1960s Ronson Typhoon windproof lighter - British Empire Made in Hong Kong - Engraved SUSIE - rehabbed with new flint and wick, Works Great!

Sorry, this item has sold.

1960s Ronson Typhoon windproof lighter with a worn champagne satin finish and gold cap. One side of the lighter is engraved SUSIE. These Ronson Typhoons are from the 1960s which means they are British Empire Made in Hong Kong.

The lighter was disassembled and chemically cleaned to remove years of carbonization. It was then rehabbed with a new flint and wick. The original Ronson dacron/cotton threaded fuel cotton was in great condition and reused. The lighter was then tested with a few drops of lighter fluid on the wick to ensure proper function.

Moderate to HEAVY pocket wear, this lighter has made the rounds and looks well worn. It is full of love and character and would make a great present to that perfect (or imperfect) SUSIE in your life. This is a mechanically functional and well made lighter that will serve you for years to come. The lighter will be shipped to you with no fluid as per USPS regulation. Add Ronson or Zippo brand liquid lighter fluid and it's ready to put into everyday use.
