This is a genuine Canadian built 500 series telephone. I have bought a small quantity of complete Red body kits from the USA used to upgrade to modular type connections. As you can see it is as new and is fully tested to dial out and receive perfectly. This is the real thing and not one of the many reproductions you will see. Circa early 1970s telephone re-cased with un-issued Red cases to make as new telephones.
This is a classic model used in the USA and Canada and the model No is 500 series and dated from 1949 in black and colours from 1954. This is a very nice model and can be seen in hundreds of American films. This model has a beautiful ring tone and you will best remember this from the Rockford files at the beginning of each episode. The ringer is adjustable to be loud or soft via a small wheel under the telephone. The 500 series model was so popular it is now being copied and many reproductions are being sold. This is the genuine article and I will have a small number for sale from early August. They were built to a very high standard and in the short time I have been dealing with this model I have been very impressed. This is a fine looking telephone and working perfectly to dial out and receive using a UK plug socket.
To import as single items would cost around £27 each. No dial label is offered to be personalised on this model.
