Help identifying this Remington Rand

my sister and her boyfriend were scouring the streets for new furniture one day when they found this beautiful creature:
https://i.imgur.com/ArBCLK9.jpg
it has a number of features that to me suggests it came from 1955 at the earliest and 1970 at the latest. more or less a 1950s to 1960s timeframe but it seems that the 1970s is a possibility.
below i have labelled some parts so that you can easily see what features the typewriter has built in:

the serial number is LX126818, but as you can see the "L" is hidden under the spool, which caused me some frustration while looking for the serial number on the typewriter database. 
speaking of which, i do not think this model is on the typewriter database. either that or i could not find it.

there is some branding on the back and as you can see, a generous bit of text that says clearly it was made in holland

there is nothing of interest on the bottom of the typewriter. you have undoubtedly noticed by now it is completely missing a top cover. interestingly, the spools are also note for concern. there is no ribbon loaded at the moment and i do not have one. but upon doing some research, most other typewriters have a sort of metal axle that the new ribbon can be loaded onto.

this typewriter does not have that. it just has these plastic spools that do not look like they are meant to come off.

if anybody knows what model this typewriter is or how i would go about renovating it, please do share.
i really do think it is quite pretty and all the parts work flawlessly despite the wear, tear and ages it has survived. all things considered i feel as though it is in excellent condition.

Re: Help identifying this Remington Rand

Please read the FAQ thread that's posted at the top of the TYPE TALK sub-forum. It explains all of the forum's functions, including editing. (I deleted the duplicate photo for you.)

Information you might need to clean your machine is readily available in the MAINTENANCE sub-forum.

The model could be one of a few Remington portables, most likely either a Holiday or an Envoy, and was most likely manufactured in 1964.

Re: Help identifying this Remington Rand

what has me confused with this model is that most of the same generation seem to have the spacebar embedded into the framing like this:

Re: Help identifying this Remington Rand

Well, you have managed to identify your typewriter better than I have !  All that remains is to fill in some of the gaps.  The mechanical design of your machine is derived from a German model.  During the German recession of the late 1920's/early 1930's, Remington bought up a German maker called Torpedowerke.  I think the intention was to have them manufacture clones of the American Remingtons, but it never quite happened, and after trying to sell the Torpedo machines as 'Deutsche Remington', they gave up and left the factory to do its own thing.  This continued until around 1964 when Remington shut the factory down and moved production of the (still German design) portables to Holland where labour was cheaper and they could at last brand the machines as 'Remington'.  This is where your typewriter was made, as a much cheaper and more basic version of the Torpedo machines, but still with many of the design features. Regarding ribbons, you are quite right that the ribbon originally came wound on a wide metal ring.  This was for convenience of fitting and you do not have to have it.  Instead, buy a modern ribbon (for any make) and tie a tight little knot in one end.  You will see slots in the ribbon carrier.  Place the knot inside the carrier and lead the ribbon fabric out through the slot.  Wind the fabric onto the carrier by hand and then do the same for the other end.  The carrier should have a plastic push-in 'spool top' to prevent the ribbon from coming unfurled as you type - obviously missing on your machine.  I repair typewriters professionally, so if you are badly stuck and can't get any, I might be able to sell you a couple.  I'd have to check my stock.  I hope this helps !

Re: Help identifying this Remington Rand

thank you! you have been very helpful.
i should start another thread in the parts forum soon. though due to living in australia it may be a little more difficult for me to purchase the replacement parts i need.
i am especially concerned for that ribbon cover...
if this model is as obscure as it seems it is, and as specific as its history implies, it may be difficult to find a seller
