This listing is for a 1960s Beige Electra 120 by Smith Corona. It is the original finish. There is some scratching of the finish just under the keyboard but the rest of the typewriter looks very nice. I love the neutral tone and minimalistic look of this typewriter. Comes with a black hard-sided case in good condition.

Also, a digital copy of the owner’s manual is included in your purchase. We will email the pdf to you after your purchase.

performance review: The keystroke was smooth and unhindered, making it easy to get into a groove. I was impressed at the excellent performance of this machine and don’t hesitate to recommend it for heavy, regular use. The ease of use makes it ideal for younger typers but the excellent performance makes it attractive to experienced and active writers.

Be sure to watch the demo video below so you can see for yourself how smooth and easy it is to use. Cleaned, serviced, tested, and a new ribbon is installed. It is ready to go!
