A wonderful Olympia SM 7 De Luxe typewriter in a rare ice blue and grey colour with off white keys , space bar and carriage knobs . Olympia was a German brand of typewriter that was known for their great quality and ease of use and this one was made in West Germany in 1963. It has the Olympia logo on the front and the manufacturers details on the back and the keyset tabulator at the front . It types very nicely and has been professionally cleaned ,serviced, adjusted and tested . It is in full working order and is fitted with a new Group 1 ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on .
We can supply Group 1 typewriter ribbons from £4.95 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black and a range of other colour options in a Universal ribbon. A ribbon will last you a long time and to give you an idea , in an office environment with someone using a typewriter professionally a ribbon would last them around 3 months .
This model has a metal casing and the whole front section lifts up to access the ribbon . The SM portables have a reputation as being "the writers " typewriter and this one certainly types very nicely .It does have a few very minor marks to the casing ,mainly on the top front edge of the ribbon cover ,but it is generally in a very good condition . It measures 30 cms by 32 cms by 14 cms high and although classed as a portable is quite heavy. If you are wanting something to carry around a fair bit this may not be the best option , but if you are after a good solid and well made typer this is certainly one to consider.
It comes with a standard Olympia two tone creme and grey carry case which is also in a very good condition with just some small marks and signs of wear . The handle and latch to close work well.
We include a copy of an instruction manual . All in all this is a good working Olympia in a lovely condition and a vary collectable colour.
