WECo Continentals & Imperials--Recent Auctions
« on: July 04, 2014, 04:50:01 PM »
WE 202s were remanufactured in the WE service centers in 1955-early 1956 as Continentals and Imperials. Continentals were usually the 302 colors--ivory, pekin red, or gray green. Imperials were gold. There was also a silver color (rhodium).

Pekin red Continental dated 1955. This one is from the estate of a man near Atlanta who used to install 2-way radios in Southern Bell and Ga. Power vehicles. He had acquired a good number of phones and parts dating from the 1960s and earlier, still in boxes, apparently surplused from a Southern Bell warehouse.

Sold for $209.99 postpaid on April 18, 2014.
