1967 Penncrest (SCM) Caravelle 10 Serial # P6S-105173 1967 Penncrest (SCM) Caravelle 10 typewriter, Serial # P6S-105173 Mike Green's 1967 Penncrest (SCM) Caravelle 10 typewriter. 2022-05-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mike Green: 1967 Penncrest (SCM) Caravelle 10 Serial # P6S-105173 Penncrest Caravelle 10 made by Smith-Corona. I like these designs for JC Penny. Reminds me of cars of the period. It's a good typer. Still made with all metal shells. Found in this 2-tone blue and a less common maroon and gold. Made in both 10 and 12 carriage sizes. I find rock hard platens in these 60s SCM machines while I have typewriters from the early 50s that still have pliable platens.
