Work in Progress: Guess the Typewriter Model

Working on a personalised typewriter for a third grand-daughter - the first two have been an enormous success (well, the grand-daughters just love them to bits!). This one has been primed before being painted predominantly pink, with sparkles and possibly rainbows and unicorns.

I picked this one up cheap in Chiltern in Victoria last week - working nicely, but fairly battered. Can anyone guess what model it is? Some of these models were made in Pakistan, but this one comes from the original country of manufacture, also starting with the letter "P". Come on, it's as easy as "A ..."
This is the previous effort, which went to an eager young author in London, England, and has been greatly appreciated:

Yep, that's a Sears variation of the ABC/Cole Steel. I'm actually looking for one of those in good working order to transplant into a Cole Steel shell. I have hopes that the mount points are still the same. (:
