Produced from 1964 to 1966, the Galaxie II was Smith-Corona's premium portable typewriter; this machine dates to 1965. The graphics speak to this typewriter's moment in American history, at the height of the Space Race: its front-panel logo could have been taken right out of an episode of The Jetsons. This typewriter has been gone through carefully -- adjusted, cleaned, lubricated, repaired where appropriate. It has a fresh ribbon and latches securely into its sturdy Trimline carrying case. Here's a quick clip of the machine at work. 1965 Smith-Corona Galaxie II typewriter demo. The Galaxie II is the second iteration of a new design released by Smith-Corona in 1959. It's not one of those lightweight typewriters you'll take along to the coffee shop. It's a full-sized portable designed for home use, with a protective case that lets you store it away in a closet. The photos should convey this machine's cosmetics; the ribbon cover has been refinished with three coats of satin metallic nickel paint.

This machine has a full metal baseplate; the image of the typewriter's underside was taken with the baseplate removed. This typewriter is performing smoothly and correctly, right down to the bright end-of-line bell.

The platen's rubber surface is in good condition. Lines can be adjusted for single, double or triple-spacing. The typist's experience at the keyboard is excellent. The clear copy produced by this typewriter suggests an easy life over the years.

The type you see on the specimen page is pica, 10 characters to the inch -- the larger of the two most common typewriter font sizes. That said, you won't need to replace the fresh ribbon installed here for several hundred pages.
