If you (or anyone here) has never worked on a teleprinter (Teletype or other make) please please please ask someone experienced. If not one can and many time has happened is all plastic parts of which there are many in a 32/33 and few in a 28/35/37 can be destroyed.
Having said that, if you end up with a 35, join the mailing list called "greenkeys".
I have a very good condition ASR35, but it hasn't been on for 20 years at the least, probably much more than that. I know zero about it (or any tty for that matter). You can bet once I get to that point I'll be asking the tty wizards here for help :)
Same goes for a couple ASR33's I have that are actually in marginal condition.
For whatever reason, I really want my tty's to run at some point, but they are not super high on the list given limited time. I will get to them some day though!
