1965 Speedwriter Cavalier Typewriter

Sorry, this item has sold.

The Speedwriter Cavalier is actually a Commodore, which itself is a Consul 224 that was assembled in Toronto, Canada. 

It's a portly portable, and since it's metal through-and-through it's as heavy as a cinder block. Kind of looks like one too. Still, it's a decent typewriter for those who place practicality and function above all else.

Typewriter is in good working condition with a couple minor scratches on the surface. Keys strike quickly and smoothly and it comes with new ribbon installed in your choice of black and turquoise or black and red.

Case is in fair condition, locks fine but handle is starting to tear.

Oftentimes vintage items need a bit more creativity to operate than a brand new item and can have unique quirks like a stiff button, or wiggly latch. We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
Returns will be handled on a case by case basis.
