All the inner workings are from 52, case from 65, dial 59. I plan to "de-refurbish" it back to what it was originally, a black hard-wired 500. Just need to find the parts for it.http://s252.photobucket.com/albums/hh22/Brinybay/Telephones/52%20Beige%20mod/

Quote from: George Knighton on January 07, 2013, 11:45:24 AMIs there a year or model of 500 that sort of represents the epitome of that design?One that is early, but has the major network improvements, but not modular?I sort of want one or two 500's, even though my preference is for earlier models, and I wonder which ones I should buy that sort of represent, if not actually the best, maybe the epitome.

Quote from: zaphod01 on January 26, 2013, 10:39:04 AMJust bought a 11-51 off ebay. 'Buy it now' price was $14.95. Had only been listed for a few minutes (4 views). Could be junk but I wasn't going to pass it up at that price.
