  • SORRY,SOLD! 1960 Triumph Gabriele Typewriter

    €480.00Price

    This is a Triumph Gabriele typewriter from 1960 in khaki and cream colours. It is called the "Safari" model but it could be equally at home on a beachside porch or mountain cabin. This typewriter has all original colours, has a new platen (!), has been fully serviced, adjusted and aligned, and is in beautiful condition cosmetically.

    Triumph typewriters were not heavily exported from Germany and so, finding one like this with an original QWERTY keyboard is a bit of a rarity. This typewriter comes with the original User Manual and original cleaning kit. It has a great mid-century look and is perfect for typing "in the wild" or on the desktop.

    To "share the joy" of the opening of our new store in Holland, we'll upgrade your shipoing choice to UPS Air Express for free, with delivery in 2-3 days!Please forgive the poor photography as we prepare our new photo studio. Our studio is undergoing renovations and will not be available until July. Note that the first photo is a "stock" ACME photo and the rest are of the actual typewriter for sale.

    Like all of our typewriters this is a fully-working typewriter. It comes with the "Acme" lead certification seal attached to the typewriter which permanently identifies it as a genuine Acme-restored typewriter and provides for a one year warranty. We guarantee safe delivery and provide careful and attentive after-purchase advice and assistance from the date of purchase to the end of eternity to ensure your full satisfaction. In terms of an investment, the Acme Seal proves that this machine was restored by the Acme Type Machine Company. This can add value in the event that you wish to sell this typewriter in the future.

    This Gabriele typewriter is, mechanically, in top working condition. All buttons and levers work smoothly and correctly. On our workbench it has been properly serviced and adjusted so that it is ready for decades more fine typing. Cosmetically, it has almost no signs of age and use. The chrome is in perfect condition.

    The keyboard is international QWERTY with accents for foreign languages and the typeface is a lovely Pica (10 cpi). See photo. The platen roller has been professionally rebuilt with new rubber, by the oldest rubber refinishing company in the Netherlands. It comes with a new two-colour ribbon so you can start typing immediately. The paper feed rollers are in fine condition and the rubber feet are in top condition and grip the desk well.

    This typewriter is a solid typing machine with a lovely, light "touch", good, fast speed and a tight feel to all the mechanical movements. This fine TRIUMPH Gabriele comes with its original case, which is in excellent condition and has the top-cover Triumph badge which is commonly lost.
