1962 Groma Kolibri Serial # 689079 1962 Groma Kolibri typewriter, Serial # 689079 Daniel Burgoyne's 1962 Groma Kolibri typewriter. 2023-03-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Daniel Burgoyne: 1962 Groma Kolibri Serial # 689079 Wade Staddon, a fellow collector, gifted me this typewriter in the hope that I would be able to restore it.

The damage caused by rust is extensive all over this machine and, really catastrophic at the rear part of the carriage.

I acquired an "irrecuperable due to damage by shipping" Groma Kolibri #600906 from from a collector in Colorado, USA in order to Frankenstein the two machines into one functional Kolibri with a QWERTY French Canadian keyboard.

Bonjour! I am from the region of Montreal, Quebec and moved to Ottawa, Ontario in 1992.

Amateur watchmaker and machinist, I love anything mechanical, hydraulic or electric. I have restored American and Canadian clocks and small lathes, milling machines and a jig bore.

Most of my typewriters have French Canadian QWERTY keyboards, with some exception for rare finds.
