Latest eBaY Scores for WesternElectricBen

Hey everyone,

I thought I'd share my most recent two eBaY scores, even though I told myself I wouldn't buy any phones for a while, but these were at good prices I couldn't pass up.

First: I bought a 1963 Aqua Blue 500 w/ minimal-no discoloration. Link:
Secondly: I bought a 1965 Pink Trimline (first year of the trimline,) once again w/ little-no discoloration. Link:

Overall, I think I got some pretty good finds, and I thought I'd share em' with you guys. Hopefully, I will be able to restore the phones quickly as I've been pretty busy with schoolwork this last month.


Mr. Bones

Nice phones, Ben!

     Looking forward to the restoration pictures.

Best regards!

Thanks, Mr. Bones.

I actually got them in on Tuesday, but I'm just now getting around to posting the images. I'm already almost done with the pink phone, the cord just needs to finish its treatment.

Sadly, the phones are a bit more discolored than they looked in the pictures, (more the pink) but they will definitely clean up nicely.



I got the pink Trimline done, it will fit nicely into my collection. Please ignore the bad lighting and frilly tablecloth. :)
