Turns out, this thing *is* metal-bodied. Sort of a cast aluminum alloy like the Lettera 32 I have. Much sturdier than the body of the L32, and quite nicely-shaped for gripping with the hand and tucking under your arm.
Olivetti Lettera 35l
Type sample from Olivetti Lettera 35l, Pica 10cpi.
Steady rain and constant overcast is keeping the temperature nice and chilly.
