Based on the mechanism of the Good Companion 3, introduced in the late 1940's, this machine had matured to its final form, the Good Companion 7, by the early 1960's. A lovely, solid typewriter by a well-known British manufacturer, this model was regarded as the luxury model of the range.
Featuring a 46-character keyboard (unusual for a portable typewriter), a fold-up paper rest, a freehead to enable pre-printed forms to be lined up easily, full tabulator and keyboard touch control, this is a very well specified typewriter. It has virtually all the features that you would expect to find on an office typewriter.
This particular machine appears to have had very little use from new and is in virtually 'time-warp' condition. It certainly has many more years of reliable service ahead of it !
