Mutant 66

An Imperial 66 with serious genetic mutation.

As well as a degree in office machines, I reckon you might need a pilot's licence for this.

Any clues?

More info...


  1. Good Lord, that's a monster and no mistake! I thought my standard 66 was a heavy brute; I'd hate to think what that thing weighs. I almost pity the poor seller when it comes to packing it up and whoever ends up buying it - where will they keep it?!

    My local transport museum has a wide carriage 65 of the same width, although nowhere near the complexity, that would have been used for typing up bus timetables I think. Perhaps something like that?

  2. What the heck?!

    I expect it's a system for feeding in bookkeeping forms or the like, kind of like on my Taylorix.

  3. This clearly is the godfather of the Imperial clan. I suppose it's a system where the bookkeeping part could be attached and detached to the regular built, or only slightly modified, typewriter below.

  4. Mother of god! What IS that?

    I don't get it. I can see a platen, and a platen, and a platen.. and a... How does that even work?!

    "I heard you like platens, so I put a platen on your platen so you could type while you type".

  5. I don't get it either. This must be plateception.
