Doug, I was in the same condition, after a work day I could not walk or even get out of the car.
Changed my life.

Nice phone. And one of the less common colours.

My favourite plastic phones are the 706 and 711. I love the dials on them.

I have a 706 in Ivory dated 1964. Prices range from £25 to whatever the seller dreams up. I've seen them advertised for about £150 but I'm not sure they sell/sell quickly for that.

I think your questions have mostly been answered re date etc, and the button is the party line button.

I am a bit late to this, but your red 706 looks great, you certainly polished it up well!

Being a 1967 it is from the final year of production.
