"The finest writing machine money can buy, with all the advantages of portability... It’s built better - for life.” Known as the Mercedes Benz of Typewriters Olympia is simply the best and my area of expertise! The “writer’s typewriter” ever since their introduction, Olympia SM models have been very closely tied to the fates and fingers of authors, writers, celebrities and highly sought after by collectors. They’re dependable, comfortable to use and are solid in feel and function. With its appealing styling and beautiful chrome accents the Olympia is a unique blend of beauty, performance and reliability. The 50’s and 60’s are known to be the decades that typewriters had the best functionality and the Olympia exceeds those expectations a engineering marvel.


The Olympia is so small for a typewriter of that generation coming in at only 11”x10”x3” and weighing 14 lbs so you get the action of a workhorse with great portability. This machine is the most preferred writing tool for anyone prefers a manual typewriter and being fully reconditioned it will continue to serve for many decades to come.


Fully reconditioned (read on that process below—most sellers do not do this or have the training to do so and we are experts in Olympia.


My typewriters are packaged securely for shipping and come with the case and user manual.


We have a large inventory of typewriter accessories like typewriter pads, dustcover, extra ribbons, vintage paper, correction paper, erasers and more that you can add to your order! Too see them all just check them out in the shop and add individually and you will see some select options at checkout.


What is Restoration and Reconditioning?


All the typewriters available for sale at Colombo Collection have been professionally reconditioned and restored to ultimate functionality unless otherwise stated as serviced. You can read more on our about us page to understand the differences between serviced, refurbished, reconditioned and restored. Most sellers do not have the training or do not provide these services.


So how do we do it?


First, we disassemble the typewriter including the body and the platen from the carriage and place the typewriter into an ultra-sonic cleaning tank to degrease the machine removing gunk, grime, oil, and any dirt. All typewriters go through a careful drying process before moving to the restoration stage.


Next, all the pieces are reviewed for damage or corrosion, and treated or replaced as needed. Keys and hammers are straightened, and their alignments corrected. Then all the metals are chemically cleaned and polished.


All rubber components are replaced, and the platen and feed rollers are refurbished or replaced as needed. We treat and repair the plastic components as necessary, and rubbing compounds are used to remove scratches on the machine before it is resurfaced and polished.


As for the exterior, if left original, your typewriter is cleaned, treated, buffed and polished.


If it’s a restored, painted piece, the body is cleaned, sanded, degreased, primed, painted with new paint then dried and polished.


The typewriter is tested throughout the process, and once the machine is reassembled, it goes through a lengthy Final Quality Assurance testing that is over 30 minutes of continuous typing, and a complete alignment and functions check—any final adjustments are made at this time.


With a reconditioned typewriter from Colombo Collection, you can rest assured that you have invested in a quality Typewriter that has been fully tested and restored to provide many years of reliable service!
