corona Galaxie Twelve
Up for sale is a Smith-Corona Galaxie Twelve which was made in the USA in 1976. Cosmetically, this typewriter has a few flaws but is largely in excellent shape. Mechanically, this typewriter is sound and is fully functional right down to the bell. Just as the other late Smith-Corona models are, this typewriter is a beast and makes for an excellent typer. Equipped with a slightly wider, 12-inch carriage, this typewriter can type lengthwise on standard 8 x 11 papers with ease. Keep in mind that this typewriter writes in a slightly smaller than standard 12 pitch font (12 characters per inch instead of 10). The owners manual as well as other original paperwork are all included. This typewriter is also extremely easy to learn to use and care for, and uses universal ribbons which are sold on this website. If you're looking for a workhorse to write something such as a novel on, then this is a great option, especially if you are attracted to this machine's blue color.
