*Refurbished Royal Futura 800 Manual Typewriter - Blue and Red
A bit of history:
”The Royal Futura 800 was the most popular, most feature-full, and most expensive model. 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.”
Check out this red/white/blue Royal Futura! It's in nice condition and works great!
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 shows some signs of wear and light corrosion on metal lock and trim as is common with these carrying cases. The original handle is missing, which is also common. Notice that the blue paint does show some fading.
