The description of the car stated that it had new "breaks". I guess the seller was trying to save the buyer from having to add his/her own breaks.Larry
Quote from: Adam on November 27, 2010, 02:09:44 PMHere's a pic of a phone from eBay from a while back which I think is much more obviously a frankenphone.Notice the AE-style dial, probably from one of those Japanese "french" phone rip-offs, forced into a WE or ITT (it's hard to tell from this photo) Princess phone.

This Red "Western Electric" model 500 has an Automatic Electric chassis and housing, a Western Electric dial bezel and dial along with a G5 W.E. handset. The ringer box is thrown in for fun.http://goo.gl/99CrR
