Originally introduced in 1932, the Imperial Good Companion had matured into a version with a tabulator and freehead by the time the mark six had been introduced.  Still an old fashioned heavy portable at heart, but with modern 1960's styling, I like to think of this model as the 'Morris Minor' of typewriters !   Very British, very upright and very 'nuts and bolts' construction - and kept in production for far too long because it still did the job and customers continued to buy them !  Featuring a 44-character keyboard, fold up paper rest, handy freehead for lining up pre-printed forms, and of course the tabulator which gives it its name '6T'.

A one-owner machine from new, this machine appears to have been laid up unused for most of its life, and after a though servicing is in almost 'time warp' condition.  It still types as well as the day it was bought in 1961 and has many more years of reliable service ahead of it.  It comes with the original makers instruction book, guarantee, typeface cleaning brush and eraser shields.  It is housed in a heavy duty brown leatherette carry case with an internal pocket.  A unique opportunity to own an almost new early 1960's typewriter !
