You mean "Pricess" phone pink, like you bought from ebay last week, and made me promise not to tell anyone?

Any color as long as it is black.

However.  I was thinking of getting a pink princess for my sister. ;)

Nice try Hobiesport;
So if anyone sees your name on an auction for a pink Princess phone you're covered. It won't work, Bill already tried that.

I only do black phones.

I thought of getting a pink princess for my sister but i couldn't find one with a metal dial. ;)

I don't think the Princess was ever made with a metal fingerwheel, anyone know for sure?

Speaking of Princess fingerwheels...If the Princess Phone came out in 1959 with the new solid clear fingerwheel (as opposed to the "open"), why did the 500s still have the soft-center fingerwheel until about 1965?  I've never seen an open fingerwheel on a Princess.  Has anyone else?

Let's set the record straight. I'm only into black, green, blue, and, yellow, and, don't like princess phones.

On the other hand, Dippy Dan told me to keep it secret that he secretly loves anything "hot" pink.
And, he also said  that the pink and, chartreuse paint job on his oak phone is coming along nicely.....

Hmmmm....might be fun to "make" one.  I've always thought about making a hybrid 2500 with clear Princess Phone buttons with a night-light.  I guess if you're a purist you'd never imagine such things  ;D
