*Refurbished Royal Futura 800 Manual Typewriter - Gray
The Royal Futura 800 was the most popular, most feature-full, and most expensive model of the Futura line that was manufactured between 1958 and 1962. It had a 44-key (48 character) keyboard. At the time, this was considered to be a full-keyboard and was more likely to be found on large office typewriters than on portable ones. The 800 also came equipped with a plastic, custom-fitted dust cover and internal felt lining to mute typing noise. Behind the paper table was a retractable V-shaped paper guide that allowed for easy viewing of work in progress. The 800 came in several different two-tone colors: "Periwinkle Blue", "Meadow Green", "Mist Gray", and "Cocoa" (often referred to as Salmon-Pink). A three-tone “Americana” model with red, white, and blue body panels was also offered.
This may be the nicest example I've seen of the Royal Futura. It's nearly perfect and shows very little wear or signs of use. Check the photos closely to see what I mean.
As with all my typewriters, I have lovingly refurbished this Futura to full working order and even installed a new ribbon. It's ready for a new home and a lot of use!
Comes thoroughly tested with a fresh ribbon installed along with the original carrying case. (The carrying case is mechanically complete and fully functional showing some signs of wear and light corrosion on metal lock and trim).
