A new Black/Red Ribbon has been fitted     

The solidly-British Imperial Good Companion Four, launched in 1957, was in fact a modernised version of the original Good Companion from 1932 !   Therefore although typically 1950's in appearance, the 'works' inside hark back to the pre-war era !  Not a bad thing, since the machine is of typically solid 'nuts and bolts' costruction.

A heavy portable of the old school, it features a 44-character keyboard, two-colour ribbon and long fold-up paper rest. This machine has seen some use and although in good condition is not 'mint' with some chips and scratches apparent in the enamel.  If you are looking for a reliable vintage typewriter which has lived a little, this is the one to have !
