Item details

Vintage from the 1970s

Materials

metal, plastic, chrome, rubber

This is an Olivetti Studio 45 vintage manual typewriter. This machine has been reconditioned and is in excellent working condition.

The Olivetti 45 was introduced in the late 1960s and continued to be produced until the mid 1970s. The 45 was one of the larger portable typewriters ever made, with almost the same size as a larger standard machine, but much lighter as it was made with a mostly plastic case. Like other Olivetti machines, the Studio 45 was made with quality parts and craftsmanship and is a fine example of a vintage typewriter.

As with all my typewriters, I have cleaned, lubricated, adjusted, and polished this vintage typewriter. I have also installed a new ribbon, so this machine is ready-to-use as soon as you get it home.

**COSMETIC CONDITION**
Cosmetically, this Olivetti typewriter is in excellent (9/10) condition. The gray and black color scheme with the chrome accent and control pieces has a great retro-futuristic vibe to it. There are a few minor cosmetic flaws here and there, but overall this machine looks like it was barely used.

This Olivetti typewriter also comes with a hard gray carrying case that is in good condition, though one of the latches has broken off. The case still closes and latches shut, but you should be careful as I wouldn't recommend relying on the remaining latch to stay closed if you intend to carry the machine around in the case.

**MECHANICAL CONDITION**
Mechanically, this Olivetti is in excellent (9/1) condition. The typing action is nice and light, with a crisp feel. The control features function as they should, the type is clear, and the platen has not hardened significantly enough to leave very many indentations in the page. This machine is capable of heavy writing if called upon.

**INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING**
I do ship internationally, so please contact me for a quote if you are interested in any of my typewriters but are located outside of the United States.

**RECOMMENDED BUYER**
I believe this Olivetti Studio 45 would be ideal for someone who wants a mid-century typewriter for display or regular use purposes. As a lighter, larger portable machine, this typewriter would work rather well for heavy writing purposes, though I always recommend a typewriter pad if that's your intent. Overall, this is a high-quality vintage typewriter ready and willing to do what it was made to do.

Thank you for looking, and feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.
