OK Guys; As I stated the other day, I need to thin my collection. This Gold AE 80E is now up for grabs. See pictures below in my earlier post, if you want more just ask. I have no idea as to the actual value as this is the only one I have seen so I will take offers starting at what I have in to it which is $75.00. It is fully functional and looks great. There are some surface scratches that will probably polish out if you wish but I did not attempt it as I have no idea of the plating process and did not want to chance damaging it.

Just an update, both the Gold 80E and the Gold 182 Starlite live with me now in Vancouver. They started out somewhere in the mid west, then both moved to Harry's place in Florida. He promptly sent the Starlite Packing for Vancouver but supplied room and board for the 80E until it too eventually left Florida for the cold and rain of Vancouver.

Terry my friend,

those phones really belong in Southern CA. Weather in Canada is too cold and could cause cracking or splitting of the delicate housing and/or finish.

Yes I have been worrying about that Jorge. Vancouver would be much more hospitible to storing and displaying expertly restored gray AE 80's

But offsetting the cold, is the effect of California UV rays and heat on the plastic! ::)

That's a good argument.  :D :D :D But, aren't the ozone holes closer to the poles that to the equator? Didn't have to use the AC last year.

Yeah, I didn't have to turn on the AC last year either!
