Recent find: AE Spacemaker in Pink
« on: November 21, 2020, 09:36:29 PM »
Found this on eBay and won for $49.95 + 14.65 shipping ($64.60 all in).

I don’t see a lot of pink Spacemakers, so I grabbed it.  It’s nearly in mint condition - no wear on the plastics, chrome is shiny and not pitted or rough, dial turns properly, no fading. Only blemish I can see is a small cracK in the dial shroud, barely noticeable.  Definitely a showpiece!

 Is this the type phone in pink that Ron Knappen
(phonecoinc) provided for the film "Peggy Sue Got Married"?

Why do pink phones always look so good?

Very nice!
