Very nice machine and one that is on my list for 2012 in blue or green. That machine really has a nice typeface.Have a Very Happy & Prosperous New Year!
They put this body on other models. I have a "futura-istic" one badged "All-American" That I got over the Summer.You can see it here:http://manualentry.blogspot.com/2011/09/royal-typecast-at-fair.html
I really like the "e" on this typeface. Very distinctive!
I have a Royal Futura 800 in blue that needs a small amount of help. Everything works fine on it, but the blue on the very top has faded some. How would I go about refurbishing it? There really is no problem with the typewriter other than the paint starting to fade. My goal is to get it in tiptop condition and possibly sell it. Thank you!
Hi Merlyn. All I can suggest is you sell it as it is, and let the buyer decide what he or she wants to do about the top. You could respray it yourself, but you'd have to own up to that in the listing description, I think. The top in the images you see on this post was resprayed by me.
just found one of these in the attic.... not sure where to even sell something like this, or find worth. So far it looks like 1958, it is silverish in color.
