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 1967. It has the Olympia logo on the front and has been professionally cleaned, serviced, adjusted and tested. It is in full working order and is fitted with a new top quality American made Universal ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on. This one has the standard  "elite" type face with the 11 letters to the inch. 

We can supply Universal TW38 typewriter ribbons from £6.95 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black and a range of other colour options.

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. The metal casing is in a very nice condition with just a few small marks, mainly on the front edge of the ribbon cover. The typewriter measures 30 cm by 32 cm by 14 cm high.

It comes with a standard Olympia two tone creme and grey carry case which is also in a good functional condition with just some small marks and signs of wear on the inside and outside. The handle and latch to close work well. 

We include a copy of an instruction manual.

"My Olivetti arrived a couple days ago. Got a chance to test it out and it works like a dream (you wouldn’t guess it was nearly half a century old). Thank you for including the original metal spools, it adds a great touch to the machine. Looking forward to adding another typewriter to the collection sometime soon..." - Jake
