A very attractive and fun typewriter! 1958 Royal Futura 800 in pink and gray combo. These models come in several color combinations. Modern shape and relatively easy to navigate so it’s suitable for younger users as well. Only a few small nicks and scratches, very minor. Overall a beautiful machine. A new ribbon is installed. Professionally serviced, cleaned, tested, new ribbon, original case. It’s ready to go!

Remember, you are purchasing a vintage item. This is 64 years old. Read the full description and watch the demo video so you understand what to expect.

performance review: Very nice performance. Smooth keystroke. Suitable for medium to heavy use. A wonderful typewriter for high school and college students, poets, journalers, and more. In previous testing, the margin release gave me some issues, but when I actually did the video, it worked perfectly.

Serviced, cleaned, tested, new ribbon installed, demo & tutorial videos. Be sure to watch the demo video so you can see how it performs!
