A wonderful two tone creme and caramel coloured Triumph typewriter made in Germany in 1961. The Triumph name comes from Siegfried Bettmann who as a young man left Germany to live in England and develop a bicycle business which he named Triumph. He then took over a typewriter maker back in Germany and with designer Paul Grutzmann came up with the Triumph typewriter. Although his association with England finished, the German Triumph typewriter company went on for many years making fabulous machines.
It has the Triumph logo on the front and the " Perfekt " logo on the panel on the top of the carriage It is in a full working order and we have given it a clean, professional service, re adjusted and tested it as well as fitting a new top quality American made ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on.
We can supply Universal TW38 ribbons from £6.95 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black and a range of other colour options.
There are a few very small marks to the paintwork mainly on the left hand edge of the ribbon cover, but generally its in a very nice condition. The keys are in a light tan colour and also in a good condition. This one has the standard "elite" sized type face giving you 12 letters to the inch.
The body of the typewriter measures 29cm wide by 30cm deep by 12cm high and comes with a hard plastic case which the typewriter sits into the base and the top clips down to provide you with a handle. The handle and clips to close all work well. The case has the Triumph logo on the outside. Its in a good general condition with some small marks on the inside and outside. The two clips to fasten the typewriter to the carry case base have been removed.
We include a copy of the original manual.
This is a lovely early 1960's Triumph typewriter which types very nicely, and would be ideal for anyone wanting to do extended typing projects.
