It arrived yesterday and was very well packed and in very nice shape just needs a cleaning doesn't appear to be much fading. Also appears to be all original except line cord of course (anyone know where I can find a gray line cord?) All date I have checked are 55.

Thanks Ben, now i just need to get it cleaned up. I did open it up and all date match and dial works great.

I've been looking for an original gray line cord for my otherwise complete yellow '55 500 with no success.   It also got "improved" by a previous owner who installed a silver satin modular cord, badly.   He did leave the mangled original date-matched retainer crimped onto the silver satin.
