Nice typewriter for $5.00.
It does nice work.Is this the same Chevron as the oil company? If so, your machine would be the second typewriter sold by an oil company, after the Exxon QYX.
Nakajima All Co. Ltd AE330. ;)
Thanks Bill, Richard and Steve.Richard, I should have mentioned that this machine was sold by Woolworths (Australia). According to a history of the Australian chain store Woolworths, "In May, 1973 the Company introduced a carefully planned series of Woolworths Own Brands. 200 items were launched under five different Brand Names – St Mark, Tania, Grandway, Chevron and Woolworths all bearing the ‘Own Brands’ seal. To qualify for inclusion in the ‘Own Brands’ range the product had to be at least equal in quality to the national market leader but sold at a cheaper price." From memory (when writing on the Chevron manual portables) there was no link with the oil company.
Also, very similar to the 1983/84 Sears Communicator 1 & 2:https://typewriterdatabase.com/sears.615.typewriter-serial-number-database#sears_communicator_1
