Yellow Electra 120, Repainted
dimensions: 17″ x 12″ x 6″
Red/Black Universal Ribbon
Original hard-sided case
serial number: 6ELL-297251H

In the demo video, there were no typing issues, but I did have some hesitations in the typewriter on other typing tests. Nothing major, but it happened and I wasn’t able to get it to repeat – but want to be honest and open. It is repainted but the paint didn’t come out great. It looks good from a distance, but up close you can see that it is uneven in the coverage. Again, I wanted to be open that it is not perfect. Please look at all the images and watch the demo video. I have lowered the price of this typewriter by HALF! And it is sold AS-IS. No warranty avilable.
This typewriter will be ideal for kids or for someone just getting started and wants a budget machine.
Cleaned and serviced and a new ribbon. >>Remember to watch the demo video.

New universal ribbon installed for you. Ready to go!
Watch the demo video for my full review. Serviced, cleaned, tested, new ribbon installed, demo & tutorial videos. An extra ribbon can be added to your order and future replacement ribbons may be purchased on our website.

Additionally, we highly recommend adding a non-slip typewriter pad to protect your table surface and to keep the typewriter from scooting! 😁
